Chroma player for Mac

By Mirailabs Free to try

Developer's Description

Chroma is a movie player for playing feature movies, no matter if it's DVDs, MPEG, QuickTime, DivX AVI's, XviD or Windows Media files.

It contains optimized codecs for MPEG4, DivX, XviD, 3ivx and MS-MPEG4. It plays QuickTime movies. It plays Windows Media WMV's with Flip4Mac's components. It does AVI subtitles. It plays DVDs. It has windowed, fullscreen and overlay presentations.

This is not a ported application or front end for some command line tool; Chroma is a from ground up a 100% native Mac OS X application that looks and feels like a Mac application should. It's built on the QuickTime media library with its excellent audio synchronisation and full support for all QuickTime movies and QuickTime codec plug-ins.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2009.1

  • Opening multiple movies or dropping multiple movies on Chroma will pop up a small playlist window. Each movie will play in succession without user intervention.
  • Following many requests there is now a subtitle option to display two shorter subtitle lines instead of one long. The double subtitle option is selected in the Subtitle preferences.
  • Many improvements in making subtitles line-break for readability, especially for ideographic languages like Chinese.
  • External subtitles now support more of their standard markup tags, and several known but non-standard tags have been added.
  • The outline style has been changed and should be more readable, especially with thin fonts. Now both 'outline' and 'shadow' subtitle styles work on Mac OS X 10.2 too.
  • Now prevents screen dimming while watching movies on newer MacBooks and MacBook Pros.
  • Improved text encoding detection for muxed subtitles (subtitles in the movie file), and improved detection of ISO Latin2 and Thai text encodings.
  • Chroma now releases the AppleRemote when not active so other applications can use it.
