New submitter imcdona writes: VideoLan has released VLC Media Player 3.0.14 to fix an issue affecting Window users and causing the widely-used software’s auto-updater not to launch the new version’s installer automatically. “VLC users on Windows might encounter issues when trying to auto update VLC from version 3.0.12 and 3.0.13,” VideoLan explained.”We are publishing version 3.0.14 to address this problem for future updates.”
This issue is caused by a bug introduced in the automatic updater code of VLC 3.0.12 and fixed with the release of VLC 3.0.14. Because of this bug, VLC updates are downloaded to the users’ computers, verified for integrity, but will not be installed as the auto-updater fails to launch the VLC 3.0.14 installer.
