One thought on “VLC media player for Mac OS X 2.2.0”

  1. For me, the biggest value of VLC comes from one (seemingly) simple feature: OSX provides a “My Music” folder, yet every player (aside from VLC) I’ve found asks you to manually tell it your music directories. VLC knows from the start that your music is likely in this directory. You click My Music, and all the sub-folders are listed. Genius!

    My only complaint is that each folder within My Music doesn’t have an “expand” arrow next to it unless I’ve already clicked on that folder. I’d like to be able to double-click a folder without it autoplaying the contents, and expand/contract any one of them at will (to check the contents).
