Mac VLC Might End

Via Thomas Gideon comes this bad news that a lack of OS X developers on the VLC project might mean that project ceasing on this platform. That would truly bum me out as I’m a user of VLC on my Mac Book. I’ve found it to be the one player that never chokes on any format, no matter what weird thing I throw at it. I sure hope someone steps up and takes the reins on this.

Even though I’ve been a professional developer for the last 12 years, I’ve never once developed for OS X. This would be a pretty rough one to start out on so I’m off the table (also, no chance in hell I have the time and bandwidth for one more project in my life.) College students or other developers with a little extra time and energy, please step up and take over!
