IINA 1.2.0 - video and media player optimized for M1 chips

The Media player app IINA is considered the best VLC alternative and has been available free of charge for the Apple Mac for a long time. After the VLC Player version 3.0.12 / 3.0.12.1 was already optimized for the M2021 chip of the new Mac models in January 1, IINA is now following suit. Version IINA 1.2.0 is not only optimized for the "Apple Silicon", but should also run on Intel chips thanks to "Universal Binary" in the same version. You can find all information and the free download on the official website just like GitHub. At least Mac OS X 10.11 is required; at least macOS 10.15 Catalina is recommended.

The new IINA version 1.2.0 is optimized for M1 chips in new Mac models with Apple Silicon. The media player also runs on Intel Macs. You can get all information in this post.

IINA 1.2.0 for Intel chips and the M1 SoC from Apple

Version 1.1.2 is offered as a direct download of the app on the IINA website linked above. On the GitHub page, which is also linked, you can get the IINA version 1.2.0, which was created by Apple for both Intel processors and the M1 chip. The media player based on the "mpv player" provides several options for playing music, videos, streams and other content on all systems. A picture-in-picture mode, for example, is offered as a special feature. In addition to other languages, the program is available 100% translated into German.

Do I need IINA 1.2.0 on an Intel Mac?

Basically not. If you are already using IINA 1.1.2, you do not need to update. Because the current 1.2 edition mainly brings compatibility with the Apple silicon with himself. Further improvements or even completely new functions are not provided with it. But if you are already here, you are welcome to describe your experiences with IINA. Personally, I mainly use the VLC player, and have done so for many years. He can do everything possible and impossible. That's why I'm not interested in switching right now. But which advantages of the software can you make me palatable? Please leave a comment :D
