Cheers again Ron. LOL ... another ap that always catches me out!
I hate when I put software back on, and literally the next day I have to do it again because of an update Thanks.
Edit: Not available on their release page yet.
Yes, I'm getting Version 1.1.11 on their page.
They need to get moving
Windows installer is still 1.1.11
The only place I even see mention of it is on the news page. A quick glance through their forums shows no talk of it. I wonder what the deal is?
Yeah, still version 1.1.11... Not even 1.1.12 came out... even less 1.1.13... lol
It sounds like they jumped their own gun, lol.
Glad I "jumped ship" to MPC-HC 64.
However if you feel insecure with your current VLC version, you can grab the latest "nightly" (alpha and probably buggy) version here: http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/win32/trunk-/
MPC seems to need too many extra codecs for my usage. As far as security issues with VLC, that's what Sandboxie is for
Has a VLC exploit ever been known to be used in the wild?
Well, version 1.1.12 did come out, but only for Mac OS X, for what it seems -http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html
I saw it moments ago when looking through Source Forge. They could release new versions for the other O.S to keep a consistency in version numbering. It gets very confusing...
I don't know why Ubuntu comes with VLC and so many plugins. Removed those immediately...
Anyways, this is a BO so use EMET and you should be fine.
Ubuntu is meant as an alternative to Windows. It must be compatible (by default) with at least the same formats supported by popular Windows' built-in apps.
