In late November, VideoLAN released
libavcodec module (VLC’s built-in decoding engine). A subsequent version 2.2.8 fixed a single bug.
VLC 2.2.7 also fixed a crash in the app’s update mechanism, which may make auto-updating from older versions of VLC to version 2.2.8 fail. If that’s true for you, download the latest version from the VideoLAN Web site. (Free, 35.1 MB,)
