VLC media player, version 0.8.6 does work on Vista. However, depending
on the graphic drivers, you need to change the Default Video output
module to keep Aero up. (More information in the forum of videolan).

We are waiting a bit for the stabilisation of the main graphic drivers
to know what exactly to do. Next version of VLC should have some
improvement for Vista.

As long as VLC media player is shipped with a lot of codecs, it is still
very interesting, as you don't need to download those codecs. Moreover,
the streaming/transcoding features are still features you don't have
with all versions of Vista.

Thanks for your interest in VLC media player,
