Mac OS X MacNN has just published an important news item regarding the future of the Mac OS X version of the VLC mdia player. According to VLC's developers, the Mac version is at risk of being discontinued due to a lack of developers. Update: The VLC developers claim that Apple is working against them: "Apple doesn't want us on the Mac platform and is blocking us a lot, and refuses to explain why."

Why?

I find intriguing that VLC seems to attract only unix developers. A while ago the windows port was at risk because the number of contributors had dropped down to zero, now the Mac port is at risk for the same reason.

Incidentally, the Windows port is the most popular, and the Mac port is almost crucial for the Mac platform (those "codec packs" are crap).

Maybe someone should donate a Mac to the current devs (not a Windows box, I wish that on no one). ;)
