MPV Player for macOS is a media player based on MPlayer and mplayer2. It supports a wide variety of video file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types. Special input URL types are available to read input from a variety of sources other than disk files. Depending on platform, a variety of different video and audio output methods are supported.
It has a fully configurable, command-driven control layer which allows you to control MPV using keyboard, mouse, or remote control (there is no LIRC support - configure remotes as input devices instead).
Features and Highlights
Powerful scripting capabilities can make the player do almost anything.
On Screen Controller
While the app strives for minimalism and provides no real GUI, it has a small controller on top of the video for basic control.
High quality video output
MPV has an OpenGL, Vulkan, and D3D11 based video output that is capable of many features loved by videophiles, such as video scaling with popular high quality algorithms, color management, frame timing, interpolation, HDR, and more.
GPU video decoding
It can leverage most hardware decoding APIs on all platforms. Hardware decoding can be enabled at runtime on demand.
A straightforward C API was designed from the ground up to make MPV usable as a library and facilitate easy integration into other applications.
MPV Player is under active development, focusing on code refactoring and cleanups as well as adding features.
Note: MPV has no official GUI.
