    Thanks for the news. Did any of you get this via auto-update? Mine still shows v1.1.5 as the latest build...

    Mine said the same thing on more than one computer. It's been about nine months since I last used VLC (I reinstalled 1.1.5 recently & before that had used it for a couple of years) but as far I can remember the auto-update has never worked. :(

    If you download the 1.1.6 installer & run it, the wizard will give you the option to uninstall the previous version, & will then install the new one.

    It doesn't take long. :thumb:

    VLC has had hardware acceleration for quite a while.

    In my experience the recent auto-updates always take a day or two extra to kick in after the initial release.

    Funny how what works for some doesn't for others...I have always been prompted that a new build is available via auto-update..o_O
    I ended up doing it manually this time, on this box...we'll see what happens next release...:rolleyes:

    Thanks...I never really paid attention to this before. Updated 1 box manually, will hold off on the other just to see how long the auto lag is..

    It may have done the same for me in the past & I just can't recall it. I've recently recovered from a bad case of flu & my brain is still a bit muddled LOL! o_O

    Auto-update just went through, so looks to be a roughly 24 hour window before it's pushed..
