John is the "master programmer boy" and I'm sure he is working on an update.
So there is no need to start a new thread cause of an updated App and no double posts are needed, too.

John, like in every forum, no no never...

you can write "search" in font-size 200, red-blue blinking and 2 big arrows signing on it... and 90% of users will ignore it...


@thread starter:
you don't need be a "programming boy" or somehow like this, you can simply use the updatebutton in vlc itself...
or load it as a .zip file, and extract it into the "apps" folder, overwrite all files, and it will work... in most cases

often, there are no such big changes in an app, that you need a new launcher.
above all, if it is only a jump from 0.8.6a to 0.8.6b

Apps on my Portable Device:
Miranda, Firefox, Sunbird, Thunderbird, 7-Zip, FileZilla, GIMP, OOo, Sodoku and VLC

Switch Alpha's guts with Beta's guts.

As all of ya should know Microsoft is the Evil Empire, and Windows (a.k.a. Winblows or Windoze) is their greatest general, so please make a difference and install Linux or Free BSD on yer Windows comp.
