VLC works fine in Vista. Goto the preferences, make sure the Advanced Options is ticked. Go Video > Output Modules and change it to "Windows GDI"

everything works perfectly. all smooth
except 1 thing. i couldnt use pause/play [spacebar] or wateva when movie was in fullscreen mode.

yeah damit.. that's not working. The part about draggin a file there too isn't working also! I like just draggin files to the player as it still isn't my default. WMP11 is but for now (still using beta Vista) it's the best on my laptop.

It's a known bug since test 1, on Windows hotkeys are not working in full screen mode :(. I read it has something to do with the new version of the xWidgets interface.
