An icon will now appear on your Desktop, right beside your drive(s). Open it and drag the VLC application from the resulting window to the place where you want to install it.

Considering the amount of differences between Mac OS 9 and modern systems, it would require a tremendous effort to port VLC.

Hold your mouse still on top of an option for just over a second and a ToolTip will come up explaining what the option does. Be very careful with the Advanced options. Changing an option in the wrong value (usually selecting a module by hand instead of letting it be selected automatically) can cause VLC to no longer start. In this case you will need to remove the preference files located in your HOME -> Library -> Preferences -> VLC.\

\f0\b0 \ulnone Look at the Audio->Device menuitem. You can set this option permanently by going into the Preferences and choosing Modules -> audio output -> coreaudio -> audio device (You will need to choose "Show Advanced options" first).\
\f0\b0 \cf0 \ulnone Look at the Audio->Audio Device menuitem.\
- You should change your speakerlayout in the Audio Midi Setup utility. The program is located in /Applications/Utilities.\
Select your audio device in "Properties For:", then click the "Configure Speakers" button. Choose "Multichannel". Even if these settings are correct, you should change them and click "Apply", then change them back and again click "Apply". This is important, otherwise VLC cannot reliably detect which speakers are connected.\
- Make sure your device surround configuration is not set to emulate surround output. M-Audio for instance defaults to using SRS surround sound emulation in multichannel setups. You should change this to "None/OpenAL".\
- We are in a transitional phase for our Mac OS X audio system. Therefore it is currently not possible to use Digital audio without changing a Preferences setting. The setting is in Audio->Output modules. Change this from default to "CoreAudio output". This is the module that was also used in previous versions of VLC. It has several issues with Analog audio, but it also supports Digital audio, which the new module does not yet support. You should ONLY use this module for Digital output.\
