PhreshPlayer

Media player.

Phreshplayer

Inspired by mpv player (with old hud) - I'm really liked it.. :( and PotPlayer.

Developed using Electron.

Keep It Simple!

I'm sick of so much bullsh.t features in modern mediaplayers like kmp, vlc, etc. Filters, useless view modes and more..

At last time I used PotPlayer but at this time is overhyped too.

The lot of extra features is it would be awesome, but finaly the program can't do that normally what it created first. So I make my own..

I don't planning more features to the updates (exept audioTrack support/changes if will supported..), only neccessary bug fixes.

The Phresh media player is a simple and intuitive desktop app for Windows, Mac and Linux. It plays media files.. end of story.

In turn, I pays great attention to the naturality, easy and clear usage with much (and usual) keyboard shortcuts and some mouse gestures.

The player has an right click menu also for more powerful support the handling.

PhreshPlayer knows read the '.srt' subtitles also.

A feature though!

Still I see today '.avi' and '.wmv' files, so..

.. if you drop an (or more) '.avi' or '.wmv' file into the player, then convert files to '.mp4' automatically (and add it to playlist also automatically after conversion).

WARNING! High CPU usage while converting.

The conversion unfortunately work only Linux and Windows. As far as I know, not works on MacOS and the CPU limit works on Linux only.

The application can read folders also, but just 1 level deep:

  • Folder

    • Folder2
      • file level 3
    • file level 2
    • file2 level 2
  • file level 1

  • file2 level 1

level 1 and level 2 files will append also to the playlist if you drop in at the same time, but level 3 file in Folder2 won't.

'Sorry bro, no mana..'

The electron (and the original too) Chromium/Chrome currently not support multi audio tracks in html 5 video players, so the language change unavilable yet in multi language videos.. :(

Unfortunately I can't test on MacOS, so if you want better support for Mac, buy me a MacBook.. :D .. Or write to me the problems and deficiency what you found and i'll try to fix it.
