    Do you have the latest version of VLC? They released a patched version 0.8.6a to fix all the problems people had with 0.8.6.

    MPlayer OS X could also be worth a look although personally I prefer VLC.

    You could also install Perian which is an all in 1 codec pack for Quicktime. I have Perian, AC3, and Flip4Mac installed here for QT and that seems to handle nearly everything VLC can.

    Either the universal, which is bigger, or Intel. Either will work.

    Well then I second Mplayer. It works like a bomb and even plays awkward codecs sometimes found in limewire acquired movies.

    VLC/Mplayer are pretty much only choice,
    Mplayer has some trouble tracing the progress in WMV, if u jump seek to fas, it might just close
    VLC, however, will have some mask when jump seeking.

    well, nothin is perfect.
