How to use VLC for Mac OS X
Devices and Mac OS X version
VLC media player requires Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later. It runs on any 64bit Intel-based Mac. Previous devices are supported by older releases.
Note that the first generation of Intel-based Macs equipped with Core Solo or Core Duo processors is no longer supported. Please use version 2.0.10 linked below.
Older versions of Mac OS X and VLC media player
We provide older releases for users who wish to deploy our software on legacy releases of Mac OS X. You can find recommendations for the respective operating system version below. Note that support ended for all releases listed below and hence they won’t receive any further updates.
If you need help in finding the correct package matching your Mac’s processor architecture.
1. Download VLCplayer for Mac
2. Double click VLC icon
3. Drag VLC app into your applications folder
4. Drag any media file into VLCplayer icon in the dock (that’s the row of pop up icons at the bottom of your mac when you mouse over)
Firstly, download VLC Media Player and install it on your computer correctly.
Secondly, click “File”, then “Open” from the top navigation menu of the player. Lead the movie file in the player to open. Click “OK” to open the file.
Thirdly, the movie should begin playing immediately. If the movie does not begin to play, the file may be corrupted or may contain an error.
Finally, for full screen viewing, right-click on the player window and select “Full Screen Mode” from the content menu.
VLC Media Player also allows you to change the interface style by downloading and installing new skins. There are hundreds of skins and themes available for the VLC media player.
