Softonic review

Free media player for almost any format

MPlayerX (not to be confused with MPlayerOSX) is a free and simple media player.

Similar in flexibility to VLC Media Player, MPlayerX can play almost any format of file or stream, is very lightweight on resources and easy to use. MPlayerX has been designed specifically with Macs in mind and supports Apple Remotes, full screen mode, changing of subtitle size and it picks up from the last point you stopped the video.

The great thing about MPlayerX is that, like VLC Media Player, it plays absolutely everything you throw at it. Many users find that if they can't play something on the former then MPlayerX can and vice versa. There's very little to fault it in that respect although it doesn't feature integrated subtitled searching like Lunettes and doesn't have channel integration like VLCPlayer.

Overall though, MPlayerX is an incredibly useful and powerful media player for Macs.

    Codec package anyone!?.
    When I first loaded it last week, it worked great. Now, it seems like it's a craps shoot as to whether or not it'll open anything. I don't know what to think, to be honest.Should I be looking for MPlayerX friendly code More
