Simply the best multi-format media player

Nick Mead


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.

"Must have application!"

The idea of creating an application capable to play almost all kinds of video files is great. VLC media player is the universal tool that handles all types of media files. I have tried to play some videos on my mac but the format was not compatible with default quick time player. VLC was the solution. I was surprised that this app is also compatible with Windows OS. It has user friendly interface and resembles iTunes. Drag and drop feature is great. If you wish to watch film or video file simply drag the video file into the application window. VLC offers lot of customization options for advanced users. Within preferences window you can manage interface, video, audio and hotkeys. Application designers provided multilingual user interface. It makes it more and more popular among users worldwide. I would also mention hotkeys feature. I could set up my own shortcuts associated with different actions. So far I did not find any drawbacks.

  • user friendly interface
  • well designed
  • great hotkeys feature
