VLC Player 2.0 released

Filed under
Software

Just weeks after the first release candidate, the VideoLAN developers have officially released version 2.0 of the VLC media player for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. VLC media player 2.0, code-named "Twoflower", is a major reworking of the VLC application, bringing playback improvements and experimental support for playing Blu-ray discs, albeit without menus.

Internally, VLC 2.0 contains numerous enhancements, including a complete rewrite of the video core, reworked output functions to allow for blending with the GPU, and a new rendering pipeline for higher quality subtitles. These improvements should also give faster decoding on multi-core, GPU-supported or mobile hardware. The changes should also improve MKV file playback and H.264 decoding.
