It’s been a while since I’m using SodaPlayer, a video player app that lets you play all the video formats on your Mac. Before SodaPlayer I used to use VLC Media Player for watching Videos and Movies and I used to think that VLC is probably the best out there because it comes with lots of features, most of which I never used.

SodaPlayer is a simple video player, with a design that will make you watch more Videos and Movies. I won’t call it the best video player, but in terms of experience and in terms of features, I would say it’s best for me.

The best thing about SodaPlayer is that it lets you stream torrents directly, all you have to do is copy the magnet link and paste it in the windows, or you can also add the .torrent file. It’ll automatically start playing the torrent. The other feature that I like and which I think is really useful is, it automatically finds the subtitles for the movie you’re playing and with just two clicks, you can add subtitles. You can choose to add subtitles in a lot of languages. Apart from these, SodaPlayer also lets you cast the video or movie that you’re playing to your TV using Chromecast or Apple TV which is another useful feature.

There are no settings or nothing that you can customize. But for me, the above features were enough to switch to SodaPlayer from VLC. It can definitely be made better, like it doesn’t support Media keys right now and there are other things too, but I think developers are doing excellent job in bettering the app. If you see the changelog, you’ll find that the updates are regular and there are lot of feature additions since it’s release, so kudos to the devs for the great work.

SodaPlayer is free for Mac and Windows. You can download it here.
