MPlayerX 1.0.16 – Alternative, modern media player

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

“Well, I was really tired of Mplayer OSX. 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
