    Flip4Mac. It's a plugin that runs everything in QuickTime.

    It's all I need.

    I use Quicktime with perian installed so I can play all those formats like avi and the sort. I used to use VLC until I found perian.

    Perian + Flip4Mac can handle just about anything I can throw at it. There have been one or two (possibly partially corrupt) files that I have had to use Videolan Client for.

    That's exactly the way it went down for me, and I also use Flip4Mac for WMVs.

    Quicktime 7.2 with Full Screen and Perian for video and iTunes for Music, see [guide]Watching AVI Movies in Mac OS X[/guide] for more details.

    Good Lord....the things you learn coming here.

    I have been using VLC and the old, clunky windows media viewer. Now I can use QT instead and bypass those other programs.

    I'll still use VLC to view my archived DVDs. Mac's DVD player is still clunky (hope it improves in Leopard), and the Flip4Mac Drive In Beta crashes my system every time I use it.

    QT + Perian + Flip4Mac. I haven't even got other players installed anymore.
