    I love VLC, but I had no idea it did that. It’s fun to switch to another application and then back to VLC.

    VLC is a great player and lots of people use it, but is there some statistics which show how popular this player really is? Is there a list that shows the popularity place VLC takes compared to other video players? thanx
