If you’re one of the millions of VLC users out there, you’d better check for new versions because the developing team has just rolled out another update that brings improvements on all supported desktop platforms.

VLC Media Player 2.1.5 brings stability improvements for the QTSound capture module, while also implementing a series of enhancements for the built-in decoders.

For example, this fresh release includes a fix for DxVA2 decoding of samples needing more surfaces, while also improving MAD resistance to broken MP3 streams.

The developing team says that VLC 2.1.5 fixes a bug which blocked the app from renaming MP3 converted files to .RAW and fixes transcoding when audio format changes.

Of course, all these improvements are part of all desktop clients, so no matter if you’re running Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X, you should deploy the update as soon as possible. As you could easily guess by reading the above lines, there are no visual changes part of this release, as most improvements have been made under the hood and come to enhance performance and stability.

Overall, this update clearly comes in handy to many users, so make sure you click the download links below to download VLC Media Player 2.1.5 right now and get these improvements on your PC as well.
