I use both VLC, and Amarok with phonon-vlc, (on Arch; since phonon-vlc 
emerged around June or August) and it's been working fine the whole time.

(Except that Amarok with any backend, for me, (-xine, -gstreamer, -vlc) 
used to sometimes crash around song-change and now sometimes just does 
weird-but-predictable things around song-change.  I think that's unrelated.)
