    Reposting this here:

    I am a goldmember to all of VSO products.

    But there is that player which is free for everyone.

    It's the only player that plays Avid .mov's without a hitch.

    Even DNxHD .mov's!

    I am really impressed by that as the only thing played mov's correctly was QT player.

    VSO Player.

    THis is beta but is working fine.

    The New VLC Player 2.0.0 twoflower is ON.

    Without installing ANY codec (in case anyone will rush to accuse me again),

    it seems more powerful than ever. And it's FREE.

    Read for yourself.

    P.S. It seems a wonderful upadate over anything else.

    It plays back Avid DV and any QT files amazingly fast on i5/i7.

    This wasn't the case before.
