    Quicktime plays .mov files itself. If you need one player to do it all, MPlayerX will fit the bill. I recommend this over and above VLC in any case.
    MPlayerX

    EDIT: BTW... VLC does play .mov files also. At least it should. I have no trouble doing so. Just double-checked on myself.

    Then there's something wrong with that video. The .mov format is the one that Quicktime natively handles. There is no way Quicktime can't play it unless there is something wrong with it.

    Nonsense. Quicktime is Apple's software and it comes with Yosemite. I'm running Yosemite and can personally assure you that both Quicktime Player and the "legacy" Quicktime Player 7 work just fine. So can everyone else in these forums.

    The only reported issues with Mavericks and Yosemite Quicktime is Apple switched video engines to the one they use in IOS. That broke some codecs that did FLV and some other strange formats, but NOT MOV. Can you show us a report that playing MOV is broken on QT in Yosemite?


    BTW, for the FLV and other formats that no longer work in QT, go to Apples site and get Quick Time 7. With that installed you can find and download the good old Swiss Army Knife of Video Codecs, Perian! Then Quick Time 7 will play them all.

    Either that or VLC which plays them without any help!

    Whaaaa??? I read up on this and am very disappointed here. I've never encountered any adware, but I've been using this for a few years now, long before they started bundling adware in, apparently. This is really really disappointing because it's a GREAT player. VLC freezes up when trying to play videos with styled subtitles but MPlayerX handles them like a champ.

    As an aside... I've recently started using ClamXav to monitor my downloads folder just for kicks... it promptly notified me that there was adware here. OS X didn't stop me from running the installer, which I ran because from what I read, you have the option to not install the adware component. I didn't get that option. At all. (EDIT: and AdWare Medic didn't find anything afterwards. I wonder if the developer reconsidered this move?)

    EDIT 2: I've read over the developer's blog and I think the adware component has actually not yet been implemented. He refers to updates to improve compatibility with Yosemite, but the last version was released in January 2014, long before Yosemite was released. It sounds like it's coming in the next version... FYI.

    I read that note from Thomas a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure it is the devs of MplayerX, although it could be. Would def suggest getting it direct from them, not via a 3rd party site.

    There are some video sites out there where you can get (shall we say less than legal) copies of commercial movies that have a copy of MPlayerX that rotates with a couple of other players in one of those popup windows saying you need to upgrade your video player they push on their users. I'd guess those sites could very well be loading those apps with their own little nasties.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    The developer specifically mentions in his blog that he was going to monetize this to "be motivated" and knew this was going to be controversial

    Ahh... this makes sense now. I've found unwanted downloads in my Downloads folder a couple times and MPlayerX was in them. I assumed it was malware posing as MPlayerX and immediately deleted it, but now you have me thinking that this is the adware version. The installer I got from the link on the developer's site didn't have any adware in it, but that comes from Sourceforge and I wonder if bundling adware is against their rules.

    Or not... just did a quick search and apparently quite a bit of software coming from Sourceforge is bundled with adware. Hmm. Well, time to find a new media player. VLC is just too buggy for me (seizes up completely with styled subtitles, which I find really odd that they haven't addressed yet).
