Free Mac Media Player - Best Music Player for Mac

Currently, there are a lot of music player tools available in the market. For user's reference, here lists the top music players for Mac OS X, along with their basic information.

1. Free Mac Media Player

A kind of all-in-one Mac media player software which supports all the popular audio (*.aac, *.ac3, *.aif, *.aiff, *.amr, *.ape, *.cda, *.dts, *.flac, *.m4a, *.mka, *.m4p, *.mp3, *.oga, *.ogg, *.wav, *.wma, etc.) and video formats (*.3gp, *.amv, *.asf, *.avi, *.divx, *.dv, *.f4v, *.flv, *.iso, *.m2t, *.m2ts, *.m4v, *.mkv, *.mov, *.mp2, *.mp4, *.mpg, *.mts, *.mtv, *.mxf, *.rm, *.rmvb, *.tod, *.ts, *.vob, *.vro, *.webm, *.wmv, etc.). What's more, the built-in DTS5.1 technology will provide you fantastic stereo outputs.

Free trial version of this powerful Media Player is now available on Macgo Official Download Center, or you can click here to download Free Mac Media Player, and then drag its icon to your Application folder.

2. Amarra by Sonic Studio (Commercial)

Classified into three flavours: Amarra, Amarra Mini and Amarra Junior with varying features and prices, the player software basically acts as an attachment to iTunes and utilizes some fancy iZotope resampling software for the ultimate playback experience. However, the license either requires an iLok USB key or the software is locked to a single computer which can't be transferred.

3. Audirvana (Free, Open Source)

The first player offers a window that looks like a piece of hi-fi gear, offering device "hog mode" and up-sampling for free. However, its feature list is fairly basic now.

4. BitPerfect (Commercial)

Integrating with iTunes, this software sits in your menu bar and feeds music via Integer Mode to your DAC. Great if you want a simple and cheap solution while still using iTunes.

5. Clementine Player (Free and Open Source based on Amarok 1.4)

This multi-platform player is more of a music organizer than anything, with features geared in that direction, rather than having any audiophile settings. Its user interface is faster because it is Qt-based instead of Java-based.

6. Decibel by Steven F Booth (Commercial)

A basic, high-quality music player, which was previously called "AyreWave" in conjunction with Ayre, now dropped any association with them and has been renamed Decibel. The software itself allows one-click importing from files selected in the Finder or iTunes, "hog mode".

7. Ecoute by PixiApps (Commercial)

It is a more attractive music player with iTunes integration, including song rating and metadata support. It is designed for people who want a slick, theme-able one-window interface and want to share their listening habits on Twitter, Facebook or LastFM. What's more, it supports Apple remote control. However, this pretty add-on will require some cash.

8. Fidelia by Audiophile Engineering (Commercial)

A more classy media player than Audirvana, which offers a main window that looks like a piece of high-end hi-fi gear, with the ability to play music directly from iTunes playlists without iTunes running. It comes with an array of on-the-fly re-sampling methods and remote control software for the iPhone and iPod Touch available in the App Store.

9. Play by Steven F Booth (Free)

This free package is almost the only alternative to iTunes if you want a simple music player and nothing else. It allows access to the built-in Mac OS X audio effects filters, which can be very handy if you want a 31-band equalizer, high-pass filter or the like.

10. Pure Music by Channel D (Commercial)

Based upon Pure Vinyl and using its own playback engine, like Amarra, integrates with iTunes, running alongside iTunes and resamples stuff on-the-fly. Unlike Amarra, it requires iTunes to be running to select tracks, but offers a considerable slew of other options.

11. Songbird (Free)

Made by previous Firefox, Netscape and Winamp developer, it is more like a multi-platform internet connected media library project. It is pretty much the "anti-iTunes" of this roundup, even though a lot of the buttons look exactly like iTunes' playback interface.

12. Vox by Alessio Nonni (Free but donations requested)

This free player is slowly developed much like Play, which does little more than play music with a minimal footprint. Like Play, it gives access to in-built Mac OS X audio effects filters.
