I am an engineer in Tokyo JAPAN.
What do you use the viewer of the video for? I am using mpv and DaVinci Resolve when I want to check color accurately. It is macOS.
I liked it because mpv has good color reproducibility, but I can not display time code and metadata. This point is very disappointing. So I decided to create my own easy-to-use video viewer.
Qlip is a compact viewer that incorporates the functions I want. If you are interested please try using. It can be used for free for a long time. Also, we do not display any advertisements. It is available in macOS 10.13 or later.
the absolute best professional video player on mac is SWITCH (telestream) for 10$
it even supports apple's color sync which only apple software uses.
resolve is not color-accurate on an uncalibrated system, the viewer only emulates values, the real signal would only be sent via decklink hardware. you should also disable color sync if you want the raw color values of a video on a retina display!
quicktime is the most accurate out-of-the-box (with color sync) for free.
if you follow this, you can use anything – or have your monitor calibrated professionally.
