Just a heads up that a long-standing bug with UNC filenames has been fixed in official videolan 0.8.6 RC1 nightly build http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/win32/branch-20061205-0330/vlc-0.8.6...
Playing files/playlists with accents/umlauts/japanese characters, etc. in the filename was previously impossible.
This is the forum thread http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?t=19711
Is there any way that this RC could replace the current VLC portable? Thanks
