VLC is indispensable - not only on the Mac but on any platform. The only thing that never worked - at least for me (on Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks) - was the auto-update feature. If I select the check-for-updates menu I always more...

Odd. Was using VLC when it prompted me to DL the 2.1.5 update. Did so, but it asked for an archive password to install. Hit the Cancel button and it installed and relaunched normally. (Great program, been using it for years.)

Anyone know why the installer has the password front-end on it this time?

VLC has never asked for a password for me, even installing from an administrator account.

Same happened to me but I think I used the "OK" button (empty password). The update installed but after that I downloaded the new version and replaced the updated one with it, just to be sure.

MacUpdate's download link at the top of the page only shows the current version of VLC and the last 10.4.11-compatibie version.

It should also, I think, show the most recent PPC-compatible version. As far as I know, this is 2.0.9, and it requires Leopard.

Out of curiosity, I've just compared the new 2.0.10/32 bits (available on VLC's website) to the 2.0.8/64 bits on a dual core 10.8.5, and quite surprisingly its footprint is about 10% less!
So, for anyone having issues with version 2.1.x, it's worth trying it (though I haven't noticed any other change yet).

While we can hope for a 2.1.5 or 2.2.0 soon, here's the URL for 2.0.10 for anyone interested: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html ;-)

I used to love vlc, but after upgrading to 2.1.4, it routinely caused kernel panics. Doing a few searches shows that vlc has had a frequent history of causing kernel panics for many people (50K+ results for vlc+kernel+panic), regardless of os version and vlc version. And the vlc doesn't even care about the problem. Any ticket that reports the problem gets closed with a message saying it's not vlc's problem and apple has to fix it.
