    I hope the re-written audio core fixed the issues I've been having with audio/video sync ever since vlc 2.0.4 (unsync's after I pause/resume a video).

    I wonder if it fixes the issue with VLC's horrible color depth. Comparing a video on mplayer2 to VLC is night and day (which sucks, because I rather like VLC)

    Still haven't fixed the now almost 5 year old keyboard shortcut bug in at least the German language (H instead of Ctrl-H). Fail.

    Why not have a go at fixing it yourself? Most people get involved in open source development by scratching their own itches...

    Enable VA-API in the settings and you should not have any problems with video acceleration in VLC if you have the VA-2-VDPAU backend installed. Otherwise, the latest version of Gnome MPlayer should work fine for you.

    Did some checking and it turns out that it's just not there in the settings because all of the VLC builds in the repositories aren't being compiled with VDPAU enabled. So you have to download the source from VideoLan and compile it yourself with VDPAU enabled.
