VLC for Mac is being maintained. However the old Cocoa graphical interface of VLC, is not being maintained at this time.

The reason is that we are in the process of rewriting a new interface for VLC. Its codename is Lunettes.

Why a rewrite? This is something really easy to see. VLC for Mac is just not 'Mac' enough.

So far, we could name 3 reasons for that: Iso god for mac.

VLC for Mac must attract designers.

They can't easily give a refresh of the graphical interface.

Hence, we have decided to offer to designer the possibility to edit via a simple text file the look of VLC. Even Windows and Fullscreen Head-Up-Display can be changed using CSS.

VLC for Mac's interface code comes from the 2000s.

We need to refresh it.

We want to use VLCKit which is pure Cocoa, Objective-C 2.0 with bindings supports. This will help us concentrating on features.

As a positive side effects, we'll not use old non-64 bits compatible APIs.

VLC for Mac needs a good interface to be the best Video Player.

We want to make sure you'll get the best experience ever when watching your favorites TV shows or Movies using VLC.

  • For instance, if I am watching a TV show, and then quit Lunettes. At next launch Lunettes will offer you to go back to where you were.
  • Then, we added a better way to visualize the media discovery. This is a seldom known feature of VLC. Now, if you are on a local network that streams TV content (Freebox), Lunettes will automatically show them.
  • Then the famous playlist fades out: It is not visible by default, and you don't have to use it anymore.
  • Also in fullscreen you can now scroll through your playlists or TV channels.
  • And finally Lunettes is 64 bits.

For now, Lunettes is being hosted at:

That said, Lunettes is still under heavy development. And we hope to be able to release a test version soon.

We still want new developers to help us! Try to build VLC and Lunettes!

On Mac OS 9

Sorry, VLC will not work on OS 9, and probably never will. However, Mac OS X is supported.

Why VLC 0.8.1 doesn't work with Mac OS X 10.1.5?

Because we do use functions which aren't available in this version. The 0.7.0 release is the last one which supports this OS. Additionally, you shouldn't use it anymore, since 10.2 is much faster than 10.1.5 even on older Macs.

Which is the last release for 10.2.8?

That's VLC 0.8.4a. Note that it requires QuickTime 6.5.2, which is the latest QuickTime version for this Mac OS X release series. With prior versions, you'll get unexpected video output results.

Why doesn't VLC 0.8.6a work on 10.3, although you state it does?


First of all, make sure that you got 10.3.9 installed. Any earlier release, particularly 10.3.5 and below, doesn't support current versions of VLC. Additionally, while QuickTime 6.5.2 is strictly required, QuickTime 7.x is strongly recommended for performance and usability reasons.

Do current releases of VLC work on Mac OS 10.5 / Leopard?

Yes, VLC 0.8.6b runs without any problems out of the box. VLC's next major release 0.9.0 will add further support (most importantly the ability to compile VLC on Leopard) and may include some exclusive features.

VLC just bounces in the Dock and quits or just shows a 'VLC' menu and nothing else. What to do?

Please check whether you're using a VLC release which is able to run on your version of Mac OS X. If it fits, run the 'Remove Preferences' script provided on VLC's disk-image or delete both a folder called 'VLC' and a file called org.videolan.vlc.plist in ~/Library/Preferences (your personal preferences folder).

I am on Mac OS 9. Which version of VLC can I run?

From the download page notes: 'There is not, and there will never be, a version for Mac OS 9.'

How do you tell Apple's &[email protected]&$*&! DVDPlayer not to start automatically when you insert a DVD?

Get to Mac OS X global system preferences, open up the 'CDs & DVDs' section in the 'Hardware' category, add VLC to the list of apps next to 'When you insert a video DVD' and select it afterwards. That's it. Note that setting up VLC for Audio CD playback is possible this way as well.

Why won't VLC play DVDs from a region other than what my drive is set to?

Many people try to use VLC to play DVDs from regions their drive is not set to. However, the DVD drives on most new Macs have region lockout on the hardware level, so VLC will not necessarily be able to play discs from multiple regions. You may be able to play the disc by opening it as a Video_TS folder instead of a DVD, or by changing the method used by libdvdccss to decrypt DVDs (go to Preferences->All->Input/Codecs->Access Modules->DVD without menus->Method used by libdvdcss for decryption). If you play a lot of DVDs from different regions your best option is to buy a USB or Firewire external drive that you can set to the region you require.
