BORIS v.8 (based on the mpv media player)

The version >= 8 of BORIS (currently v. 8.20.3) is based on the mpv media player instead of the VLC media player for version < 8.

Many improvements were made:

The new version is totally compatible with the previous ones. The BORIS project file format was not changed.

See the User guide for details and the change log.

As I have no access to a physical Mac computer the v.8 is not able to run under MacOS at the moment.

The Mac OS users have various possibilities to run BORIS v. 8, see the BORIS for MacOS page.
