Growing frustrated with VLC media player, and its list of what some may call eccentricities (and what I call flaws), I decided to try the other player for Matroska for Mac, MPlayer. Specifically, the handling of embedded softsubs in mkv files has been a perpetual woe for my Mac experience, although I love the machine itself. I had tried MPlayer for Windows years ago (before I discovered CCCP) and found it wanting in the user-friendlyness department, as most things that were designed for Linux seem to be. However, the passage of time and the desperate straights that my watching has found itself in has meant a reappraisal of previous assumptions. I was optimistic when I saw that MPlayer was looking at 1.0 Release Candidates, which for me means that the software is reaching a milestone in the developers vision.
