I read all the recent posts, but there is no solution for my problem. I'm using MPlayer Extended Rev8 on my G4 Powerbook with 1,67 Ghz. When I try to get subtitles displayed, I only get small barcode-like strips. Is it possible the required font is not installed on my system?

I guess that makes sense since there's no option in the Perian settings to select which h264 decoder to use.
There isn't one because it already does the right thing (and is always supposed to). I don't have access to a HW decoder equipped computer to test it, though.

Note that HW decoding may not support High Profile H.264, which covers a lot of x264 encodes.

How to delete unnecessary files on a Mac OS X? I recently just bought a Mac Mini and got Mac OS X 10.5.6 -- The newest version. But I bought it from someone used and it still has their files on it... I dont know where they are at all! I've tried looking in tonnes of folders but I cant find them. Is there anyway to find these files? Using a program or what?

Note that the UTW fansub for Fate Zero has problems with Perian/Quicktime, but Perian/Quicktime seems to give better results than VLC, DivX Player, and MPlayer for OS X.

Umm I'm at a loss, so I guess I'll ask here. What player would you recommend to have both 10-bit and ordered chapters support on OSX (Snow Leopard 10.6.8)?

You can try my mplayer2 builds here: http://code.google.com/p/mplayerosx-builds/, I provide both binaries for the mplayerosx extended gui and a standalone mplayer2 application that might appeal more to power users.

VLC 2.0 released, I'm at work so there's not much I can do, but has anyone tried it yet?

Still terrible?

Thanks for pointing this out. I just tried it and it looks like VLC might be my main program again, since I'm not crazy about Perian/Quicktime.

VLC 2.0 looks decent to watch anime fansubs. I still prefer mplayer2 without gui though, way more advanced, fast and customizable.

I've been trying VLC these days, and I like MPlayer Extended + pigoz superbinary a lot more, maybe because I can just skip stuff with the arrows (I know I could change this on VLC as well).

Edit: I was just reading about mplayer2, seems a bit complicated/non-friendly...

VLC 2.0 seems to be doing much better than version 1 when it comes to some of the more demanding files. I've started to use it randomly, whereas I had previously switched over to mplayer OSX extended after VLC choked on some more complicated files. If anything, VLC 2.0 has handled certain files better than mplayer OSX extended.

The only bad thing about upgrading at the moment is that Handbrake doesn't recognize VLC 2.0. For the DVD encoders who use Handbrake on the DVD directly, that can be a problem. Not sure when Handbrake is going to update to make use of the new VLC.

From their forums:

HandBrake uses libdvdcss from VLC, for DVD decryption.
VLC 2.0 will not include it in a way that can be used by HandBrake.

It looks like HandBrake will support having libdvdcss installed in /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib, and that's it.
Fortunately the VLC folks were nice enough to create a libdvdcss .pkg installer package for us.

0.9.6 will feature a new warning which should mention libdvdcss rather than VLC.
Or a more primitive solution is to have 2 versions of VLC on your mac,the old one in "applications" so handbrake can access it and the new one stored someplace else for your playback needs.

Or you could just keep on using mplayer

Was just given a mac mini at the office so will be trying out vlc 2.0 for mac. Previous version seemed only ok ... but it is nice to see an upgrade for vlc to begin with.

Yep, not for the average user.

The embarrassing thing is that at the moment both VLC and mplayer2 using GUI are not using the correct coefficients for color output so the video they display is actually wrong.

It's been a few weeks, and I'm very impressed with VLC so far. There were a few videos that would cause mplayer OSX extended to lag and skip, yet VLC played them without a problem. Looks like it's going back to being my default MKV player.
