    With VLC, you can pretty much read all unsupported QuickTime formats. Even by adding to it Perian, which provides the Apple player a sling load of additional video codecs, VLC keeps a step ahead, including being faster than the Apple player.
    But VLC is facing two problems that can be relatively easily solved. The first is the ability to stream a file to a Mac with VLC. By default, if you try the maneuver, you likely will get choppy playback of your file. Blame it on too low a cover defined by default in VLC. The solution, increase the size of the cache:
    open Preferences and navigate to VLC
    Preferences> Playback / Codecs> Access Modules> Files
    and edit the limit of 300 ms default defined cache. Here, the set limit is increased to 3000 ms, ample enough to ensure a smooth distribution.


    Second problem, perhaps more specific, the video codecs used by VLC:
    some need a facelift, especially when it comes to play HD video (720p and above) using the Matroska video container (.mkv Cursed!).
    The solution is on the side of another alternative reader, Mplayer, which provides a pack of optimized codecs. Visit this page, where you navigate to the Binary Codec Packages, available for PPC and Intel. With them playing a .mkv HD becomes much better.
