Most people use either CCCP or mpv for playback. However, the CCCP site became dysfunctional at the beginning of 2019, so we’ve provided a mirror of the latest stable builds here.

mpv is available from its official site, but can be very barebones as a media player. Third party GUIs exist:

  • mpc-qt attempts to replicate the MPC-HC interface while internally running mpv. However, it may require some configuration to look like default MPC-HC. While only Windows builds are officially released, macOS and linux users should be able to build the player from source code.
  • IINA is a macOS-only player based on mpv that looks like a native macOS application.

A list of other players can be found here.
