Multimedia, AV This is a problem I hadn't yet heard of, so it fascinates me to no end. We all know VLC, right? It's one of the best video players out there, and while I myself generally just install the K-Lite Codec Pack, VLC is definitely a good alternative - and pretty much the norm on Linux. They're having a problem, though: malicious folk are bundling VLC with malware, offering it up for download as the official VLC, and misleading users in the process. Not only does this violate the GPL - it's pretty damn low, too.

Thanks for bringing up this point. I agree that it is important to separate absolute statements from others (and definitely not to hold on too tightly if absolute statements were made and contested). I'm certain more productive and civil conversations would be the result.

Opinions should be influenced by facts, not the other way around.

Err, quote? I was giving an opinion on how I believe conversations should be conducted.

What would you like me to quote?
