VLC reaches 2.0
Download here: VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!


VLC 2.0 "Twoflower" is a major new version of our popular media player.


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.

Completely new, single window interface:
- Available in 2 colors: Lion grey and QTX black.

I downloaded this new version of VLC (2.0) and now all my vids play sideways. Can you tell me how to fix it? Thanks.

Don't forget that if you used VLC with Handbrake, there are a few things to do to make sure the library works.

Sorry to sound dense, but I have no idea what handbreak is or what library you're talking about. All I know is that I used VLC for years with no problems. Then I downloaded the new and improved (???) version and now I have a pain in the neck from having to tilt my head to see my vids. Any help would be appreciated.

"Transform" was unchecked, so I checked it. The vids come across correctly now. Thanks so much Vansmith for the tip. Another dumb question...Do software creators feel empowered when they put out a new version that makes users search for solutions to new problems that occur with they download their creations? All it does for me is search for better software. Does anyone know if GOM has been created for Macs yet? I used it when I had a PC and it was fantastic...not to mention trouble free.
