VLC media playerVLC Media Player – Per capitalization norms, I don't find anything obstructive for this move, and if the move takes place we have redo the article. extra999 (talk) 05:02, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose - What capitalization norms? If your referring to MOS:CAPS, the lede of that guideline would suggest not capitalizing the title; "Wikipedia relies on sources to determine what is a proper name" and the VideoLAN website uses "VLC media player". WP:TITLEFORMAT also says "Use lower case, except for proper names". - SudoGhost 05:44, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - The windows version displays lower case in the title bar itself. - Shiftchange (talk) 05:53, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
The Linux version does as well, in the title and the about dialog. - SudoGhost 05:59, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose. When I tried searching the internet, the results always come up as "VLC media player" not "VLC Media Player"; it is not the official title of VLC media player; it is not a proper noun. Angelica (talk to me?) 15:49, 08 July 2012 (UTC)

Christmas Hat[edit]

For why is the Christmas Hat on the Traffic Cone until 2nd January only? Perhaps more appropriate until 6th January (terminating just before midnight on 5th January (twelfth night). 109.148.166.13 (talk) 10:39, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

It is because designation, e.g if you are Muslim you can make a Ramadan theme to the VLC.5.47.30.81 (talk) 22:23, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

VLC Metro[edit]

VLC is listed as a 'Windows Component' giving the impression that is an OFFICIAL part of Microsoft Windows, which it most certainly is not. 115.187.246.202 (talk) 17:26, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

MorphOS[edit]

VLC is not compatible with MorphOS. I searched and MorphOS is not listed ANYWHERE on the VLC website. Perhaps VLC stopped development on MorphOS and so no current version of VLC is available for MorphOS. The citations given do not mention MorphOS. I am deleting MorphOS from VLC article.

VLC Android[edit]

I can provide a screenshot of VLC on Android for the Android section, but should I? --DSA510 Pls No RE 16:04, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

  • That would be great; why not? Just make sure that it is not intrusive and does not display any user information or adjustments. (A good screenshot would be VLC freshly installed on a standard Android OS.) 72.80.79.224 (talk) 03:04, 12 January 2015 (UTC) Brian
Someone should update the Google Play link, it's not beta anymore (still this versions exists). I'm missing info about the playlist format also, and VLC should be added to the Comparison of audio player software. The dogma of "don't list as audio if it can play video to" should be broken.--Mideal (talk) 13:21, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
