    10 yrs since VLC hit our Macs !!!!!
    Thought people would be interested in knowing that it is 10 yrs since VLC has first started.
    For me personally it has been a great App to play around with. For there 10 yr celebration they have a page set up to celebrate all things VLC.
    Every day up to 10 yrs and 10 days (now currently on day 6) they will put up a surprise for us on the 10 yr page . . . . .

    Welcome to the pages for the Celebration of our 10 years of open source.

    Now looking through the pages, i didnt realise that you could get extensions for VLC. Now i do and and there seems to be some nice extensions in there.

    Ill let you do the hard yards looking around but did want to share this video with you they put up.

    **** Warning**** might contain swearing . . . . . .

    VLC promotional video
    This is quite funny, and sorry about the windows aspect of it. Out of my control

    Enjoy, and look forward to the next 10 yrs with you VLC

    You Rock

    That promo video made me laugh so much,
    From Player... to PLAYA!!!
    .

    On a more serious note though lol, VLC is great, I always try new and old video players but just keep going back to VLC.
    I also didn't know they had extensions and will definitely be checking those out

    Lol at the video! Loved the end, but I still don't get the traffic cone icon at all.
    Anyway, I will be looking at the extensions too, interesting to know. Clearly a lot of us have used it for a long time without ever looking at the developers site at all.
    Cheers mate.

    You can play YouTube videos in VLC? Didn't know that. It's a great way to watch longer clips without having to view it in their Flash video player.

    I'm waiting for Lunettes though - should be nice to have a "more Mac-like version".

    WHat is funny is i have just tried to dl a extension and get a skin and watch a you tube video and i cant.
    Extension gives me a bunch of cde in a web page, the skin comes in a .vlt (ext) and can only be open in windows and i cant find Media → Open Network → Paste the complete Youtube URL.
    So i think this is for windows only

    So sorry for the lead on as i was lead to believe it was for both platforms.

    So for any Windows users of VLC only. OOPS

    Cheers

    PS unless someone can see something i have missed ?

    EDIT : And confirmed in W7 . . . .

    For Youtube videos you have to copy the Youtube video address into the URL box in File > Open Network... (or cmd+n).

    Can't find any way around the extensions to get them working on OSX.

    The VLC website confirms that the skins do not work on OSX:

    How to use these skins?
    Skins do not work on Mac OS X!
    Put the downloaded VLT files in the following folder:
    On Windows: the skins folder in the VLC installation directory (e.g. CProgram Files\VLC\skins)
    On Linux/Unix: ~/.local/share/vlc/skins2

    Then open your VLC settings and change your interface from native to skins. You can choose your desired skin already there or change it when you are in the skins mode by rightclicking somewhere on the skin and going to Interface>Choose Skin.
    VLC needs to be restarted to change to skins mode.
    Hope this helps

    Yeah, I was disappointed to read about the skins being only for Windows. But hopefully they'll address this with the Mac only version of Lunettes.

    VLC Promotional video . . . . My question is, where would thay be putting this as to promote VLC ?

    **Warning** Risque and 1 bleep word in it

    VLC Risque promotional Video

    Just thought i would share and finish off the 10yr celebration with you.

    @Simon Thanks for that mate. I couldnt look past my nose and the **media** part of it.
    Skins do help in W7 though and look good. Cant see or understand why we cant have them on the Mac. Must be a aesthetic thing lol NOT

    Hope you enjoyed all and sorry for the misunderstanding between the 2 platforms

    Cheers
