    Hi All,

    Brand new to the forum and have a question that hopefully you can help me with.

    I have got some old mpgs on my mac that i wanted to rewatch. I tried downloading VLC player so that i can watch them. When i download it, it has put a icon on the dock, but it won't let me open it. It bounces once and then thats it. I have had this problem with other software that i have recently downloaded.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Have you tried downloading VLC from its website, instead of from the App Store?
