MplayerX leaving Mac App Store

technonono (2710275) writes "MplayerX, a popular and free video player app on Mac OSX, is now leaving Mac App Store "after arguing with Apple for three months". The developer claims that Apple's sandboxing policies would strip the app into "another lame Quicktime X" thus unacceptable. The app is releasing updates on its own site while users bought it from Mac App Store would most likely never know. The situation was "foretold" by Marco Arment, at least for one app."
