    Hey guys, just trying to get a feel for MPlayer on OS X... good, bad or ugly?

    I've been using it with no problems. It handled subtitles on a movie I was watching a lot better than vlc or quicktimeplayerX. It's free so give it a try.

    Good, IME. It's what I use for any movie Quicktime doesn't take natively. Mostly mkv's. I prefer it to VLC.

    I used to use MPlayer OS X Extended, but since MPlayerX showed up on the App Store, I've been using that.

    Yup, just as I thought... even on Linux, I've found MPlayer to be more robust than VLC.

    Thanks for the replies!

    I wish "pinch to zoom" were used for Full Screen (instead of double clicking). Making the window "almost full-screen" doesn't make make any sense to me, I just don't see any practical use for it.

    Will mplayer resync audio and video like VLC can? Occasionally I'll download a movie file that was improperly encoded and the sound/video are out of whack by up to 3 seconds.

    I like how VLC lets you bring things back in sync.

    yes. in the advanced settings you can set delay to sync audio/video.

    but now i have a huge problem with wmv files, every one of them get out of sync after few minutes of playing. vlc play these files flawless.
