I want to be able to start a video, 30 seconds in, using the terminal. I'd prefer to use IINA because it's awesome, but VLC would work as well.

  • I'm confused as to what you're asking. Do you mean start video playback in a separate window using a command from the terminal? – JMY1000 Dec 27 '17 at 20:21
/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC --start-time 30 your_video.mp4

See Documentation:Command line for other options.
