What works

Installing 32-bit VLC version 1.0RC4 on a clean .wine directory

Running VLC works without interface glitches. Loading some xvid file and playing it worked flawlessly with good performance. So both sound/video playback works in windowed mode.

What does not

Fullscreen caused partial screen rendering and would not exit from fullscreen.

Application prematurely exits after running for awhile, without leaving a segfault message in logs. Didn't investigate further.


What was not tested

Any other codecs or output methods. Default output method is automatic selection of available output methods. Didn't investigate further.
