MPlayerX 1.0.17 – Alternative, modern media player.

MPlayerX is an alternative media player powered by ffmpeg and mplayer.

“Well, I was really tired of Mplayer OS X. It runs OK but, it looks like a ninety year old man.”

And also, the new technology Apple prevailed, such as Core Animation, Grand-Central Dispatch, even OpenCL, pushed me to give them a try.

So I started without even knowing how to program under Mac, came to know Xcode, Objective-C 2.0, Cocoa and the Core family.

It is still in such a primary status, I will keep on enhance and figure out how to do this and how to do that.

Now it could do:

  • Multi-Screen Fullscreen support.
  • Apple Remote support.
  • Multi-Touch support.
  • Automatic find next proper file to play.
  • Auto detect the encode method of subtitle file (with Universal Charset Detector).
  • Snapshot.
  • Multi-Threaded ffmpeg support.
  • Change subtitle size while playing(except VOBSub)
  • Remember last played time and resume playing.


Version 1.0.17:

  • Hardware Accelerated Video Decoding boosted.
  • New: scripting support added, which means now.
  • Fix: three fingers swiping stopped working.
  • Fix: in some mp3 and m4a files with album art, time/seek stopped working.
  • Fix: when paused, display dimmed and Mac falls to sleep.
  • Fix: video is wrongly decoded in some RealMedia files.
  • Fix: the remaining time is wrong when playback speed is not 1x.
  • Fix: the position of the play control always reset when app exits.
