    This faulty patch also managed to break all the videos in Rome: Total War. I thought it was a one-off thing until I started reading others had encountered the same thing all within a very short time span.

    My VLC went mental last week for no apparent reason. Unistalled it, reinstalled it, spent ages trying to figure out what went wrong - it's still temperamental and doesn't want to start half the time, (or takes, literally, ten minutes to get going).

    Now I know why...

    VLC has its own codecs though. Surely it wouldn't be affected?

    why does it affect full installs of server 2008 and 2012? what use is media player functions in server versions other than presenting media via RDS, and what company would even do that?

    Seems a hell of a coincidence if it's not related...

    Is it just me or are these faulty updates occuring more+more frequently? Ever since the "black-hole update" Another faulty update occurs every other week or so.
