In VLC, interfaces are modules, which means that VLC's core can launch one, many, or no interfaces. The default GUI is based on Qt 4 for Windows and Linux, Cocoa for Mac OS X, and Be API on BeOS; but all give a similar standard interface.
Reviews For The Software
VLC media player has always been one of the things that gives you foothold in life: version by version were released and only the most sophisticated users could distinguish between them. All changes were discernible only after a very nice magnifying glass. VLC 2.0 is quite the contrary: echoing the developer, you can say that this release is 'a major upgrade for VLC'. The major new feature that the latest version of VLC Media Player has to boast is the re-written output core and modules. The internal program machinery was slightly honed down, now supporting subpicture blending in GPU. Put in layman's terms, it means that the subtitles or extra camera angles coming alongside a video can now be blended right into the picture within the player, presumably spicing it up with the hardware acceleration.
Our default media player for years, VLC has managed to stay ahead of the competition in features and performance, if not always looks, though that's easy enough to fix if you want to. VLC and its source code are maintained by the all-volunteer VideoLAN Organization.
