The mplayer might be a nice alternative on the Mac. However you have to 
compile it yourself, the binary version out there does not provide theora 
decoding afaik. I am not familiar with vp3/theora differences, so I can't say 
anything about vp3.

I use an Intel-based MacBookPro and compiling mplayer with ogg/theora/vorbis 
support was really easy for me.
