      I hope the re-written audio core fixed the issues I've been having with audio/video sync ever since vlc 2.0.4 (unsync's after I pause/resume a video).

        I wonder if it fixes the issue with VLC's horrible color depth. Comparing a video on mplayer2 to VLC is night and day (which sucks, because I rather like VLC)

          Still haven't fixed the now almost 5 year old keyboard shortcut bug in at least the German language (H instead of Ctrl-H). Fail.

            Why not have a go at fixing it yourself? Most people get involved in open source development by scratching their own itches...

              Not everyone is a coder. Or not skillful enough to get involved in a high caliber project. Its not as easy as you make it sound.

                Making it sound easy was unintentional.

                I just find the insistance on focusing on something negative to the exclusion of all the good to be unpleasant.

                xnor: can you post a link to the bug report?

                  You're right that not everyone is a coder or very skilled, but given that the bug in question is pretty... particular. Its very possible the fix for it could be done 'easily' since you'd have the other hotkey code to use as references.

                    I opened a bug report over half a year ago which was closed immediately. I posted the problem and even the solution on their forums, a Developer (forum title) wrote:
                    "I already have a working patch but the powers that be will not let me merge it."

                    It gets better. The bug I opened was closed:
                    "Already reported many times."

                    My question "Duplicate of what? Ticket number please." was never answered.


                    edit: reopened. -_-

                      VDPAU support still sux and hidden, experimental.

                          FLAC files now play from the start instead of a few milliseconds into the track. MPC-HC still has this problem so it's good to see at least one major player has fixed it (even if it was unintentionally fixed).

                            Just installed it. The new audio core is FAR better, all my issues are fixed. No more audio/video de-syncing when I pause/resume and no more audio stutter when pausing. Now pauses/unpauses very cleanly and with no sound issues like mplayer Can finally go back to vlc.

                              No SPDIF Passthrough

                              SPDIF Passthrough doesn't work for me, I have checked 'Use S/PDIF when available' and 'Force detection of Dolby Surround', but I still get 2chn PCM instead of untouched AC3 track getting fed to A/V receiver.
