Some open source projects are these days spreading rapidly among the "common folks" - such folks that couldn't give a rats ass 'bout the meaning of "GPL" or "BSD" and soforth - successes like Open Office, Firefox and VLC. I now regulary meet very much not-computer-savvy people who are happy to have found VLC as it "just plays" everything that's thrown at it.

However, support for WavPack are missing. And looking at this thread at the VLC forum it seems the devs over there are happy to implement it... only if somebody else write the code. However, if somebody is able I think that it could be worth it, as beeing supported by VLC might help the widespread of the format...

I noticed today that a new test build for Windows is available that supports WavPack.

VLC changelog:

Wavpack is in 0.9 svn - not 0.8.6
