    So this affects very few people?

    Lame VLC, add ATI support or else I have no reason to go back to you, I will be sticking with Media Player Classic Home Cinema.

    I love when developers blame sub par code on drivers. If it works with other programs, it will work with yours.

    Looking at the audio options, it seems to support up to 18 different channels, but don't hold me to that. I did have a look at the video differences between VLC and MPCHC running avatar in HD, and VLC seemed much darker. I suppose it's personal taste at the end of the day.

    Nice to know, VLC is my choice of media player. Shame about ATi.

    Actually no, its not. CUDA for the most part is still kinda weak and show minimal performance gains in some applications over OpenCL/GL.

    The reason people are siding with ATi is because Fermi is a flop in their opinion, its way too hot and uses way too much power.

    Unless you're using the MPE in APP CS5 there's nothing really gained by using nvidia accelerators.

    I'm currently using my HD5770 to accelerate the endless amount of OpenGL accelerated applications inside CS5. No issues. No issues in any other application either, MPC-HC manages fine when it comes to using the 'windows drivers' the same drivers which are making it impossible for the VLC guys.

    I love the VLC player but I pledge my allegiance to ATi. Oh well looks like I'll be buying a Nvida card for physx and Cuda. ATi HD 6000 series should bring Radeon completely on par with Nvidia as I'm happy more developers are starting to take advantage of these massive power plants PC gamers have in their rigs.

    Nvidia = more than just games.

    Surely this only affects users who run vlc on a laptop with Ati dedicated graphics and a weedy cpu:

    GPU acceleration would be nice, but not a necessity generally?

    VLC is a fantastic media player regardless of the GPU acceleration, which I'm sure will come for more graphics cards in time.. It plays pretty much any file so is very handy to have..

    Good, 10.6 is the first ever ATi driver I've skipped - ever! Not impressed ATi, but at least I'm not using an nVIDIA card.
