VLC Wishes Everyone Merry Christmas Through an Easter Egg

Have you opened your VLC Player today? Well if not, we suggest you do. They have a hidden Easter egg which displays a new VLC icon with Santa’s hat to users.


Some users have also reported that they see the same logo in the taskbar icon, but no such luck for me on . Did you see the the logo in VLC?

We will keep looking for more Easter eggs popping up on our desktop and let you know about them as and when we see them.

    yes ! i am watching such a hat in vlc since past one week, and it is appearing in taskbar icon and status bar icon too

  • Giorgos

    Yes! I have it, both at Win7 RC x64 and Ubuntu Karmic x64.

    I find this annoying actually, I'd prefer the original. It's hard to quickly locate running tasks when icons change.

  • i’ve got it on 7, i dunno what williams complaining about, i like this one better =p
