Great Multi-format Video Player


I wasn’t so sure how good this is until I start using it on my old video files. I was glad that it can play video files and their subtitles. This is a versatile video player. I got concerned recently when I read an article that this was found to be infected with some malware on October 19, 2017. But the company quickly responded to the report. Having purchased mine sometime in 2016, my anti-virus did not find any threats on this app when I scanned it. So, I am still giving it 5 stars.

Great App … didn’t meet my specific need though


I’ll start with the positive because my specific need is very limited:
App is beautiful, you can throw a lot of files at it (way more than Quicktime) and has those Apple friendly features.
It feels like the power of VLC mixed with the elagence of Quicktime.
I will defintiely use this a lot.

I stumbled onto this App looking for an MXF player, which it does play MXF files, for clients to review files easily on sets.
MXF’s are a container file though and not ever codec will be supported. I was hoping to get DNxHD support (Avid codec) and it won’t.
This is probably related to my camera that creates the MXF files so I can’t knock the App for that.

If you have a specific file - you may want to reach out to support first and see if they can play it on their end.

If you are just looking for a Swiss Army knife (Perian pun) this is a good one to get.

It Plays Everything


Elmedia Player plays every file I’ve attempted. It has also played files that were somewhat corrupted (I guess) so that RealPlayer or QuickTime wouldn’t play them. This could be the only media player you’ll ever need. I rated 4 because it needs a button for rewinding 30 seconds and a longer bar for rewinding and advancing in large steps. The existing short bar doesn’t offer fine control for moving through a video.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback. We may add such button in the future updates of the Elmedia Player.
