The LPCM decoder outputs really small samples which aren't accepted properly by the macosx coreaudio resampler, causing VLC to not output any sound with many DVD's. A test sample that shows this effect on the mac is the Madonna clip.

Description: Fix up text subtitles
Currently the subtitle dialog boxes are out of date and not really useable. Also we need more files to test and verify the current support, and the rendering of the subs should be sped up quite a bit (issue with outlining?) Other issues should mostly be dealt with after the vout systems are improved.

Implement a system to: <br />

It would be cool if VLC supported something like a protocol rollover mechanism, much like WM server has as well. Multicast, UDP, TCP, HTTP etc.
However, how spec compliant can this be?
