The VLC media player is probably best suited. It is Free It plays .wav (and almost 100% of anything else out there) It shows the Playback Speed settings. It allows speed setting as fine as 0.04 X increments.

I know this is an old question, but I was searching for this same answer, and found a great solution. Subliminal will allow you to set up a cron job, (or manually enter from CLI) whole directory trees, and download subtitles. You can also set it up as a post processor for SABNzbd or SickBeard or CouchPotato. It's working great for me.

Its more of an audio editor than a player, so might not be exactly what you want, but Fission from Rogue Amoeba is an excellent tool that displays the waveform of the loaded audio file. You can zoom in and out of portions of the audio and drag the play point to wherever you wish.

Removing DivX and DivXUpdate If you'd like to remove the DivX app along with its DivXUpdate, you need to uninstall the software. Uninstaller Uninstaller you can find in /Applications/DivX folder and run Uninstall DivX for Mac.app. Manual Removal If above folder and uninstaller doesn't exist, just remove: /Library/Application Support/DivX/DivXUpdate.app ...

This is deliberate from Apple and you will not be able to take screen shots using DVD player. You can either use VLC and then a screen shot program (Cmd-3 and Cmd-4 works for me), or transcode your DVD to a QuickTime movie using Handbrake (which may take too long for you to find it interesting). The latter will allow you to use QuickTime player which can ...

http://nulloy.com is a player that runs not only on OS X but also Linux and Windows. I'm the developer of it.

I found Subtitles recently. It looks nice and clean and seems to work quite well (I had lots of problems with Unicode support in subliminal).

I hope you have a secondary storage solution for FLAC audio files. I do :). I understand the allure of FLAC, I do everything I can to get my media in FLAC or at least some lossless format that I archive. There are a lot of benefits to keeping lossless files around, but playing them via any conventional player is (in my own opinion, of course) not one of them....

Step 1: Put the list of file types one per line in a text file at ~/types.txt. Here is an Example for all the VLC-handled video/audio types, in a pretty exhaustive list: .3gp .a52 .aac .aif .aifc .aiff .alac .asf .asf .au .avi .dts .dv .flac .flv .m2ts .m4a .m4b .mka .mkv .mov .mp2 .mp3 .mp4 .mpeg .mpg .nsc .nsv .nut .ogg .ogm .ra .ram .rm .rmbv .rv .tac ....

I, too, have made a free utility for this purpose. You can grab it fresh here: Sublime.

You can use -r to change the playback rate with afplay: afplay -r 1.1 file.wav

iOS doesn't utilize the local filesystems in the same way Android or most other Operating Systems (including OS X) do. As a result what you are looking for is not directly possible. However, if applications support the iOS extension system, which most modern apps do, you can get creative and get a similar functionality. Basically you would install one app ...

If you go to control & click 'use current frame as jacket picture'. Then click stop, your selected frame should come up - no matter where you stop the film from now on this still is what will show, that's what 'jacket picture' means. Take a screenshot of the Jacket Picture & it should come up on your desktop like normal!

This is more of a workaround, but you can open it with the standard QuickTime player and "trim", and it brings up the waveform of the track. Menu Edit > Trim (⌘ + T)

Let me see if I understand your concerns. You want an app with a single deck interface that takes up the entire screen, but all the DJ apps out there all use a split-screen dual-deck interface with no single deck option. Is that right? How about this? It's the only DJ app with a single deck interface I can find so far. Got cue points, loops, effect, the ...

I developed a free app to download subtitles on the Mac. You can download it from here. It downloads from OpenSubtitles. It is not a signed application (I'm not willing to pay Apple two times, as I develop for iPhone and not for Mac), so you have to allow it to run through System Preferences → Security & Privacy.

There's a setting in iTunes to remember position… Select all chapters, or books etc. Get Info Cmd ⌘ i > Options tab.

As @Redarm suggested, you should remove the folder found at ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX After that, quit and reopen QuickTime.

I wouldn‘t be to worried about the .dat files. They are only 64 bytes in size, so there can‘t really be much inside of them that could cause harm. Have you tried to open it with a text editor and see what’s inside? If you don‘t trust it, uninstall it and the .mkv apps should no longer have a default application to open with. Alternatively, just change the ...

Having the .dat filetype associated with your new media player is harmless. The examples you provided are simple ASCII text files containing the initial settings for automatic updating of your MS Aria account. There are likely many more files with the same extension on your hard drive, created by any number of software providers, representing for the most ...

I use XBMC and it works like a charm!

Vox (free with in-app purchase) A great simple application for music playing. I love this app. It's sooo simple to use and to use. It also integrates nicely with your iTunes library (if you so desire).

I had this same problem and had already installed perian as suggested above. This seems to be a frequent problem, I've had read the explanation but it's a long time ago so don't ask me anymore what the cause is. I fixed it with 'Niceplayer' this player can preform a pre buffer. So if you load in a large mkv file for example with nice player you'll see a ...

Yes, you need to find UPnP Controller for Mac. For example http://oss.linn.co.uk/trac/wiki/Kinsky is one of freeware. You can drag files to your UPnP device to play. Create playlist. Start streaming from UPnP server serources etc. Hope this helps!

Apartment Therapy has a decent roundup of non-iTunes music players for OS X. Unfortunately they don't seem to be updated terribly often, so you may not have much luck finding any with Retina support. iTunes' prevalence sort of crushes the rest of the market for music players, so the options are fairly limited. An alternative would be to use X Lossless ...

I use VLC. It's free, supports a long-list of file formats (including FLAC), has a decent interface and will allow you to create playlists. This is a list of currently supported file formats: VLC playback Features
