I'm sorry, but I simply don't know what you're talking about.

I've told you what you need to do to get an up-to-date, reliable version of our software.

Failing that, feel free to point your copy of VLC at the URL
and watch VLC crash (without anything malicious happening).  Let's just hope that there aren't other servers out there somewhere that are less charitable.

Suit yourself...
