The majority of Mac users quickly realize that the stock OS X video player, QuickTime Player, isn’t capable of handling many of the different video file types floating around online these days. However, while for a long time VLC player has been the standard go-to app to get an easy to use, all-in-one player that will be compatible with most file types, Movist provides an alternative that many Mac users might prefer.
The fact is VLC has pretty much been the same for quite a long time now and year after year seems to feel more and more outdated. While many long-time Mac users like the look and feel of VLC, Movist provides a fresh take that feels closer to a native Mac UI, making the process of using it as your default player for videos feel a little bit more at home to new users. With just as much functionality and preference options as VLC, as well as an open source project active on Google Code, this could be one video player that takes the crown VLC has held for so many years on the Mac.
