πŸ›° Orbital - Video File Browser

Orbital is a local-first desktop app that allows you to search, filter, and preview video (and image) files on your computer. It turns your computer's file browser into YouTube. All questions (and suggestions) can be directed to me on πŸ‘‰ Twitter.

How does it work?



  • Gallery view of videos and images.

  • Search files through all sub-folders with filename.

  • Preview media files and traverse them with keybindings.

  • Drag and drop media files into other apps like iMovie or Da Vinci Resolve.

  • Choose between light, dracula, and gruvbox color themes.
