    I can't say I know lots about it but I'm fairly sure colour profiles are enacted at an OS level and therefore would be reflected in all apps.

    ColorSync was introduced in 1993 as an enhancement to System 7.1. It is available to all developers, but not all developers use it.

    You could try http://mpv.io.

    If it doesn't use Color Profiles by default, you may be able to configure it to use it.

    EDIT: http://mpv.io/manual/stable/

    Is that what you are looking for?

    Sorry to hear that!

    Yeah, it's not your average media player like VLC. However, it's actually not that bad once you learn it. It's by far the best media player I have ever used.

    All options are entered in a file (~/.config/mpv/mpv.conf) and all available options can be found in the manual I linked. They can also be entered from the Terminal while opening a media file with mpv.
