VLC media player 0.8.6d

Posted on Thursday, November 29 2007 @ 15:11:37 CET by

VLC is a free cross-platform media player with a large number of codecs built-in.

VLC (initially VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

Various bugfixes:
  • Mozilla plugin: supports a reasonable amount of MIME types on Windows
  • Linux: Fixed S/PDIF passthrough with ALSA
  • Automatic recovery on unexpected stream discontinuity (clock gap) occurrences in input
  • Use field order (top/bottom) for correct bob/linear deinterlacing
  • Fix invalid free in bookmarks loading code
Windows and Mac OS Binaries
  • FLAC Security Update (CVE-2007-4619) to prevent multiple integer overflows
Active X plugin:
  • Security update (VideoLAN-SA-0703)
Mac OS X Interface & Port:
  • Apple Remote support on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard with enhanced functionality
  • Improved Video Output compatibility for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
  • Improved behavior of the Fullscreen Controller and mode changes between Fullscreen and Windowed Video Output
  • Softened the white flash artifacts that may appear during the transition of two different movies
  • Support for current Ogg file formats
    NOTE: This release requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. Mac OS X 10.3.9 is not supported anymore.
  • Improved H.264 encoding speed on Mac OS X
Other changes:
  • The automatic updating facility was removed
  • You now need to append --m3u-extvlcopt to your command line to enable EXTVLCOPT options parsing in m3u playlists.
