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."

I already have a wireless trackball. Why would I buy a useless gadget (remote) when I can do everything I want with a mouse?

Just a note (also notice that Youtube and all the well-behaved Flash players allow play/pause through left click).

This behavior annoys me.

I tend to left-click prior to right-click. But the worst part is when trying to bring the window back to the forefront. I tend to click on the content area of a window to bring it to the front (particularly true of my multi-monitor setup) - I become quite annoyed when the video pauses (or plays) due to this simple action.

However, I do believe it should be a configurable option. Triggering an even on LMB_DOWN isn't exactly complex or resource intensive...
