Customer:

I have just looked at the link to vicplayer you recommended and it indicates that it is suitable for mac versions 10.6 etc.

Customer:

But mine is 10.5.8. Will it work? The site offers downloads to two sites for 10.5 (not 10.5.8). One 24.2 meg and one 23.2 meg Are either of these relevant. I am confused as to what to download!

Customer:

S

CompExpert :

sorry for the confused, the one on the left side is for intel cpu and the right is for power pc cpu.

you imac should be a intel cpu, so download the one with 24.3mb for os 10.5
