Release Notes: The Linux and BSD/OS ports now support VCDs, and the MacOS X port supports all DVDs through the latest libdvdcss version. The video decoder can now decode 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 MPEG streams. A lot of bugs were fixed such as network support under Win32, DVD subtitles in network mode, aspect ratio in XVideo mode, and stdin stream input.
Release Notes: A new faster video decoder based on walken's mpeg2dec, IP Multicast support, a network HTTP input to read streams directly from a Web server, and a working MacOS X port with encrypted DVD and overlay support were added. Altivec optimizations have been made on PowerPC G4 processors (GNU/Linux, and MacOS X).
Release Notes: Subtitles were activated in overlay mode. A few minor stability bugs were fixed, and various compilation fixes for BSD/OS, Solaris and OpenBSD were done.
Release Notes: This bugfix release solves major issues in DirectX audio output, XVideo video output, DVD input, and fixes various segfaults in ac3dec, spudec, input_dvd, input_ps, and intf_rc. The program was also ported to BSD/OS, including DVD decryption.
Release Notes: All known important bugs and almost all critical bugs were fixed. Speed and overall DVD playback smoothness were enhanced. LPCM audio stream and MPEG ES video streams are now supported. DirectX video support was fixed, and QNX audio and video support was added.
Release Notes: Network support was fixed, DVD support was still improved and the Gnome and Gtk+ interfaces were merged. Accelerated MMX, SSE and 3D Now! routines were added. Also, the Windows port is now functional.
Release Notes: Fullscreen mode for the X11 and XVideo output plugins was added. The QNX and FreeBSD targets were fixed and the DVD and network input was enhanced.
Release Notes: A fix for a problem that prevented reading of some DVDs, fixes for a BeOS bug and a MacOS X bug causing vlc to crash on startup, and a new ability to build modules directly in the application (resulting in slightly improved performance).
Release Notes: BeOS CSS decryption, IFO parsing, and XVideo video output were fixed. The program should no longer segfault when compiled with gcc 3.0pre or versions of gcc shipped with the latest RedHat distributions. Icons were updated for Linux, BeOS, and MacOS X.
Release Notes: DVD support was enhanced with on-the-fly title, chapter, subtitle, and language selection for the Gnome, Gtk+, and BeOS interfaces. Experimental Mac OS X support, an XVideo video output, and network input were added.
