sorry if this has been covered already (i couldnt find anythin after doing a search).
like the titles say.. VLC crashes so much under Tiger!
or is this just me? i havent heard anyone else have problems on this forum.
its usually when im resizing the video size.. but not always. not sure if im doing anything wrong or maybe the app isnt compatible with Tiger?
everything was working fine in Pather.. not a single crash since i started using VLC.

comments n suggestions?

Duff-Man says...it's called beta software...report the problems (and be as specific as you can about your hardware and what you are doing when it crashes) to the developer - they'll try and diagnose and fix if they can....oh yeah!

Big thanks for the link. My .ogm and .mkv files now have the audio support I did back in the Windows days. I didn't know they updated it.

The 0.8.2 update isn't fixing a problem I've been having since I upgraded to Tiger. I was wondering if anyone else was having it to and/or has found a way around it.

I can't load srt or sub files with movies anymore - files that worked perfectly find before the Tiger update. I can't load them manually, it doesn't do anything when I tell it to auto-load them, and "Subtitles Track" under the Video menu is greyed out. Subtitles work just fine when I'm playing a DVD, but not for srt files.

Anyone else having this problem?

Anyone know if this new version of vlc runs better under tiger than xineplayer?
Both seem just as stable as each other to me, but I've decided to stay with XinePlayer I prefer it's all in 1 QuickTime(ish) look.
