It seemed that my MAC installation couldn.t play any flv file, and also can’t play other file with subtitle. Like usual, video player needs right codec to be able to play some file (specific ext), in windows we can download K-lite codec pack or another package. In MAC installation, because i am not really MAC user, i got confused for a while finding the right program to play flv file.
1. Perian : it is opensource quicktime component that enable QuickTime to play some video format which is not supported by default.
2. Qt Player : Update version of Quicktime player can be used to make sure that you have installed the latest version which is in better state than version before.
3. XBMC : Free and opensource media player developed by XBMC foundation, it is similiar with Windows media center which offers us, complete package of media player. After installing this software i can play flv file, and other format nicely. It can also play subtitle. Other than the fact that this player seems needs high amount of RAM when active, it serves us complete package of media player we need.
4. VLC : VLC player is also free player, it usually work in windows, but in my MAC installation it didn’t work well and couldn’t perform what i need.
From some software i tried above, I recommend you to install and use XBMC, since it doesn’t need any plug-in, or any update before we use it. 🙂
