The Best Alternative to PotPlayer for Mac - Elmedia Player
With the number of media players available today on the market PotPlayer still stands out. The application supports a very wide range of media formats and offers plenty of configurable options. Despite its advanced functionality that allows you to do pretty much everything you might want to do while playing back a video or audio, the app does not slow down your PC’s performance and its UI is fairly easy-to-use. No wonder PotPlayer is favored so much by experts and users.
With all the buzz around PotPlayer, there is a bit of disappointment awaiting Mac users - PotPlayer is Windows only. Hey, but no need to worry much, Eltima Software inspired by the popularity of this application developed a great PotPlayer alternative for Mac – Elmedia. This PotPlayer for Mac offers even more advantages such as downloading videos from the Internet. Let us have a closer look at them.
The best way to organize media content on Mac is to group videos into playlists, you can add and remove content from the playlists whenever you need to. With this PotPlayer for Mac OS X you can populate playlists with audio and video stored on the local drives or from the Internet; save playlists on your PC or export them to some online storage service, e.g. Dropbox.
Elmedia’s video tuner and graphic equalizer will elevate your viewing experience. The former allows adjusting video parameters such as brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpness, etc., while the latter helps you shape your audio, choosing from ten preset frequencies. If there are external audio tracks for a video, Elmedia will load them for you.
One of the main advantages PotPlayer offers is subtitle support. Being PotPlayer for Mac, Elmedia not only loads subtitles files for videos – both automatically and manually, it also enables editing them. You can set up encoding, choose font, size, color, including border color. The app also allows syncing subtitles with audio and video tracks by adjusting a parameter called ‘audio delay’.
