    For M1 users, v1.2.0 is a universal build with native arm support. v1.2.0 can be found here (don't know why the website isn't updated - still links to v1.1.2).

    I had the same problem w/ my M1 Mac and I decided to install IINA video player. It's available to run natively on M1 Macs and it's written in SWIFT which makes it fast and lightweight and on top of that it has built in youtube-dl and you don't have to install anything else.

    I recently switched from VLC to IINA and I couldn't be happier. It's so much faster, prettier and open source as well. Feels like it puts less load onto my CPU in some scenarios (which makes sense, because it's written in Swift exclusively for macOS). I still have VLC installed, but IINA took its place in 99% of use cases.

    Tot – beautiful stream-of-consciousness note taking menubar app IINA – VLC is great and all, but IINA takes the cake when it comes to a native user interface. Plus, its built-in support of customisable trackpad gestures is just baller. Pixelmator Pro – THE native image editing software. They're been in the game for like a decade or more now.
  • Open-Source Software for MacOS

    In a recent post by u/B4PTIST4, they mentioned that IINA is the best media player for macOS so I was wondering what other such free/open-source software can I use for my intel Macbook Air?. I recently tried Raycast and while I see the functionality in it, I'm a student so the default file search isn't really cutting it for me. Saying that I could set up hotkeys for me to use the dictionary while not going off my main screen so it was partly useful.

    I assume this is the app you're talking about? If that's the case why not use something like IINA or VLC.
