When viewing FullHD content with VLC (at least in 1.0.0 and 1.0.1), you may need to right click the video windows and select Video - Interlace - Discard to improve (a lot) the quality of the playback.

If you don't, the video will be a little grainy.

Does it still show blocky videos on Windows 7?

I'll try it when I get home. I was getting the blockiness too. The same video on KMPlayer looks perfect.

Thought it was just me, I couldn't find anyone on google talking about this. I used an older "unsupported" windows version of the ati drivers which worked fine.

Ooh, flash and mpg seeking AND Mac improvements -- downloading :)

Not bad for a "minor" release.

I don't get the "wmv support" part though, I definitely thought it had it before?

the .99 to 1.0 upgrade was a vast improvement on my system.

I found .99 better to be honest. Half the time 1.0 doesn't even load the videos for me, i have to kill the process and try again. Hopefully 1.0.1 will fix this issue for me.
