This has been out since the beginning of April, but I kind of overlooked it.Â VideoLAN (VLC) is an excellent multimedia player with itâ€™s own plugins for playing different formats, so it doesnâ€™t need any codecs to be installed. It works great for previewing partially downloaded files too as well as DVDs.
This is a bugfix release. VLC media player 0.8.6e and earlier versions suffer from security vulnerabilities in the Subtitle demuxer, Real RTSP demuxer, MP4 demuxer and Cinepak codec.
This release also includes improved video output on multi-screen setups running Mac OS X and compatibility with Windows 9x/ME has been restored.Â It’s strongly recommended all to update to this new version.
