MPlayer OSX Extended

Version: rev15 || Release Date: 2013-11-10 || License: GPL Developer: Adrian Stutz | App Owner: dornand

This is an unofficial extended version of the MPlayer OSX GUI

While MPlayer is the superior media player for OSX and has a very nice GUI, it was lacking in access to the many powerful functions the backend provides and development hasn't been very fast.
Since I had some time on my hands I decided to learn Cocoa and improve the MPlayer OSX GUI.

In the process, I also figured out how to compile a redistributable version of the mplayer core and provide a recent build from the SVN.

Changes to the GUI include:

* More video filter options (Postprocessing, Deinterlace etc)
* Support for styled ASS subtitles
* Audio and video equalizers (not yet interactive)
* Taking Screenshots
* Stream selection
* Various interface improvements

Starting from rev12, MPlayer OSX Extended requires at least OSX 10.5 (Leopard). The last version to run on 10.4 (Tiger) is rev11, which can be downloaded here

doesn't work properly for me. it always rebuilds it's font cache and doesn't play most file formates (e.g. mkv)

Wonderful update to the aging MPlayer OSX. Doesn't allow command-line access last I checked, unfortunately, but this is an outstanding GUI.

If VLC can't handle it I usually try this player.

NB: the MPlayer project has added experimental multithread support (FFmpeg-mt branch), to allow use of multiple cores and cpus.
(Decoding with GPU support has also been added, but it only works on Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD, with newer NVidia video cards.)

Not only does this player have all the right functions, it looks awesome too!
