this is nice because of the GPU acceleration options (i.e. 'Tools > Preferences > Input & Codecs > Use GPU Acceleration (experimental)' )

doing that with VLC keeps my CPU usage to around 10percent (AMD Athlon X2 3600+ ,2.0ghz overclocked to 2.4Ghz) when doing 720p/1080p x264 video. this is pretty much the only reason i use VLC over KMPlayer but besides that KMPlayer is just better. because i noticed KMPlayer must also have something built into it to keep the audio more of a level volume than VLC does when it comes to playing back a audio track (in x264 video) directly from blu-ray. because with VLC you have to turn up volume and then when a heavy action scene comes up the volume gets to loud etc. in KMPlayer it stays a lot more stable no matter what i am playing.

I wish there was an automatic update that don't require you to reinstall the software every time. But thanks for the update.

There is, 'File', 'Check for Updates' and you're prompted to down and install the update - well, that is how it is done on Mac OS X with VLC.

This is beyond the point. With the check for updates thing, at least in windows, all it does it download the installer for the latest version within the program, then you have to essentially reinstall it.

I agree it just downloads the installer then you have to reinstall it selecting your own settings once again, this is annoying. On Mac OS X instead it downloads and overwrites it automatically.

Sheesh, MAC always seems to prosper.
