Better Text Formatting in iPhoto

If you're creating a card or book in iPhoto, and you're not happy with the formatting options for the text (such as line spacing or justification), copy the text out to TextEdit, make the changes you want there, and paste it back into iPhoto, which will retain your changes.

VideoLAN has released VLC 2.1.2 with fixes for numerous bugs that were introduced in the version 2.1 release (nicknamed RinceWind after a character 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)

I downloaded and installed VLC 2.1.2 twice and had the same problem every time: The audio is playing ok, while the video is stuck to the first image. Both times I had to uninstall and go back to the older version (prior to update) which runs 100% with the same video files.
Can you tell me what I am doing wrong pls???
