IINA: A Subtle Media Player
The IINA Mac media player takes an interesting direction. Instead of trying to develop its own separate design, it tries its best to integrate with the Apple ecosystem. This entails extensive support for Apple hardware and system functions, such as touchpad gestures and Retina technology.
It looks unremarkable, but that’s the intention - it blends in well. In fact, some might argue that it nails the "default app" look better than QuickTime itself.

- Has the look and feel of a stock app
- Innovative design
- Browser integration possible
- Uses macOS to the fullest extent
- Various playback bugs
