what other comparable video players are available?
VLC and mplayer
Quicktime + Perian + Flip4Mac is all you need
VLC seems to be have a lighter load when it comes to system resources, plus it is a lot faster when playing HD video files. At least that is my experience anyway.
Thank you. I usually have multiple formats on the go and sometimes Quicktime does not work.
I agree. Also sometimes QT will just not like a file and decide not to play the audio or video part, even though I have Perian installed; in those cases I just use VLC.
I like nice player, plays the same content as quicktime, only nicer
That awesome combo is what has been floating my boat for years.
Exactly. No reason that I can see to use anything else. With those plug-ins, QuickTime plays everything I've thrown at it.
Does Qt + Perian also play MPEG2 and VOB files?
Not sure, but they should I think. Perian handles almost anything though Qt is quite finicky about mpeg files.
Actually, I don't think it does. I think you have to buy some sort of MPEG2 plug-in from Apple. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.
