    Perian or use VLC Player or Movist.

    simsaladimbama : hi there thanks for the comment, i'm a lil scared of using 3rd party applications unless i used them before or something so i'll like to ask what do you think of perian? it seems like quite a number of mac users are actually using perian :)


    stridemat : alright got it :) thanks a lot


    iisforiphone : between perian and mplayerx which is better? have you used perian before? :)

    a little question to all, have you guys heard of DivX player?

    I've used all of the above and for me MPlayerX is the best, download from the App Store. I've never had one file that hasn't played.
