This may expose the system to the exploits described in this article: VLC Media Player 2.0.1 closes security holes
As a precaution, I just uninstalled, rebooted, downloaded a new copy from http://www.videolan.org/ and reinstalled the player. But the Firefox plugin continues to show as version 2.0.0
I've therefore disabled the Firefox plugin via the Add-ons manager which you can access by hitting CTRL+SHIFT+A.
