On what operating systems can run VLC media player ?

You need to install the unicode package to make it work.

but with major issues due to the lack of a correct DirectX support.

The team supports the Debian version. However Ubuntu, Gentoo, OpenSuse,
Mandriva, Fedora Core are often tested by the team,
