Enables playback of web-based media with IINA, today's hottest macOS media player.

Fully supports YouTube videos and playlists.

Doesn't require additional add-ons like "native client", superseding similar plugin solutions.

Seamlessly integrating IINA with your Browser, this add-on simplifies using the apps' features, performance and user experience for playing back web-based media.

By delegating the rendering of high-definition web video (like 4K or HDR) to the native macOS app, hardware accelerated playback works regardless of any browser compatibility issues. Playback of web-based surround audio on external rigs or audio interfaces stops being a gamble.

Open with IINA is fully open source and hosted on GitHub.
