1.12 I don't have access to the GUI anymore
-------------------------------------------
If you change the default interface module in the preferences menu to a non
GUI module (ie. to a command line interface) and then save the configuration,
the only way to get VLC to show a GUI again is to run it directly from the
command line.
For instance on Windows, you need to open a dos command box, go to the
directory where you installed VLC (usually
c:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VideoLAN Client) and then type "vlc --intf win32"
You will then be able to modify the configuration again and save it.

2.15 I have just upgraded to VLC 0.4.5, and now I don't have any sound
with the streams coming from the VLS !
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a known problem. VLC 0.4.5 and later are now compliant to general
usage regarding A/52 sound, and the new behavior is incompatible with the
previous one. VLS version 0.4.0 and later now fixes this problem. If, for
a reason or another, you wish to keep VLS 0.3.3, you can still read those
streams if you launch VLC (0.4.5 or later) with --vls-backwards-compat.
