VLC seems to be fixed

Is this going to be the default media player again?  I know anyone can choose to install it, I just think it's a bit nicer and does more.

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

I just tried to install it and apt-get said it still has 1 bug hmm

I do generally like it more than mplayer, and have always installed on my systems

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

One of the reasons I love #! and started using it in the first place was because it came with VLC (and Terminator)! I would very much love to see it back as the default media player assuming everything works properly.

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

Although I'm using Parole (Xfce) for simpler MP3 or Internet Radio Stream, VLC is my better go to Media Player of choice whenever i want to juggle with all the info and power features of video/audio codecs. So yes, VLC!

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

I now used the default Waldorf gnome mplayer both  as live and installed system on four different elderly and modern computers..

it gave me interrupted playback especially in the beginning of tracks on ALL machines-  i experienced problems with playback of an whole mp3 folder:  could only hear one track, then it stops - on several computers all the same. also, I hear jittering and random breaks in the soundfiles/music

- it did not make a difference if the music data was from newtorking devices, usb, hdd or in ram in a live system. on all computers -  same problems. not only mp3, all music playback. on all machines.

in the end i thought i was doing sth wrong using mplayer and trying to play music, cause in the end i thought it is or movies only and naturally stops after each "track"- but sometimes it plays through an album. might be a bug  related to opening/closing the playlist
,
never had problems like that with vlc before.

edit: VLC +1

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

i prefer gnome mplayer now after being very sceptical at first - speaking of which is anyone having any more issues with compton? it's caused ramdom lockups on this laptop for the last month or so . . . or more correctly, my laptop doesn't lockup randomly now i've turned compton off.

I, too, pretty much use VLC, but if I had a second vote, it would go to UMPlayer.

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

I've just installed VLC on my 64 bit Waldorf edition and it seems to be working fine, I prefer it to other media player but what about giving us the choice to install either or both players via the welcome script or from the menu like you have done with the browser choice.

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

As far as video goes VLC is my favorite player and has been for a few years. If it was default in #! it would save me a job.

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

I would add a vote for vlc. It just seems to do more well than other options.

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

It seems that I am out of the chorus here, but I consider the switch from VLC to mplayer one of the best improvements of the new images.
I hope gnome-player will remain the default choice.

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

^ Yeah- I've resisted vlc until I need it for something special. It adds 64mb- not that I have worries with space, but I like my systems slim, even if that is a reasonless exercise. I've had no issues with mplayer at all yet and indeed it does have a lot of similar features that just aren't made explicitly clear on first appearances. smile

Re: VLC seems to be fixed

+1 for VLC. I've always given a chance to any software installed by default while running different distros but always ended up falling back on VLC for video playback.

I would agree to having vlc as a default. but as long as I can

sudo apt-get install vlc

Then I'm completly happy. Thanks for the Distro

The first thing I did was install VLC and removed gnome-mplayer.

Actually thats not true, I installed chromium, zsh, filezilla, and vlc and removed gftp and gnome mplayer
