Dell issues warning on VLC Media Player

Dell has issued a warranty warning. If you are using the open source software VLC Media Player, it will void the speaker warranty in your laptop. Even having it installed will void that part of the system’s warranty.

As per the statement: “VLC has a feature that can make the audio seem louder than other players. VLC achieves this by using a process that creates hard clipping which can damage small speakers.”

Hewlett-Packard may have also warned about using the software. Others may also have issued similar statements.

You can find the warning here.
