This one is an awesome step forward!
Next step for ffmpeg is to get RealMedia support inside ;)

Looks nice, but I don't see volume controls anywhere.

It's also much harder to add couple of files to playlist now.
Time seeking problem for m2v files wasn't solved and I don't think
it's in your todo list. I'm playing musicvideos in m2v format and
playing time is always incorrect for thousands of files.

I saw that first step to keep window size after playlist entry change
(first movie ends, second one starts) was done in CVS but this release
doesn't feature any improvements of that kind.

New Preferences are awesome but you probably need to change button
title "Advanced..." to "Back to Simple" or just "Simple..." after
pushing it.

Anybody to create Media Player Classic (http://www.gabest.org/mpc.php)
style interface? Is it possible to change hotkeys in skins to
completely simulate another player? I'd like to see Media Player 6.x
series behaviour.

I've got new box some time ago. It's Compaq Evo D510 ePC.
It has P4 2.4ghz processor and integrated Intel video/audio/network.
The box is very compact and small but VLC started to lock up for 4-5
seconds each ~40 seconds of playing. I'm going to try 0.4.x branch if
you want, but that happens to 0.5.0, 0.5.1 and latest 0.6.1. This
doesn't happen anywhere else.

I'm thinking about other things - if I'll come up with some other
suggestions I'll post it here for sure since I'm reading that list on
daily basis.

Keep up the great work, go on and beat MPlayer :)
