If it doesn't play in QuickTime, then you need VLC for Mac, the free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework.

If it doesn’t play in QuickTime and/or iTunes, then you need VLC for Mac, which plays just about any video or audio codec you can throw at it — VLC for Mac is the free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework.

• VLC Media Player 2.0.7 (Download Intel 64-bit, Download PPC, etc)
— Fix track selection for PowerPC machines
— Fix audio decoding for WMA Pro, MPEG 4 ALS, APE, MLP and ADPCM-IMA4
— Fix audio encoding for MP3 and AAC
— Numerous translations updates and new Azerbaijani, Kirgyz, Oriya translations
— A small update that fixes some regressions of the 2.0.x branch of VLC
— Closes a couple of security issues and fixes regression in our ActiveX plugin for Internet Explorer

VideoLAN is one of the very few developers still delivering PPC fixes and features.

VLC Media Player is said to be optimized OpenCL. However, as we saw with HandBrake 0.9.9, OpenCL is supported on the PC side, but not Mac. So, is VLC for Mac OpenCL optimized?
