Eltima Elmedia Video Player is a free media player for macOS. It can play most common and many uncommon types of video and audio files, including .MP4, .AVI, .MKV, .MP3, and .FLAC files. It can also load subtitles saved as .SUB, .VTT, .SRT, or .ASS files, to play alongside video or audio.

In addition to the standard playback features you'd expect of a media player, Elmedia Video Player includes the ability to create and manage playlists and access media files stored on the web. Most notably, however, Elmedia Video Player allows you easily to search for subtitles for your favorite movies and TV shows, via the app's built-in integration with OpenSubtitles.org.

Those who enjoy Elmedia Video Player but want extra features can upgrade to the app's paid version. The paid version allows you to stream media to smart TVs and other devices, easily screenshot videos, and save the subtitles you've found on OpenSubtitles.org as local files.


Elmedia Video Player is a solid media player that will play most any type of video or audio file. Its best features, however, are its integration with OpenSubtitles.org and ability to load many types of subtitle files. If you're someone who frequently searches for subtitles when watching movies and TV shows, Elmedia Video Player may be the media player for you.
