View Full Version : VLC 1.0.2 (now 64-bit)

23rd September 2009, 10:09 PM
An update came out today/yesterday, thought some of you might be interested if you didn't know already:

After almost 2 months and 27 million downloads of VLC 1.0.1, the VLC team is proud to present the third version of the Goldeneye branch of VLC: 1.0.2!

This version introduces many fixes, notably for SSA decoding, v4l2, MacOS interface, ogg/theora, x264 modules and security issues. It also introduces the port to 64bits for Mac OS platform and 2 new languages (Kazakh and Croatian).

Because of the security issues, we strongly recommand everybody to update its version of VLC.

64-bit VLC 1.0.2. (Intel) download:
VideoLAN - Download from mirror (http://www.videolan.org/mirror-geo.php?file=vlc/1.0.2/macosx/vlc-1.0.2-intel64.dmg)

Thanks for the heads up Huy!

Never see much at the front end, but VLC updates usually do a lot of good background things.

Gonna try it out, can't wait to test the 64bit!

Edit: The subtitle font looks heaps ugly, Arial, BOLD and White, is there anyway to make it transparent/gray, similar to he way Roadmovie treats subtitle?

Me luv VLC longtime.

I hope they've gotten rid of the stuttering playback bug that plagued 1.0 and 1.01... I downgraded to 0.99 because of it.

Are you running Snow Leopard? If so, get the 64-bit application. The kernel will still be 32-bit but this does not matter.

Yep, Snow Leopard since launch, so I downloaded the 64 bit version and all seems fine

Version 1.1.0 'The Luggage' just became ready for download. It's the first version that I've seen advertise itself as 64 bit Intel on my Mac. I can't see any huge differences, but I assume it's a meaty upgrade under the hood.

Awesome, that means I can use 64-bit handbrake too.

Pardon my ignorance. What does it mean if we use 64 bit VLC and 64 bit Handbrake - much faster performance?

It gives you the ability to use more RAM at any given time. Depending on how much RAM you actually have this could speed up or slow down performance.
