Download Squad warns that VLC for Mac has no more developers!!
Quick! Are you a Mac programmer? An open source advocate? Well, VLC has a job for you! You’ve always wanted to lead up an entire development branch of the world-famous VideoLAN Client, right?
It seems, through gradual atrophy and a steep learning curve that prevents developers from just ‘jumping right in’, VLC for Mac now has zero developers; none, nada, zilch. Looking at the time stamps on the VLC forum, development for the Mac has been weak since at least May this year, with bugs and Mac-specific improvements going untended due to lack of MacOS X programmers.
So this is my call to all you developers out there – don’t give up on us Mac users or on VLC.
