    I checked out versiontracker tonight and saw that there's been an update to VideoLan Client. I searched the forums and I couldn't find a thread so I decided to post it. If there is a thread already about it, sorry.

    Here's a quick rundown on the new version:

    VLC 0.5.1a fixes a major bug where English systems only showed up Japanese menus. It also fixes a segfault in the Preferences panel. Other VLC 0.5.1 features :
    Core support: audio volume can now be changed at any time, even when no file is playing
    Input access: various minor fixes on the network inputs, fixed some weird URL parsing problems (/Volumes/toto:tata/harry@coin.mpg), VCD: fixed track number and chapter indexing
    Input demux: fixed a bad initialization in the mp4 plug-in, new --buggy-psi option for TS streams which do not update their continuity counter
    Codecs: support for MPEG-2 intra slice refresh (aka. Slice-I) streams
    DVD support: fixed a bug which turned the default interface command-line only without the user consent
    Mac OS X port: fixed a crash on start-up on some localized systems, lowered real-time priorities to avoid lock-ups on slow machines, VLC can now be made the handler of ftp http mms and udp URLs, playlist enhancements, added half, normal and double video window menu items, new step forward/step backward commands, the dock should no longer be visible in fullscreen mode, the Mac OS X binary is now compiled with Ogg/Theora support, vlc.app is now VLC.app
    Please note that this release doesn't solve the audio problems experienced by some users.

    this app is so cool, can it get any better.

    Better WMA.ASF decoding would be a blessing but atleast it has WMA compression.
