The VideoLAN team is excited to announce version 0.4.5 of VLC for iPaq 
familiar Linux. The VideoLAN Client is a multimedia player for MPEG, 
DVD, VCD and DivX for most operating systems.

VLC 0.4.5 is a minor maintenance release. It supports:

* DivX support (Divx on iPaq is still slow.)
* MPEG 1/2 support
* MP3 support
* Network input (udp://@:1234, rtp://@:1234, http://<site-url>)
* Local file from disk
* Brand new GTK+ interface for iPaq familiar Linux v0.6
* support for Qt/embedded
* New --iface-addr option to select which interface to use for multicast
* RTP input support,
* Fix for the LPCM decoder on big-endian machines,
* Can read streams from VLS 0.4.0, and streams with A/52 coming from the
    American television. It is still possible to read from VLC 0.3.x with
    the --vls-backwards-compat option.
