I mentioned this wackiness the other week. I'm glad they fixed it.

I'm still a little choppy at full-screen with my MacBook. The rest seems to be working fine.

the update royally screwed me!

1) Now when a movie is done, it remains in fullscreen and just black.

2) if I select "screen 2" and hit command "F" it goes full screen on whatever screen the mini window is on, not to the screen it is supposed to got to

I know it doesn't sound like much but, after using VLC for so long and it working like that, this just sucks.

Now I have to actually quit VLC to remove the Fullscreen window from my 2nd screen and I have to physically move the mini window to the second screen before going fullscreen...

Does it do this with all file types? Mine seems to be going back to the main menu just fine.

about 98% of my videos are in .avi containers. I'll try some others but it's the .avi's that are most important. I'll also try crappin' the App and reinstalling it....

This actually feels like the most stable version of VLC that I've played around with in a while, so no complaints here.

Hmm..I cannot scan/fast-forward through FLV files. It stops the video. Anyone know a fix?

On another note--what the heck is the problem with the Nightlies archive? They haven't had an update since Nov 2nd.

No nightlies and yet a new release seems a bit...odd?

until you've "cached" the video (played through it, and only in that session), I don't think seeking in FLV files has ever worked.

Flash video has been a bane on the world wide web. sure, the quicktime/real/windowsmedia debate was really stupid, but once quicktime started using MPEG-4 and windows media player included MPEG-4 support, there was never any reason not to just use MPEG-4 for everything. now we have MPEG-4 wrapped in FLV which makes playback retarded-slow with terrible Flash-based interfaces. plus, Flash is proprietary. ugh.</rant>

It works fine in the nightlies, hence my other question. That's reason #2 why I miss the updates to the nightlies...#1 being new features like the new full screen mode I have known about and been using since October. </snobbery>
