Describe the project you work on

Unofficial mpv nightly build for macOS.

I always want to recommend mpv.app to my non-programming friends as the best third party video player on macOS.

However, mpv doesn't provide any official binary package.

I setup this automatical nightly job to build the latest version of mpv.app for people who prefer to download, drag it to /Applications/ folder and enjoy their life.

Q&A

Why only for macOS, I need Linux, Windows... version

Well, I use mpv.app on macOS only.

System requirements

A modern Macintosh machine officially supported by Apple.

Vintage and obsolete products, Hackintosh or any other third-party patched macOS versions are untested, cannot and does not guarantee the functionality or performance.

OS support

macOS version compatibility
Big Sur 11.0 ❓
Catalina 10.15 🟒
Mojave 10.14 🟒
High Sierra 10.13 🟒
Sierra 10.12 ❌
Any older versions < 10.12 ❌
  • 🟒 means compatible
  • ❌ means incompatible
  • ❓ means unknown

macOS, formerly known as OS X, does not have an official statement about its End-Of-Life policy. Based on wikipedia, it seems Apple only provides support to last 3 major release versions. So I try my best to support last 3 major release versions.

Why nightly? I need the stable version

mpv does not release the stable version frequently, the stable release is created to make Linux distributions happy.

"mpv" cannot be opened because the developer can not be verified

notarization_warning

macOS requires software to be notarization for security purposes. This process requires a $99 annual subscription plan. I don't have enough money for it.

There are at least 2 workarounds available

(1) You can hold your βŒ₯ aka alt/option key > right click the mpv.app, and then choose open

(2)

  • from Apple ο£Ώ menu

  • then click General
  • finally click Open Anyway

I download it, how can I change some settings

Place a mpv.conf in your ~/.mpv folder, read the manual if you can. My configuration looks like this.

This does not work for me

Feel free to open an issue.
