Is VLC Media Player "safe"?
I used to have VLC mediaplayer and thought it was one of the best video players i've used but after just resetting my pc and having just cleared up a nasty trojan (thanks to khazars from this site) I am wary of downloading anything which could contain malware with its package. So is anyone aware that VLC Mediaplayer contains malware or is it defintely safe?

Cheers, Rob

I've never had any problems with it. They seem to be very resistant to commercialization.

The Mac and Linux/Unix versions are rated pretty good - I didn't find anything on the Win version.

Thanks for your quick replies, I'm going to download the vlc-0.8.2-test2 version for windows now.
