Mac OS X Late last night (CET), we reported on the story that the VLC project needed more developers for the Mac version of this popular video player, or else the Mac variant may disappear. Just about every website out there reported on this issue, but it turns out it all got a bit exaggerated (on the internet? Surely you jest...). We spoke to VLC developer Pierre d'Herbemont to clarify the issue, and they've also put up a wiki page about the so-called demise of the Mac version of VLC. He also detailed what, exactly, they meant by "Apple is blocking us".

Not Mac Enough

It doesn't look Mac enough? Just wondering, what does this mean? Will the Mac version look completely different from the other OS'es.

This is more or less a problem with multi platform development. Keep the look consequent with the OS it is running on, or keep the look of the program consequent among all versions.

I have used the program on Linux and Windows, and if I would ever use OSX, and run VLC, I would like to see the interface I am familiar with.
