2.2.x Features & Highlights: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/releases/2.2.1.html
Installation and uninstallation, standard audio and video playback, most standard functions (automatic subtitle loading, changing aspect ratio, changing the volume in the toolbar, etc.)
What does not
Downloading subtitles using the VLSub plugin, as no search results using either available method are returned (this is a fault in the plugin itself and not Wine).
Opening certain dialog boxes, such as the VLSub plugin, has a noticeable delay and causes graphical corruption in any video being played.
The video is not quite able to sync with the window movement if the window is moved around with video files, even if paused. This does not occur with audio files. This is not as noticeable using a virtual desktop.
What was not tested
Changing preferences (applying custom skins, etc.)
The default wineprefix was used to install VLC. The "Do you want to continue playing from where you left off?" message may or may not appear when opening a recently played file. While opening certain dialog boxes (such as Media and Codec Info) has a delay, this is only on the first attempt. Subsequent attempts do not have a delay.
