Elmedia Player
Free media player for Mac OS X

A multifunctional free media player for Mac, Elmedia Player supports a wide range of common and not so common audio & video formats, including FLV, SWF, WMV, AVI, MOV, MP4, MP3, DAT, FLAC, M4V, MPG, MKV and more. It can play virtually all media files on your Mac. This player also boasts a number of handy features such as built-in web-browser and Open URL option that allow you to watch online videos from the app window.

Perfect HD Experience
Powerful Media Player

HD content playback is a resource-intensive task, and if a media player is not capable of coping with it well, expect choppy, jittery or slow playback. However with Elmedia Player a perfectly smooth HD experience is guaranteed thanks to hardware accelerated decoding, which significantly unloads the processor and helps avoiding video slowdown or troubles with sound sync, etc.

Watch YouTube videos online

Open Online Video option lets you access YouTube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion videos directly from the app - no need to bring up a browser, no noisy ads to distract you. If you open YouTube video via Open Online Video option of Elmedia Player you'll see subtitles right where they belong. On a right-click you can choose whether to open a video in browser or to download a file. Note, the latter is available in Elmedia PRO.

Playback movies & animations of any format

Elmedia is a universal player for virtually all media formats – DivX, WMV, FLV, SWF, AVI, MOV, MP4, MP3, etc. Throw any movie or animation at it – the video player will play it back on your Mac.

Enjoy Your Music Collection

Elmedia Player supports a great number of audio formats, incl. MP3, AAC, etc. Perfect for storing and managing your entire music collection, here you can tailor multiple playlists to match every mood of yours.

SWF Settings

You can choose to watch videos in full screen mode, hide control panel, deactivate screensaver during playback, and pin video on top of other running applications – nothing will distract you from watching or gaming experience. This video player for Mac boasts settings exclusive to SWF: you can choose quality of your playback and activate Flash local security, as well as exchanging data over network.
  • Adjust video playback

    Don't just make your downloaded video loop constantly - you can actually set the starting and the ending frame for it. You can constantly display the exact part of the video without the need to cut it in parts. If for some reason the video is not in sync with its audio, Elmedia can fix this issue for you. It can decrease or increase audio delay to make it match the action on the screen.
  • Save and manage subtitles

    Not only will Elmedia download a video with its subtitles, but it will also let you set up encoding, font, size, font color, and border color for them. In case subtitles are not in perfect sync with the video, you can use increase/decrease subtitles delay option. Also load the subtitles file automatically (.srt, .ass, .smil, etc.) or manually with Elmedia.
  • Convert Flash Projectors to SWF PRO

    Turning Projector EXE files into SWF format takes only a few clicks. You are also given an option to change the original file’s name.
  • Make screenshots from the videos PRO

    Make a screenshot of the favorite moment or convert the whole movie into series of screenshots. Save images as TIFF, PNG, GIF.

Enhanced Playback Features

Media player for Mac OS X features video tuner to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation and other related parameters. It also includes a graphic equalizer with 10 carefully chosen frequencies for you to shape your sound. Equalizer lets you choose presets out of existing ones (Large Hall, Party, etc.) or create custom presets. If a video uses external audio tracks – Elmedia will automatically load them.

Elmedia supports aspect ratio change and playback speed adjustment and features on-screen display for different events, like pausing, flipping, rotating videos, etc. Make sure to use your Apple RCU and standard Mac media keys – this free media player fully supports them.

Playlist Compilation & Editing

This media player helps organizing audio & video content on your Mac by enabling playlists compilation. You can populate playlists with local or online content, store them on your hard drive or export to an online storage service like Dropbox.

To make things easier Elmedia lets you search through playlists. You can benefit from "Add open files to playlist" option. When opening YouTube playlist in the app (File → Open URL), all tracks are automatically added to Elmedia playlist. Or you can disable this option in Preferences if you don't need it.

Flexible audio settings PRO

Virtual surround for headphones lets you hear the sound as if it is transcending the headphones, going from front to back, from side to side. Virtual speakers for headphones make the sound similar to that you hear from loudspeakers, with each ear hearing both channels taking distance and head shadowing effect into consideration.

Choose output device for video and audio PRO

Elmedia lets you set the output device for your audio – speakers, headphones, etc. You can choose the number of sound channels: two-channel, four-channel, or eight-channel. If you have DVDs, which are usually encoded in AC-3 (Dolby Digital) or DTS (Digital Theater System), Elmedia Player can be configured to relay the audio data without decoding it. When using several monitors, you can choose where the fullscreen mode will be showing.

Web Browser
Browse Web from the App Window

Elmedia Player integrates web-browsing support to watch online media without leaving the application. To use the built-in browser switch to the browser mode, find a video you’d like to watch in the Internet and – start watching it right away!

Download from YouTube PRO

Saving videos from YouTube with Elmedia is easy: switch to the browser mode, find the YouTube video you’d like to save and click Download – make sure to choose the right download format. If a YouTube video is embedded in other website you'll see the download link even without playing the video. Subtitles, if any, will be downloaded together with the video. You can actually download the whole YouTube playlist in a desired format!

Extract Audio PRO

Quite often what we need is actually an audio track, not a video as such. Instead of downloading the entire video, save your time & disk space by extracting audio in MP3, M4A or other supported format.

Download from the Internet PRO

Elmedia can download various videos including RTMP streams or HTML5 videos. That is pretty much always some news channels where regular downloaders just fail, but if you use Elmedia you'll have a much needed video on your hard disk available to watch even when offline.

Also Elmedia downloads brilliantly from popular video hosting services such as Metacafe, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Facebook, Yahoo, etc. It works pretty much the same as with YouTube – switch to browser mode, go to the web site, select a video and click Download.

Download SWF Resources PRO

SWF files at times require external resources for correct playback – usually these are flash files or other media. Elmedia Player detects them and gives you an option to download or not download them.

PRO’s Extra Benefits

Additional features include downloading from the Internet – videos, their soundtracks, RTMP streams, animations, converting Flash EXE files into SWF format, taking still screenshots from the video, and much more.
