Mac OS X MacNN has just published an important news item regarding the future of the Mac OS X version of the VLC mdia player. According to VLC's developers, the Mac version is at risk of being discontinued due to a lack of developers. Update: The VLC developers claim that Apple is working against them: "Apple doesn't want us on the Mac platform and is blocking us a lot, and refuses to explain why."

Okay, I don't fully understand what Apple is doing to prevent VLC from developing on the OS X system. Regardless of the reasoning, but what exactly is Apple doing to make it known to Video LAN that they are not wanted. Has Apple sent nasty letters? What do these letters day? What is it that Video LAN is having difficulties with?

I am trying to understand what Apple is doing, not why.
