At least to me that would make sense, given the number of times I've helped
users troubleshoot that particular problem.

Latest stable VLC 2.0.7 on OS X simply crashes with a seg fault for all
yuv444p videos I generated with x264 and recent ffmpeg, but that's probably
for the VLC people to investigate.
Thanks for the info though! That clears up a few points.
