Switch: Video Players

If your like me you've got tons of videos encoded using god knows what. Unless you need QuickTime decoding (I'll cover why you might in the future) don't worry about codecs. Get a player that does the work for you.

The best are VLC and MPlayer OS X. I use MPlayer most of the time because I prefer it's keyboard shortcuts. You should have both just in case either one has a problem with a certain porn I mean comedy clip.

The only other one you should ever need is Windows Media Player which really sucks on OS X but gets the job done when the above two don't work on newer WMV vids. Microsoft should be embarrassed by WMP on the Mac and come out with a real application if and when they update it to version 10.
