Terrible it can't stream....needs to load entire .mkv from network before it plays. Just stick to VLC otherwise you'll wait an enternity to play a bluray rip mkv file.


Posted January 14, 2010 by . Tool version 1.2 using OS MacOSX
Ease of use 8 of 10 Functionality 5 of 10 Value for money 5 of 10 Overall score 4 of 10


to add:

Also handy for apps such as Toast Titaniumto be able to transcode
flv, avi, mkv, and ogm into a DVD as well, and to enable Mpeg Streamclip
to open .flv files to edit.

If you watch video on a Mac, get this FREE codec for the mac.
mkv, ogm, xvid, divx, flv......the missing link for video on the mac.
Combine this with WMV Player from flip4mac, and you can watch anhything
without going into VLC, natively in Quicktime Player.
