VLC 0.9.3

Just released. So new they've not fully updated their links yet, but that should be resolved shortly. They claim bug fixes, so here's to hoping it's stable enough for portability.

Nope

They've discontinued Windows builds entirely due to issues so they haven't even released a build of 0.9.3. Perhaps it's because 0.9.2's new features were so buggy on Windows.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Well that's no good.

Guess I'm stuck with Mplayer still then. Was hopeful.

I'm pretty sure it's because they have NO Windows devs!

Unless you have some inside info that's not posted on their site, all signs point to the fact that they don't have any developers for Windows at all!

From the VLC site:

"We are putting out a call for NEW Windows developers. At the moment, our Windows-port is sorely missing some much needed love from a true Windows developer. Our team has been without a Windows developer for several months now, which is blocking us from supporting our largest usergroup in the manner we want to. We are therefore looking for developers to help our team in the areas of debugging crashes, Direct X, A/V capturing, ActiveX and Windows integration, so we can hopefully resume supporting our largest group of users in the best possible way. If we are unable to find new developers, new versions of VLC media player for Windows might become less frequent and severely out of sync with the Linux and Mac OS X versions.
So, no donations for work on the Windows-port and no "opportunities"-emails, for Windows we only require: Developers, Developers, Developers !!!!!"

Anybody here able to help??

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

Not New

Yeah, but that's not a new thing. They haven't had a Windows developer in months but they've still been doing Windows builds. But I think the staleness of the Windows-specific stuff and the bugs in the Windows build have caused them to suspend the Windows builds until they get a Windows developer on their team again.

I hope they do get some windows developers. VLC is one of the best video players out there.

Pretty weird, usually it's

Pretty weird, usually it's the other way around: there is a lot of Windows developers, but not enough on Unix/OSX
