Hi! I'm just evaluating VLC as alternative to xine or mplayer, and I stumbled across the same bug. However, in my case the file wasn't called "a.avi" but "داخلحماممغربي.flv", and picks up a bunch of files called *.txt or *.utf8.
Cheers! Uli _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
