Videolan Vlc Media Player Mac

Posted onby admin

I've got a Mac keyboard with media keys. I use them to control Spotify, rather than iTunes.

The Dump raw input option allows you to save the input stream as it is read by VLC, without any processing. HTTP: Use the HTTP streaming method. Specify the IP address and TCP port number on which to listen. MMSH: This access method allows you to stream to Microsoft Windows Media Player. Specify the IP address and TCP port number on which to. VLC Media Player is available on several popular platforms. This free and awesome player is readily available for Apple computer users. The software is freely available for Mac OS X systems.
