Please, stop using the software, and please don't update.

Who are you to know what the average user wants and needs?

What is WRONG with you?
Complaining about a free software.

If you don't like it, don't use it. If you don't like it, fork it.

Whoever OK'd that decision should be fired from the project as they have proven their ignorance and incompetence through this ridiculous decision. Same goes for the VLC WMV team. I'm surprised WMV files even play with how bad your developers have been on that rather ubiquitous format.

Fired from an open source project?
Are you crazy or just plainly stupid?
