Meet Clapper: A Sleek Looking Linux Video Player for Minimalists

Love minimalism You8217ll love Clapper.

Clapper is a new video player for Linux. Actually it8217s more for GNOME than Linux.

Built on top of GNOME8217s JavaScript library and GTK4 toolkit it blends naturally in the GNOME desktop environment. It uses GStreamer for media backend and OpenGL for rendering.

I like application with minimalist approach. While VLC is the Swiss Knife of media players I prefer MPV player for the sleek minimal interface. And now I think I am going to stick with Clapper for sometime.

Clapper uses hardware acceleration by default. It supports Intel and AMD GPUs and works on both Xorg and Wayland.

Clapper doesn8217t use the traditional upper window bar. There are auto-hiding preference menu mode changer and window control buttons for you to access a few features. This gives it a sleek minimalist look.
