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."

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…

And you do have a few metres long arms to reach for your mouse?

A remote control is only a few euros. Much better option.

Hey, why don't you do what I did and buy a $8 IR remote control?? It identifies itself as a keyboard & mouse to Linux/Windows/Haiku and works just fine.

You setup a few key bindings in VLC and then you have full control with a nice remote control (pause, play, fast forward, rewind, volume, etc...).

PS: I *HATE* the idea of the video playing/stopping with the LMB.
