Elmedia Player - VLC Media Player Alternative for Mac users

Olga Weis

VLC is a very popular free video player for Mac. It has been downloaded more than 1.1 billion times and you can add 134 million if you want to include OS X and other systems.

In the past, VLC stayed ahead of the competition and led the packs. It comes with features like the ability to play incomplete or damaged video, supports wide variety of audio and video formats, supports subtitles, etc. As of recently there is quite a competition in that division and the player sometimes cannot keep up with growing demand. As a result users are looking for a player like VLC, but better than VLC.
