    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.
