Multimedia, AV After an 8 year long development process, the team behind the VLC Media Player has released version 1.0.0 of their popular and capable media player. Even though previous versions weren't necessarily unstable, reaching version 1.0 is still somewhat of a milestone.

Intrestingly enough VLC's ogg muxer/demuxer (implementation of encoding/decoding to ogg container, incl .ogv files) is pretty broken.

Otherwise it's an excellent media player. We've been using as default player on all workstations of our workplace. Although that use may decrease now - most viewed media is in an inhouse .ogv archive and with the arrival of Firefox 3.5 most users will probably prefer direct decoding/rendering in browser.
