VLC hit 3.0. With a possibly new icon? The pre-3 desktop app’s been a disaster lately. It crashes a third of the time and another third of the time it has an error report saying it crashed (when it hadn’t). The worst part is there isn’t an any more reliable 3rd party player on MacOS I’ve found. On the PC side, I’ve been using mpv. Which can be used on the mac (command line) but I don’t live in the terminal as much on the MacBook Air, regardless of having it plugged into a monitor.
