If you've ever struggled to play a file you downloaded from the hinterlands of the Web, you clearly didn't try opening it with VideoLan's VLC media player, a free, hugely popular, and open-source media player.
VideoLan released on Thursday version 0.9.9, a bug fix release that corrects a few issues with the previous version.
The best media player just got better and is rapidly approaching 1.0 status.
Version 0.9.9 adds the following improvements to the feature-packed VLC player:
* Fullscreen behavior on Windows with multiple screens.
* Workaround bug with libxml2 >=2.7.3.
* Video performance on Intel-based Macs.
* Various decoders updates on Windows.
