    Video Lan Client has received a minor update.

    But it resizes video now just like Quicktime! :cool: A little late but I have not seen any news around here for it. And VLC did not even try to update itself...

    The updater found an update when I told it to check... didn't tell me on its own, is it supposed to auto-check? Some apps don't do that.

    Whatcha mean by "resizes video just like QuickTime"? The smooth resize thing? Pretty cool, though pointless. :)

    You get the smooth rescaling effect. I guess VLC doesn't look for updates on its own then.

    Notice that I already mentioned that. Nice try though.

    I must say I adore VLC.

    Ever since it supports Dolby 5.1 / DTS etc. using the Mac's optical audio output, it really is one of my top-5 apps.
    OTOH.... sometimes I find VLC generating errors or slowdowns while players like MPLayer OS X can play the same (usually large HD-) movies fluently.
    But then again.... no Dolby Digital sound in MPlayer OS X.
