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."

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

I use QT-X for almost all of my needs (particularly the quick look component), using perian as a one-size-fits-all codec pack. Well, that and flip4mac. So I would personally disagree with you on that perian is "crap".

However, VLC is a great project and i would be very sad to see it go though!
