VLC now has a Java dependency. I give up.
So I went to install VLC in Kubuntu and find it depends on libbluray, which wants to pull in Java.
I can almost hear you saying “VLC plays Blu Ray now? Cool! Finally those MAFIAA bastards will pay for their DRM crimes! Viva la libdvdcss!”, but before you get excited, it doesn’t play any DRM’d discs, which as far as I know includes all of them. . What’s worse than useless is useless and bringing in Java. I hate desktop Java.
This is in addition to the fact that Pulseaudio support (You know, Pulseaudio, unless you’ve been living under a rock) has been broken in VLC for a very long time.
I give up, you win, no longer will I use your software. UMPlayer is better anyway.
