Great App, best video player on a Mac

However I wish there were a couple of settings included.

I wish there was a setting to increase the size of thumbnails you can see on the time bar when you hover with the cursor.

Also, being able to use the quicktime player by default would also be handy instead of ffmpeg. Idk if its just placebo, but i think that givves better battery life

Best Lightweight Video Player on Mac (2024)

Movist has been the best-in-class video player on Mac for over 10 years now, and I've tried all of them (VLC, iina, iina , Screen, Elmedia, etc -- seriously, all of them). Movist remains the most effective and best supported. Thank you for all the hard work!
