    Hey guys ... just got my first mac and I'm trying to find a Media Player that lets me click to pause (i.e. click the actual video area in order to pause).

    I've tried VLC and mPlayerX and both of them don't allow you to click to pause. Anything out there that has this functionality?

    Every media player that plays in full screen allows you to click the "Pause" button that appears on screen when you move the mouse.

    both vlc and mplayerx allow you to click the pause button on screen to pause. another option is just press the space bar to pause. that's quicker than a mouse click, too. :)

    I think OP is asking for an app that would pause with a simple click anywhere on the screen.

    I am not aware of an app that does this, but like others mentioned most video players will pause if you tap the space bar.
