Movist is the best video player so far on mac OS X. I have tried various kinds of video players that are available on mac. This one has the best performance and no bugs that are noticable. Lyrics are beautiful and easily managebale. Recommended.

Used to be great. (1.4.0)

Wish I never updated it. Used to play .mkv and .mp4 files with ease and now appears bricked pending the next update.

don’t buy this program. (1.4.0)

Pros: There's no pros. Cons: 1. Audio playback is missing a Normalization (dynamic range compressor) function. This means you’ll get extremly loud soundeffects while having quiet dialoges (or vice versa). 2. Sometimes, or rather often, subtitle disappears too quickly. I’ve tested with VLC with the same settings and never had problems. 3. Often the program slows down and have slow response whenever you press spacebar. Sometimes leads to overheat of the hardware. 4. Often subtitle doesn’t show upuntil you manually choose the right code among dozens. 5. Often automatically hides the screen right after you play the file. very annoying. 6. when minimizing the screen, the half top of the screen sticks outside the monitor. which means you won’t be able to move them around. 7. despite of numerous crashes and malfunction reports, the developer never tries to fix them. very rare updates. I wouldn’t use this program even if it were free. thank me and save your money from this.

I can’t run the application. (1.4.0)

I have just downloaded Movist and tried to play a movie. However, an error saying, “Movist is terminated unexpectedly” in Korean. So, I deledted and reintalled the app, but the same error keeps popping up.
