Still buggy on Linux.

Frostek reviewed v1.0.0 on Jul 12, 2009

Since the last few versions a lot of the long standing issues, like the GUI and moving the time slider have been improved drastically. Still a few quirks, but it looks like these will be gone soon too.

So far, I can't watch anything but those DVDs without region coding. It's also skittish when dealing with time. It works, though, if you just want to sit through the lot of the content and don't disturb anything.

It has high computability but it's incredibly unstable and the UI is is among the worst ever. It's my fall back player for when MPlayer (and Zoom Player and Media Player Classic when on Windows) fails me (rare).

Best player with worst GUI, I use media player classic, and only when it fails, use VLC

Absolutely superb bit of software. My main media player on any platform.

An amazing endeavor that surpasses the capabilities of any other media player, free or otherwise. Plays any type of video and audio file I've ever encountered, including DVD files. Put VLC in your send-to shortcuts and right click on your downloaded video_ts folders to watch immediately!

This is probably the only media player I would need on Linux
