Summary

The "Media Player" is a browser extension to play music and video files either locally or from online sources. This project aims to bring a VLC-liked media playing experience using native HTML5 technology. The add-on is built on top of the well-known "video.js" project by applying a few custom plug-ins to enhance the user experience. This player supports media boosting, speed control, playlist media selection, fullwidth-progress bar, HTTP-streaming (M3U8), cast to a remote device, and wave surfer visual for audio files.

How to Use (local resources): Open the interface and drop the media link to it How to Use (remote resources): Open a video page like https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp Right-click on the player and select "Open in Media Player"

You can start watching an offline video file by dragging and dropping the video file into the player or pressing the big play button. To have the player load subtitle make sure to drop both video and subtitle files together (The dropped subtitle should have the same name as the file and needs to be in SRT or VTT format). Also, you can add a subtitle file later using the "+CC" button. This button appears when there is no subtitle found for the current track.

Extra Features:

  1. Video casting: right-click on the player. If your browser supports this feature, you can transfer the media to a remote device.
  2. Take a screenshot: Press the "screenshot" button on the player
  3. 2x volume-boosting: Like VLC, you can boost the audio by 200%. Use the boosting feature when the volume is not loud enough.
  4. Media Capturing: The player can optionally detect media files in the current tab and transfer them to the media player

Works like charm for most files! Sometimes doesn't play audio on .mkv files and can't play 2160p. Almost perfect!

Only video player I have found that works with Nvidia RTX HDR and SuperResolution, which works like magic for standard 1080p videos, also supports subtitles which is awesome, just 2 complaints: -some audio codecs are missing -subtitles setting reset to default every time, no save option.
