VLC is free - IINA is free - you can get a free version of mPlayer X . . . they all do the same thing without paying a $2 fee - tell me what convincing superior feature this application has?

I have tried most of known media players for OSX all of them has their own special features etc. but this makes the job. Just pick a movie file and believe me SplayerX will play it. You can add subtitles or change language (if within the movie) While supporting all kind of file formats it keeps it really simple. This is a very good alternative for those who looks for media player classic on OSX. Simplistic interface but plays any kind of file format. Like it.

Version 1.1.9

Does not play external .srt subtitles. So useless, if those are needed.
Version 1.1.8

Just as an aside, the links I posted in an earlier review still work, so if you want 'SPlayer for Free'.. you have SPlayerX-1097.zip dated to July 2013... which for OSS (Open Source Software) is pretty good. I don't see anything 'smarmy' about forking a project & then putting it up in the MAS for a couple bucks. The dev has posted & seems to update the free downloads, which is 'polite' for OSS. If anything you're just paying for the Dev's license for the year (remember, Apple takes 1/3). Even 'free' devs have to eat. If these guys are students more so.

The free version lacks the stability and updates that the app store version gets. Also if I'm not mistaken the free version is still not compatible with Mavericks and the app store version is. It's really sad that some people here don't bother to do a little research before accusing the developer of ripping MPlayerX when this is a FORKED project which perfectly fine and legal to do. MPlayerX has not been updated in over a year and may be a dead project. I'm glad SPlayerX picked up where MPlayerX has left off.

Money-grubbing scum selling a HALFASSED VERSION OF MPLAYERX, which is 10 times better and 100 times FREE-ER! For a laugh, go read their website (link above), which doesn't have a single true statement on it! The fact that the crApp Store carries this is the only proof you'll ever need that Apple has lost its way — the inevitable product of too much success mixed with greed and paternalistic megalomania. Shame.

No matter what the deal is with SPlayer, its developers are clowns, and you'd be smart to stay away.

I'm not sure what's going on, but it appears in the MAS for $1.99. However, their website (http://www.splayer.org/index.en.html) lists it as being open source (See the comparison chart). Clicking the download button downloads a Windows executable. There's also a large donate button at the top of their website. I'm not really sure what I'm paying for here. So far, however, alarm bells are ringing.
