MPlayerX vs Movist

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!


Which one do you think is better? (I'm running Mavericks BTW)


Yes, I know about VLC, but I don't like it much. It's pretty ugly to me. Perian no longer works with 10.9


MPlayerX is free and Movist costs like 5$



Thanks!  :)

VLC's "Dark" theme makes it look really sleek. Much the same as MPlayerX. Which IMHO, is a very close 2nd place. VLC seems to be the best all-rounder particularly for compatibility. To be honest though, as long as you aren't straying too far into the realms of weird filetypes and just playing things like 

avi, mp4, m4v, mpeg, mkv, flv, wmv, etc... then they're all good :) I wouldn't advise paying though... Try VLC dark theme, or go MPlayer X

I prefer Movist over MplayerX and both over VLC. Movist has playlist MplayerX doesn't. They both will play files automatically in same folder if they are sequential.
