    Not good, playback is jumpy with this for me, yet with the old version it's fine :confused: :rolleyes:

    Rev A iMac G5 20" (1.8GHz). As I say, with the "old" MPlayer it's fine.

    The audio went freakishly bad on the first file I played (all distorted) but a second attempt worked - strange. Nothing else to note so far...

    Just crashes for me, my custom compiled version works a lot better then the official OS X versions anyway.

    Works fine for me.

    Top Gear avi's as wel as a 1080i HD recording of Jean Michel Jarre work well (without the Dolby 5.1). ;)
    Before the Jean Michel Jarre audio was freakish.

    I wonder if VLC will come up with an update?

    I certainly hope so. I personally like VLC better than MPlayer for quality and framerate reasons, but in Tiger it has sooo many bugs. Its almost unusable.

    Anyone else's controls weird? I have to go back to the application just to go in or out of fullscreen. That's not right. Why does it launch a new application for a video?

    Works for me. I reccomend staying with the old version untill a more final release. Good to see it's still in development though.

    You have to click on the control window to go fullscreen in this version.
