Watching movies should feel cozy. Movist takes care of your experience while putting control in your hands. Play favorite videos with subtitles, customize settings as you watch, and let the app automatically build playlists for you. You also get a Safari extension to watch videos on the web, with all Movist features included.
Movist is an easy-to-use and powerful movie player. You can instantly choose the QuickTime or FFmpeg decoder for each video codec and reopen it with other decoders. Movist supports many useful features to enjoy movies, including H.264, H.265/HEVC hardware video decoder acceleration, digital audio out (S/PDIF), high-quality subtitles, a convenient & beautiful user interface, and more.
Movist Pro features
Play videos effortlessly with Movist, using QuickTime or FFmpeg decoder. You can reopen a movie with any other decoder anytime. The app has in-built support for hardware-accelerated decoding of H.265/HEVC. So you’ll have lightning-fast access to your movies.
Define your flow
Thanks to fully customizable preferences, you can set the app to display subtitles, specify video quality and size, or even make it apply filters to your media. Toggle between dark and light themes to please your eye. With the control panel on your screen, you can also change preferences as you watch.
Extensive subtitles support
It’s what you won’t find in QuickTime. Subtitles are Movist’s huge superpower – with tons of formats and settings available. View subs in multiple languages put them in letterboxes that adjust to your screen, or have Movist read subtitles for you.
HDR tone mapping
A superpower of Movist is that it can upgrade your non-HDR screen. Normally, when you view HDR media on a non-HDR screen, the colors will appear light or faded. Movist’s HDR tone mapping technology fixes the problem by adjusting the color professionally.
You name your playlist; Movist does all the housekeeping. Every time you open a video, the app will search for matching series and subtitles files to put your media into the right playlist. If you want, you can remove or add movies manually anytime.
Support for web and network play
Movist adds capabilities for watching videos right from your browser with the Safari extension in the pro version. All the features are maintained, including subs, auto-fill playlists, and overlay controls. Plus, the app enables you to play media on network servers like FTP, SFTP, and SMB.
