Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

I tried PackMan in the past but it replaces too many other packages, which got me scared... That was more than a year ago so I'll try again...

Yes, PackMan replaces packages if you perform a dist-upgrade. PackMan has newer versions of many applications, eg. Brasero, Miro, also GStreamer (with full support for patented codecs), etc.
So far nothing from PackMan broke my installation.

Okay, I enabled the Packman repository, but it doesn't include a newer version of VLC.

VLC repo has 0.9.2-1.1, Packman has 0.9.2-0.pm.2...
