I looked into Windows.Forms control and since no one touched that module a lot of time it looks messy. I don't use it in my project myself. I'm going to refactor it.
Also I decided to remove base assembly from solution and move all base classes it has to implementation library. Because we won't support anything other than VLC it is not necessary anymore.
More serious changes are coming soon ...

Mono support and MacOS sample

Mono support is getting closer. I've added 'mac-player' directory with sample for MacOS. In order to compile and run that thing you should install the mono runtime and use nant tool. Just take a look into draft version in repository (rev 108) ... I also need to test that code in Windows again.

For people who would like to help

There are many people who contact me using Sourceforge's Send Message feature. I'm receiving their messages but I can't answer to some of them using this feature (frankly I don't know why - there are some of delivery failures).

So it is better to use tracker for bugs or contact me directly by email. My email is zaripov{dot}rinat[at]
