Has it finally implemented some of the standard functionality everyone expects from a video player? Can I finally just click the screen to pause/unpause? Does ALT-ENTER finally work to fullscreen? These don't sound all that important, but they're both constant minor irritants every time I end up using VLC for something.
by Anonymous Coward: "Well, VideoLAN is not a company: it's a not profit organization, driven by volonteers to work on free software."
As such it's documentation (help file) or menus aren't updated accordingly. VLC will do just about anything, but you might have to search for many of these features.
I use PMS to stream from my PC to PS3 using VLC, this was all done using outside documentation. Ripping DVD/CD's? best done searching for a VLC how to.
It apparently started as a music player this from a set of key-combs not commonly known of. I found searching for just that; key-combos to use with Power Pro (AutoIt - AutoHotKeys type program) to control VLC from a Menu of commands I find useful.
I've already installed the new VLC but haven't had a need to use it yet, but noticed F11 as being full screen mode (toggle), and works fine with nothing playing.
