Videolan pulled 3.0.15 from their website without any details or even noting the fact that they pulled it. That's not great form, but hey, what do you want for free?

For those of us who have 3.0.15 installed (and have a compatible OS for which its not broken), will there be any issues with upgrading to the next version or uninstalling now or after the next upgrade? It would be nice to know, as there is at least one report in their forum about uninstall failures.

I totally understand that testing is a big challenge and a lot of work, but the lack of info coming from Videolan about the problems with the current release and what to do next for everyone with it installed is disappointing. Testing is a lot of work, but good communication is just editing a text file.

Let's hope an update will come soon :)

I agree, confirms bug that I've seen on Win 8.1. Also, for completeness, works OK on Windows 7 32-bit

Runs fine on Windows 10 X64, but crashes on Windows 8.1 X64.

Looks like VLC 3.0.15 immediately stops (crashes) after loading video file to play. Reinstalled 3.0.14 and things are back to normal.
