VLC Media Player Reaches Version 1.0
Phoronix: VLC Media Player Reaches Version 1.0
For those of you that use VLC as your media player of choice or those looking for a new media player, head on over to VideoLAN.org as version 1.0.0 of this growingly popular free software application has been released. VLC 1.0.0 has support for live recording, new HD codecs (including Blu-ray and AES3), new formats, new encoders, and many other new features...
Just like VLC 0.9, yes. Which is a great thing.

Care to elaborate on the "Blu-ray" support? I was under the influence that the support was for LPCM and True-HD, not for Blu-ray per se.
Anybody knows about the situation of Lagarith and VLC/ffmpeg? Otherwise congrats. VLC often helped my playing various stuff.
While I personally don't use VLC, I still believe it to be a very important program, and actually the *only* OSS player that's self-standing (i.e. no xine, no MPlayer, no gstreamer dependencies).
Huh? Mplayer and xine can both be compiled the same way to use internal solutions instead of depending on external libs.

Xine isn't cross-platform AFAIK
MPC requires DirectShow codecs
The cross-platform MPlayer experience is a bit more complicated than VLC.
VLC provides a pretty seamless cross-platform experience and is by default built-in with everything needed for playback.
