Simply the best multi-format media player

Notes

Note that versions of VLC media player compatible with Mac OS X 10.1 to 10.6 are available from the developer site. The main download link here is version 2 for the 64 bit Intel version compatible with OS X 10.5 and above. However, you can find VLC Player for OS X 10.4.11 Intel Macs here. There is not, and there will never be, a version of VLC media player for Mac OS 9 say the developers.

Pros
  • Free to use
  • Plays almost anything
  • Great hotkey support
  • Lightweight
  • Integration with web channel streaming services
  • Much slicker interface in version 2
  • More format support in version 2
  • Plays BluRay and HD
Cons
  • Basic interface

Simple, fast and powerful media player.

VLC no longer works on my Mac. All of a sudden files that used to play without problem no longer play. The advice to not upgrade is sound - it will suck if you do

Pros
Cons
