I just don't get the popularity of VLC. Nice feature list on paper but Buggy as all get out every time I've tried to actually use it.

it's too bad the kmplayer doesn't work too well in Linux, because it's incredible in XP.

Does anyone agree ?

I request for ffplay .
ffmpg can do all transcoding while ffplay can play all kinds of file.Yet one thing is lacking that is combining video clips using ffmpeg ? (i do using mencoder)
Anyone has a solution ?
I mailed to contact given on mplayer website & they said mplayer (which I got from ubuntu repository for 8.04) was old .
I had MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.2.4 (C) 2000-2007.
Then I got current snapshot & compiled it from tarball.
It needs xorg-dev & libgtk-dev{for gui} packages installed.
Now every thing is fine.
Just wanted to share if somebody had same problem.
Thank You.

(1)Also http://www.videolan.org/vlc/features.html indicates that vlc has partial support in real media files.
In this case mplayer wins.


(2)Also I think when you want to skip ahead continuously then nothing beats mplayer
while
others give distorted frame.

Isn't it ?
