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.

I have used it for some years now but recently I purchases a macbook pro with OS X Mountain Lion and it doesnt seem to like the movies that end in HDTV.X264-DIMENSION.mkv for some reason

Pros
  • plays most movie formats
Cons
  • doesnt like .mkv
