yes, same here.

I hunted the web for a solution, but never found one for VLC.
Pretty happy with MPC-HC, despite the lack of real customization.

There are plans for overhauling. So tell use what you think we should offer to our users for customization?

Starts near instantly for me, although I recall having a similar issue a few versions back. If I remember right I think it was something to do with media libraries (not enabled by default), I just nuked the configuration and it took care of itself from there.

Still takes forever to start, on all 8 of my Windows 7 machines, and exactly why I switched to MPC after a suggestion from some one here when I posted asking about that exact issue of slow starts.

Does this one has 'normal' start times in W7 and W8?
For me it takes appr. 45-60 sec. for VLC to start....

It should start instantly or a few seconds. Did you try to reinstall?
