"Amazing video player for Mac OS X"

October 04, 2010  |  By benoitr007

 |  Version: MPlayer OSX Extended rev13

Pros

- Plays almost every format very well
- Very fast
- Free!

Cons

I haven't used it long enough to find anything that I don't like.

Summary

I downloaded this program to play an MKV video on my Mac. It worked even better than expected, with no lag at all and the audio perfectly synchronized. Excellent software!

"Crashfest"

August 17, 2010  |  By horstel--2008

 |  Version: MPlayer OSX Extended rev13

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It's doing what it always did, with a few exceptions.
Mplayer no longer plays mpgs, mp4s and such.
It just crashes when you forward, actually can't even be quit without a restart.

So the player I got years ago to get around the limitations of quicktime player, doesn't play quicktime files anymore.

"Good solid media player"

July 13, 2010  |  By tryme

 |  Version: MPlayer OSX Extended rev13

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As with a previous reviewer, my primary media app is QuicktimeX with Perian installed. The backup app until 18 months or so ago used to be VLC, when MPlayer OSX Extended came out I switched and have never looked back. It looks and works better as a Mac app, has opened everything thrown at it and has been solid.

The one gripe I had about it was that unlike other Mac media apps, hitting esc in full screen mode would close the media file instead of switching it to windowed mode. I am very happy that annoying anomaly has been fixed in this revision. The new look is very sleek and elegant as you would expect from a Mac app - I am really impressed.

Congratulations and thank you to the developer for such a great app, I haven't opened VLC in quite some time, I will now have it stop taking up drive space as there is no reason to use it while I have MPlayer OSX Extended.

"An amazing OSX player that can play anything."

March 08, 2010  |  By icelizzard

 |  Version: MPlayer OSX Extended rev13

Pros

? Can play any video stream/container format I have thrown at it
? Can play any audio format I have tried
? Full support for internal/external subs (including Advanced SubStation Alpha)
? Plays 720p h264 videos with no dropped frames

Cons

? Still a few minor kinks to work out like going fullscreen in wrong "Space" sometimes
? Takes a long time to start playing videos shared over a LAN
? Playlist feature doesn't behave as expected (but who uses that anyway)

Summary

This really is the king of a media players on the OS X Platform. In fact, I just might like it better than Media Player Classic, my favorite player for Windows. MP OSX Extended plays everything I throw at it seamlessly with no hiccups, no audio/video desynchronization, and no dropped frames. Better yet, my MacBook Pro doesn't turn into a hotplate capable of searing flesh ? an impressive feat for 720p h264 video.

Besides just being able to play video streams amazingly well, it also supports all those nice features that are included in standards, such as chapters for .mp4, that most players fail to take advantage of. It also supports multiple video, audio, and subtitle streams and *gasp* even lets you select the one you want. Also, as of revision 13, It was given a new skin so it looks better than any player with the exception of Quicktime X. (As I am writing this, the picture above doesn't match what it looks like now)

With out a doubt, this is the best media player you can get for OSX. If you have an Intel Mac running 10.5 or later, download it. You'll wonder how you got by without it.

Note: After installing, go to "Preferences >> General" and make sure "Automatically check for new updates" is selected. Every update just keeps making MP OSX Extended better and better.

"a step backwards"

February 04, 2010  |  By Rufus J

 |  Version: MPlayer OSX Extended rev13

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Usability has taken a step backwards in my opinion. I do not like the new interface, and not simply talking about aesthetics. The time marker is very difficult to see. Additionally, and for me a giant annoyance is that if the displat window is closed, dragging a new vid file into the doc icon will not open the file in a new window as it always has done in the past. Don't find any noticeable improvement to offset these new negative features.

"Very good!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Really nice interface-rework in this version, great! Like it. Still the onscreen-display in fullscreen-mode cold need some rework, looks a bit clumsy compared to VLC or Quick Time, for example
