Multimedia, AV VLC 2.0 has been released. "With faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware and the ability to open more formats, notably professional, HD and 10bits codecs, 2.0 is a major upgrade for VLC. Twoflower has a new rendering pipeline for video, with higher quality subtitles, and new video filters to enhance your videos. It supports many new devices and BluRay Discs (experimental). Completely reworked Mac and Web interfaces and improvements in the other interfaces make VLC easier than ever to use. Twoflower fixes several hundreds of bugs, in more than 7000 commits from 160 volunteers."

Awesome! Yet I still cannot play/pause by clicking LMB on the picture which makes it almost completely useless... pity!

LOL, because hitting space is next to impossible.

Edit: Before I forget: Congrats, great improvements. Great free software.

I don't know about you but I don't have a few meters long arms to reach to my keyboard while sitting comfortably in my armchair…

You can just right click to get to the context menu. then left click on pause/play.
I don't believe that extra click makes the whole program useless.

FYI, some of us actually prefer it not to do that.
