3. ‎Supports various video & audio formats

Elmedia player supports almost all video and audio formats available, including FLV, SWF, WMV, AVI, MOV, MP4, MP3, DAT, FLAC, M4V, MPG, MKV and more. When it comes to playing HD videos, most media players gives choppy playback and glitches due to some decoding issues and lack of hardware support. Elmedia player, on the other hand, has hardware accelerated playback which can play up to 4K and 8K resolution HD/UHD videos on your Mac smoothly.

4. ‎Enhanced playback features

Elmedia player has an enhanced playback feature which allows you to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, aspect ratio, speed of the playback and other audio/video related parameters. It also has a sound equalizer with 10 carefully chosen frequencies for you to shape your sound.

5. ‎Manage subtitles

Elmedia player will automatically load the subtitles when you play the video. If any video doesn't have subtitles, you can add subtitles file (.srt, .ass, .smil, etc.) manually.

If subtitles are not in perfect sync with the video, you can adjust the delay option. You can also adjust the encoding, font, color, font size and border color of the subtitles.

6. ‎Stream music and video from AirPlay

Elmedia Player works wonderfully as an AirPlay Receiver and AirPlay Sender. You can stream music and video of various formats from AirPlay device (Mac, iOS, Android) to your Mac or vice-versa.

7. ‎Take screenshots from the video

It's very easy to take a screenshot on Mac. Elmedia player has made this task more easy for you. With just a few clicks, you can capture your favorite moment from the video or take a series of screenshots and save all images in the desired format (JPG, PNG, GIF etc.)

8. ‎Hardware accelerated playback

Hardware acceleration means that the graphical rendering is done on dedicated hardware (your GPU / graphics card) rather than your CPU. Elmedia player has hardware acceleration enabled by default. It uses GPU to decode a video frame which results in good performance and less power consumption.
