Warren just sent me an email saying he is replacing kmplayer with vlc in Final.

Interesting move...

I've noticed that vlc does a much better job with Realmedia files than the current mplayers and works well for online radio streams & DVD play also. I still use mplayer some, but I use vlc more.

I think it's a good change.

Forgot to mention: he said he has finally dealt with the fact that choosing to not install bluetooth or kppp has no effect by simply removing the page from the Installer!

I'm happy to see Warren choose VLC.

Veetle is 'all about VLC'.

I'm all about VLC (because I'm all about Veetle and H.264).

So, I'd say, AS USUAL, Warren 'gets it'! :clap:

Vlc is a great choice over Kmplayer. Can't stand the default GNOME Totem other distros use, either...too dumbed down.

Many people migrating from Winders are already familiar with it, too.

Yep

Good idea but since B4 can't install VLC (dependencies issue)...
