Lack of Manpower May Kill VLC For Mac

Via Slashdot:

plasmacutter writes “The Video Lan dev team has recently come forward with a notice that the number of active developers for the project’s MacOS X releases has dropped to zero, prompting a halt in the release schedule. There is now a disturbing possibility that support for Mac will be dropped as of 1.1.0. As the most versatile and user-friendly solution for bridging the video compatibility gap between OS X and windows, this will be a terrible loss for the mac community. There is still hope, however, if the right volunteers come forward.”

VLC is one of my favorite applications, so I’d hate to see it die. Unfortunately I have too many other things going to take on another project, especially an unpaid one, or I would get involved.
