    When Johannes mentioned a VLC update (version 3.0.18) on Thursday's Stormcast, I started VLC and let it check for updates: it reported that I had the latest version. But I knew I didn't.

    Saturday I checked again, still no updates. So I started Wireshark, let VLC do an update check, and saw this:

    An HTTP request is made to host update.videolan.org path /vlc/status-win-x64. The reply says 3.0.16 is the latest version.

    That's why I get no updates when VLC does the check.

    The same is true for 32-bit VLC.

    I informed the Videolan team.

    Update: the version files are updated:
