I'll try to find (I don't have many DVDs home)

Works on latest build for me too.

In 0.9, how did we do?

Watching some House MD .avi, VLC goes and stays around 80MB of Ram
(Windows Seven), seeking around 15 times from start to end makes it grow
around 3.7MB and stay around this.
Seeking a lot on the Matrix MKV (the XviD+AAC one, not the RV9) makes it
grow around 400kB.
Maybe xxcv can comment.

Btw, unrelated, but when I stop I keep staying at 28MB of RAM (instead
of 11MB at start)

Deinterlacing, IIRC.

Ok. I am uploading more boring MKV samples to jones, if some people are
not completly fed up by MKV...

Well, are linked mkv still popular?
