What are some of the benefits to using this over VLC? Is it just a slicker UX?

@bentossell Nice discovery Ben. VLC is pretty much the standard in this field, but macOS sure can use a dedicated modern media player.

I'm sceptical. I'm waiting for a good developer to look in the source code and confirm there is no malicious code.
Simon Bromberg@shimmb · Technical Lead @DashMD , sbromberg.com
@sidrock28 The project is totally open source. Hiding malicious code in plain sight would be some pretty ace-level scamming, although I suppose it's theoretically possible. In my experience sketchy things look sketchy.

@sidrock28 Why, though?

@shimmb @sidrock28 The website also offers a bundled app binary. It's not as unlikely or uncommon as you're leading others to believe.

@nipponese @sidrock28 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

VLC gets the job done but I'm definitely keeping my eye on this project now.
Christopher Hannah@chrishannah · Swift Developer / Writer
Great find! I've thought for a while VLC seemed a bit outdated for the modern platform, and this instantly looks like a worthy long term replacement. The design is great and it really suits macOS.

Of course I had to link to it from my blog - http://radicalthinker.net/iina-t...
