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."

VLC used to be essential. Recently I have experienced two things that keep it from being so.
1. The last couple of versions of OS X VLC are not stable. 2. Quicktime now supports most of the codecs that made me rely on VLC in the past.

VLC is still essential on linux, but OS X has moved on and it is no longer a must-have app.
