    No I had different issues ie the aspect ratios were wrong and it was chopping too much off or it would not let me fast forward / rewind or skip to different parts of the m2ts file but translucent UI seemed fine.

    Only thing I did find which I have not tried was to change the loopback processing for H264 on the FFMPEG section to Bi Dir for better quality or All but setting to All supposdly degrades quality of the video being played back.

    I have mplayer extended and also the MplayerX as well as VLC and quicktime + perian

    Using snow leopard ( 10.6.6 )

    Tried that setting and that black window to start with is in the foreground, double click it and the translucent controller becomes visible and workable with a full screen of pitch black and the video plays behind it. Double click and it shrinks back to a black square and u can click on an area around the black square which is the video and the black square and translucent ui controller vanish and you can bring the video to the foreground but with no controls

    Any ideas?

    VLC keeps me sane sometimes - shame they removed it from the app store. Great bit of kit.

    Shame it was in the app store in contravention of its license.

    Trashing all of VLCs preferences might be worth a try perhaps?

    Code:
    ~/Library/Preferences/org.videolan.vlc.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/org.videolan.vlc.LSSharedFileList.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/VLC
    ~/Library/Caches/org.videolan.vlc
    * The last two are folders, not files.

    Still doing it, almost like its creating 2 layers or forms, one for the video canvas and one for the translucent UI and when you launch the m2ts video file the video canvas is in the background playing back and the canvas for the UI controls are in the foreground, annoying is what it is but that didn't make a blind bit of difference.

    VLC v1.1.10 released.

    This release, 2 months after 1.1.9, was necessary because some security issues were found, and the VLC development team cares about security.

    This release brings a rewritten pulseaudio output, an important number of small Mac OS X fixes, the removal of the font-cache building for the freetype module on Windows and updates of codecs.
    Code:

    * Update of external library modplug, to address multiple security issues

    * Improved Media Key handling based upon SPMediaKeyTap by Spotify AB
    * Fix for various crashes and small issues
    
    Demuxer:
    * Fix heap corruption / integer overflow in XSPF playlist parser
    
    Audio output:
    * PulseAudio output re-written due to unstability of the current one
    
    Win32 port:
    * Remove the fontconfig dependency from the freetype module
    
    Miscellaneous fixes in:
    * Windows 7 taskbar buttons
    * Qt interface
    * asx, live555, dvdnav demuxer
    * RTP output and XML export
    * Subtitles colours when using GPU decoding on Windows

    I used OS X MPlayer Extended which works better then the normal MPlayer and allowed me to pause m2ts files and works most of the time, sometimes the video footage is shifted to an odd place like its been moved diagonally by about 10 cm's to the top right so has chopped off a good chunk, I just have to keep flicking between players depending no the video

    How do you guys deploy this? I made an MSI the other year of 1.0.3 (I think that's the version number). It works and I've never bothered to update - but I wish the people who create it would make a generic MSI.

    I read it can be installed on a network drive but does this install the 'Play With VLC.... ' on the right click button? I don't really want it accessed over the network.

    I built my own MSI using Advanced Installer. Takes me about 5 minutes to update it when there's a new version, and most of that is just checking which files have been added/removed. Mine doesn't have any context menu items though (and only one file association) so probably wouldn't be much use to you I'm afraid, plus I'm not really sure how distributing an alternative installer gels with the licence agreement.

    Thanks AT.

    I send the vlc exe to the workstation to C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\vlc-1.1.9-win32.exe

    then simply execute a batch file with the command
    vlc-1.1.9-win32.exe /L=1033 /S
    L=1033 being the language ( English) and /S being a silent install

    Have you done this with the latest version? Would you mind suggesting how?

    VLC runs with almost no config, so it's really just a case of starting a new project and throwing all the files from the .zip distribution in.
