Great product: VLC - the cross-platform media player and streaming server

I just found this mediaplayer. It’s awesome, as it can even plays DVD from .IMG image files etc etc… it works like a very charmy charming charm! And best of all: it’s free!

What ? No Xbox ?

Oh well… i’ll try it out :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Been using it for a couple of weeks now…its nice, but Im not happy with the progress bar. Maybe there is a setting I`ve missed…? Whenever I wanna move within the media file the progress bar jumps back and forth before settling…

Anyway it`s a nice altenative to wmp… :wink:

what kind of media file do you experience the jumpiness with?

MPEG like in DVD MPEG2? If so, this is pretty normal, other DVD playing programs do just the same (they skip to certain “anchorpoints”).

Im mostly running mpeg1 (layer 2), but it might the same issues you mentioned for mpeg2, the "anchorpoints"...however I dont feel like it`s that much in wmp…

Anyway…nice proggie :stuck_out_tongue:
