The VideoLAN community is proud to announce the immediate availability of VLC 2.2.0 codename WeatherWax and for the first time in history on all supported platforms simultaneously (see related press release).

In addition to the release of the desktop version of VLC media player 2.2.0, a new version of the mobile ports is also available on their respective stores:

This release, in addition to the usual improvements and bug fixes, includes fresh new features. The most notable ones being:

The often requested Chromecast support is not part of this release but will be added in the upcoming 3.0.0 that is expected later this year.

Mobile versions should be upgraded directly from their respective store, on desktop you’ll have to download the new version manually or wait for the automatic update that is expected to be rolling out starting next week.

More than ever, VLC plays everything… everywhere!

VLC and Mirrorbits at SCALE 13X

The thirteenth annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE 13X) will take place on February 19-22, 2015 at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport (LAX). It’s without doubt one of the greatest conference related to Linux and Free Software that I attended in the USA for the past few years.

Three members of the VideoLAN team will hold a booth this year again for the duration of the event to demo the latest improvements and platform supported by VLC and of course, discuss with the visitors!

I will also be a speaker at this conference and talk about VideoLAN, VLC and its distribution infrastructure on the Sunday between 11:30 and 12:30 so book the date! My talk will essentially be about VLC but I will also introduce a more personal project: mirrorbits, that I already teased on my blog.

If you’re in California at the time and did not register yet, use the promo code SPEAKER to get 50% off your entrance ticket. For the others, my talk will be streamed live directly from the event website.

Anyway if you’re around, come and say hi!

Blu-Ray libraries releases

Blu-Ray libraries

Today, we release a new version of all our Blu-Ray libraries:

Those releases feature minor features improvements, and numerous bug fixes.

The biggest changes lie on the BD-J support, Java 8 support, fonts management and the raw access to devices and filesystem.

Our BD-J support should now be mostly working for most disks.

The filesystem changes is preparing the development of ISO support in those libraries.

Finally, a lot of code for portability has been merged between those libraries!


You can download those on the right pages:

Have fun!
