VLC Updates, Small Improvements All Around


VLC, our favourite open-source media player (and the most popular among readers) has pushed out an update to version 0.9.9—improving a few features, fixing bugs, and coming dangerously close to a full-fledged 1.0 release.

The major fixes include:

  • fullscreen behaviour on Windows with multiple screens,
  • workaround bug with libxml2 >=2.7.3,
  • video performance on Intel-based Macs,
  • various decoders updates on Windows.

So either hit up the the VLC homepage and grab the latest or check for updates on your current install for the latest and greatest.

  • I bought a new Mac Book last month and was told that I could use VLC to get around the region code issues with DVDs, however, this doesn’t actually work. Is there some add-on that I need – or is there better software for this??
