Citra Not Opening On Mac

The app isn’t opening after the new update, only the terminal is opening but the app isn’t. This was unexpected as I had carried out all updates of my software and the app as required.

Operating System: macOS Mojave version 10.4.3
CPU: 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 6000 MHz DDR3
Citra Version (found in title bar): Unable to open app so can’t see (newest update though)
Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):

What does the brew application do, though?

its a package manager, it installs software, what you actually want to install is the ffmpeg library, using brew is the easiest way to install ffmpeg.
