Download VLC, don't use this.

Even if the dev paid me $5 to use this, I'd turn down the offer. It's crap, ugly, doesn't work well.

It's good to see this garbage app where it belongs — on the corporate dung heap known as the App Store.

I tried it, and it's laughable.

I do not like an idea to pay almost 5 bucks for this app. The developers gave us nothing special to switch from VLC to Meteoroid.

obviously vlc is all any mac users needs to play anything and for free,but we must admit this app contains something nO quicktime player pro or not has ever.. a PLAYLIST FEATURE! yes there is a few apps that add a playlist to quicktime but they too aren't free and/or don't work well or need to be running in conjunction with quickitme to work.

If you do your own homework you'll find that there are several freeware movie players that support playlists, and they're much higher quality than Meteorite. In fact, I'll bet most people who have at least one movie player in their Apps folder other than VLC already have one.

Actually Acuraice, it's obvious that Formica was addressing your unclear and rather redundant statement that "obviously vlc is all any mac users needs to play anything and for free,but we must admit this app contains something nO quicktime player pro or not has ever.. a PLAYLIST FEATURE! yes there is a few apps that add a playlist to quicktime but they too aren't free and/or don't work well or need to be running in conjunction with quickitme to work."

Most folks would forgive Formica for either misunderstanding your meaning (given its opacity) or addressing a more salient issue — Formica was doing you a favor by admitting that most of us use other free, superior, non-QuickTime movie players, especially since the introduction of the utterly shitty QuickTime X. S/he probably didn't name those other movie players for you because, like me, s/he doesn't approve of people who make no effort to learn things for themselves and so have MacUpdate scores of -130 or lower. If you weren't that sort of person, you'd know that those wanting to watch movies in QuickTime using playlists do so via iTunes. Duh.

Nevertheless, there are a few high quality, non-QuickTime, free apps that offer a playlist feature, though most of them require users to purposely select it from the File or Window menu so it doesn't annoy the great majority of us who aren't scrobbling through 35 porn files or simply find them annoying. They are (in no particular order, and possibly omitting some): MPlayer OSX Extended, MPlayer OSX, the pre-1.0 version of Movist, and even GOM Player. There's also SimplePlayer, which can remux difficult video files into a less troublesome container, but that fabulous and ill-fated app is reliant on QTKit. Unfortunately for you, MPlayerX does not have a playlist, though I wouldn't use its playlist even if it had one. And, though your comments clearly indicate that you're ignorant of this too, VLC has had a playlist feature for many years.

One last thing: Don't be so thin-skinned, asshole.

No serious Mac user would waste any money on this application.

There are plenty of free applications.

Absolutely pathetic.

Horrible looking app. Poorly designed and implemented. Over-priced and a greedy developer.

For free there are far better alternatives or pay for QuickTime Pro and get the real thing instead of this lame rip off!
