PC/OS will have the new VLC. I started getting e-mails from my users last night that they wanted VLC 0.9.3 so I spent my saturday compiling and creating a deb package, I may release the deb package. It was a rough build so if you have PC/OS OpenWorkstation all dependencies may be satisfied, under OpenDesktop they may not be so use at your own risk. Here is a screenshot of it running playing a WMV file.
