    VLC now being targeted by Movie Chiefs


    Hi there
    It looks if Hollywood gets their way things like OPEN SOURCE soiftware will be the next casualty.

    The latest target is the very popular VLC player -- I should download your copy ASAP if this nonsense continues.

    Quite strange. What has that got to do with HBO?

    Must be a mistake.

    The dvd consortium should be pleased vlc and others are providing an alternative now MS has decided to dump dvd related stuff. Anything that keeps people able to use dvd functionality will help them

    HBO offers Game of Thrones which is the show being heavily pirated. I can see taking down Game of Thrones torrents, but not VLC. Might as well take down Linux, OSX and Windows which can playback these movies while you are at it.

    I don't get it. What has vlc got to do with pirated materials?

    BTW, I've never seen a single episode of game of thrones. Don't know what that is. Don't care.

    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7


    It's a false complaint. VLC has nothing to do with the content people choose to watch with it, legit or otherwise. As of now, VLC is the only way people can watch DVDs in Windows 8 without Medea Center.
