VLC 2.0.5 landed in Ubuntu Software Center
Weeks ago, VLC 2.0.5 was released, presenting itself as a minor bug fixes-related release.
The 2.0.5 version carries a relevant fix that removes various issues with audio handling while playing movies: typically, after starting playing a movie, pressing on the progressbar (thus navigating forward), was generating an overall low-quality sound experience, issue manually fixed by maximizing/unmaximizing its window and changing the volume percentage (multiple times), effort aimed at restoring VLC's proper sound handling.
VLC 2.0.5 comes with an optimized audio approach, successfully playing both audio and video content, without audio artifacts in both fullscren and non-fullscreen mode.
The 2.0.5 version has just landed in Ubuntu Software Center, allowing users to easily install the fixed media player under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 12.10.
VLC 2.0.5 is available for installation via Ubuntu Software Center.
