iPlayer for Mac
There’s little to no reason to install a video or an audio player on your Mac, since Apple’s QuckTime Player now comes with subtitle support and iTunes can deal with most audio formats.
Simple to use multimedia player with an Intuitive, but out of style interface
However, iPlayer has been created from scratch to replace both of them being designed as a no-frills and easy to use multimedia player, with a minimal, although quite outdated, user interface.
The first thing you’ll notice is iPlayer’s iTunes-like interface which, in spite of the fact that it imitates the old, iTunes 10 look, still manages to neatly pack the tools you need to play both audio and video content.
Built-in subtitle rendering engine created to make it possible to effortlessly add transcripts to your movies
In addition, iPlayer allows you to view subtitled videos and, because it comes with support for the most popular subtitle formats out there, it will successfully render them even if they’re SRT, SSA, SMI SUB or even ASS files.
The iPlayer app is also capable of automatically remembering where you left off the last time you used it, thus helping you start watching the movie again without having to browse through it until you find the exact moment you stopped.
What’s more, iPlayers also plays MKV files and will instantly pick up any embedded subtitles for you in order to let you view your movies without having to find a suitable subtitle on your own.
Streamlined and minimalist multimedia player with inbuilt Apple Remote support
Controlling iPlayer is also a breeze, mainly since it has built-in support for the Apple Remote. This way you will not have to get up from your couch when you need to pause a movie or you want to skip to the next song.
To sum it all up, iPlayer is a useful little tool if you need a straightforward and Apple Remote compatible multimedia player for your Mac.
