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."

If you can't manage that then clearly the fault here is that you're inappropriately using a mouse.

It's also worth mentioning that you really should be using a media centre rather than a media player. Perhaps something like XBMC would be better suited for your needs.

it's easy to bitch about how "useless" technology is when you deliberately use it in the most retarded way imaginable.

Media centre apps (like XBMC, Boxee, WMC, etc) are nice if you have the hardware to run them. Most (all?) of the media centre apps out there require skookum 3D graphics cards with working OpenGL/DirectX, meaning you can't grab old (5+ years) PCs and convert them into media centres. But, those same PCs run VLC, Dragon, and other video players without issues, and can be used as HTPCs without issues.

For example, my 2.8 GHz P4 Celeron laptop with an onboard Ati RADEON 7000 graphics chipset cannot run XBMC, Boxee, and similar as it doesn't support OpenGL 1.4+. But, it can decode and play XviD without issues using Dragon Player in KDE4. And all it needs is a wireless mouse. ;)
