Movist 2.0 released!

All new Movist returned.
More convenient, More powerful and More beautiful.
In addition, free update!
Now meet the new Movist.

macOS 10.10 or later required.
Optimized for macOS 10.14 Mojave.

Movist has not been updated in the last two months and has been removed from the App Store since a month ago.

This is because Apple has refused to update the app, and they have also removed from the App Store the already accepted version.

What Apple pointed out was that Movist has a feature of "downloading 3rd party media". So we removed the Safari Extension to allow YouTube videos to be played in Movist and removed the feature from Movist too. But Apple still refused to update because Movist has that feature yet. After all, we had no choice but to remove all streaming functionality from Movist.

We know Movist users like streaming feature. And We were always sorry that we can't add useful features in the Movist because of the App Store restrictions.

So we finally decided to develop a separate version for sale on our homepage. I have not yet decided how to sell it, and how to benefit from the users who purchased it from the App Store, but I am trying to show you a sales version of the homepage that has many useful features for you.

We have not decided how to sell it yet, but we am trying to show you a homepage version that contains useful features as soon as possible. (We are also considering ways to make the homepage version available to users who have purchased it from the App Store.)

We apologize again for the bug fixed version still not being updated.

Beautiful and Convenient User Interface

The controllers are practical and convenient, as well as appearing only when the mouse pointer is approaching. Transparent title-bar and controllers allow you to focus more on your watching experience.

The main menu displays various states in real time, and the control panel gives you quick access to all the functions you need.
Move the mouse over the seek-slider to see the thumbnails.

In addition to all these conveniences, we have added beauty.
It supports modern style of macOS including light and dark themes.

Improved performance

Movist supports hardware accelerated decoding of H.265/HEVC codec.
You can enjoy 4K UHD images comfortably.

Also, it is optimized to consume minimum energy.
CPU Usage has been cut in half.

Internet video

You can watch the videos included in the web page with Movist.
Just click the button on the Safari toolbar. (Safari extension is provided.)
You can of course enter the internet address manually or drag the internet link.

You can choose the quality, see the subtitles, and use all Movist functions.
You can add it to your playlist, and you can open it again from recently opened list.

Now, you just have to look at the Internet video conveniently.

We're sorry but this feature has been removed since version 2.0.6 because it's not allowed by Mac App Store Guideline. We're looking for other ways to support this feature.

When you open a media

There are many default preferences to apply when you open a media.

You can specify the default track language.
For example, video and audio in Korean, subtitles in English, or
you can set not to display subtitles if there's an English audio track.

You can specify your preferred video quality, filters, equalizer, etc.
You can also restore the last time you played it to watch from there.

Multiple tracks simultaneously

You can view subtitles in multiple languages at the same time.
You can also set the different location and style for each languages.

You can also select multiple tracks simultaneously for video and audio.
For example, if the front and rear videos of the car black box are contained in one file, you can see the front and back videos at the same time.

Using Letterbox

Movist will display subtitles in the letterbox space if possible.
The subtitles not only mask the video but also improve visibility.

Movist will adjust the height of the letterbox automatically
so that the subtitles are laid out in line units.
You can also set the number of lines to be displayed in the letterbox.

Please, do not waste letterbox space.

Listening subtitles

Movist can read the subtitles aloud.
If you have trouble seeing the subtitles, listen now.

Subtitles can be just spoken without screen display, and you can control the speaking speed.
You can also adjust the play/pause automatically according to the speaking speed.
It would be great to use it for language study.

Complex settings are not necessary.
Just press the "Speech" button.

Convenient playlists

When you open a file, Movist creates a playlist and
finds and fills the series and subtitle files in the same folder.
You can also manually add and remove files.

You can save the playlist and recall it later.
You do not need to manage the playlist files.
Movist manages all of them.
Just give the playlist a name.
