VLC 2.0.5

VideoLAN and the VLC development team present the sixth version of "Twoflower", a minor update that improves the overall stability.
Notable changes include improved reliability for MKV file playback, fixed MPEG2 audio and video encoding and resolved potential security issues in HTML subtitle parser and AIFF demuxer.

Changes between 2.0.4 and 2.0.5:

 * Fix DVB-S delivery system detection

Audio Output:
 * Fix playback initial synchronization with PulseAudio
   (however similar bugs in PulseAudio version 2.0 and later still exist)
 * Fix file output bug affecting floating point on big endian systems

 * Fix crash with some embedded subtitle fonts
 * Fix buffer overflow in HTML subtitles parser
 * Fix koreus lua parser
 * Improve reliability for RTSP streams sent by some IP cameras
 * Fix division by 0 in AIFF demuxer
 * Fix some MKV crashes when ordered editions have empty or broken links
 * Fix SWF potential crash on malformed files.

Video filters:
 * Fix crash in Freetype with embedded fonts
 * Fix wrong aspect ratio in some cases

 * Fix Mpeg-2 audio and video encoders initialization

Mac OS X:

 * Fix crash with local statistics disabled
 * Fix Time counter UI look

 * Fix https streaming

 * Fix audio and video track selection:

   incorrectly used the (moving) index of the track in the table of tracks.

   Dutch, Estonian, French, Galician, Scottish Gaelic, German, Hebrew,
   Italian, Japanese, Khmer, Malayalam, Polish, Slovak, Simplified Chinese,
