The followings are the regular steps to uninstall an app from Mac operating system.

This drag-to-delete method works in all versions of Mac OS X. Most apps can be smoothly uninstalled in that way, but it is not applicable to built-in Mac apps.

Additionally, you can take the following ways to delete this app:

  • 1) Right click on Mac Media Player and click Move to Trash.

If you cannot move an app to the Trash (or empty the Trash), reboot your Mac to try again (or hold the Option key as you choose Empty Trash from the Finder menu).

Warning: Emptying the Trash will instantly remove Mac Media Player alone with other files you’ve thrown into the Trash, and this act is irrevocable. So make sure you haven’t mistakenly delete anything before performing this act. Any time you change your mind before emptying the Trash, you can restore the deleted files or apps by right-clicking on the item in the Trash and choosing the Put Back option.

Way 2: delete Mac Media Player from Launchpad

  • Open Launchpad, and input Mac Media Player in the search box on the top.
  • Click and hold Mac Media Player icon with your mouse until it starts to wiggle.
  • Click the “X” icon that appears on the left upper corner of Mac Media Player.

If you install Mac Media Player through the App Store, and your system is OS X lion or later, you can take this approach to uninstall it. Once you click the X icon, the uninstall will be handled instantly, and there is no need to empty the Trash afterwards.

Extra Steps: Remove Mac Media Player Remnants from System

Once installed, Mac Media Player creates many files (preference settings, caches, plugins, etc) and those components won’t be automatically deleted after you perform the standard uninstall. To free up the space occupied by app remnants, it is necessary to conduct a thorough removal. This task requires certain skill and knowledge, and it might be risk-taking too (mistakenly deleting other app files may cause those apps stop working properly). So, make sure to perform the deletion with certain caution.

  • Open the Finder, click Go in the Menu bar, and select the option Go to Folder…


  • Type the path of the current user’s Library Folder: /Library, and then hit Enter key.

  • Right click the matched files or folders, and select Move to Trash option.
