VLC Media Player 2.1.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

VideoLAN has released VLC 2.1.2 [1] with fixes for numerous bugs that were introduced in the version 2.1 release (nicknamed RinceWind after a character [2] from Terry Pratchett’s “Discworld” series of novels). The update also features a rewritten audio core that should improve volume and device management, adds hardware decoding for Mac OS X using VDADecoder, offers support for fragmented MP4 files (as well as Wave and RF64 files), adds support for screen input on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and later, and is now ready for 4K displays. (Free, 30.1 MB, release notes [3])
