RealNetworks will be working with VideoLAN over the next few months to leverage the powerful Real toolset to improve VLC media player and other VideoLAN software.

Accordingly, with the introduction of Real's superior solutions, we will be dropping all other encoders from the streaming component of VLC media player. Additionally, to better serve our customers, we will be introducing a new VLC media player Pro application, with cutting edge streaming capabilities and the ability to play back and edit all Real video and audio formats. This new application will be available for the low low price of $30/€30. We hope you enjoy the new VLC media player!

The VideoLAN team ceases all form of support for VLC media player 0.8.6-bugfix tree.

As a consequence, it has not been possible to put sufficient efforts to ensure adequate continued quality of the 0.8.6-bugfix branch. Effective immediately, there will be no more security and critical fixes for VLC 0.8.6. Binary releases of the 0.8.6-bugfix branch had already stopped as of July 2008. The VideoLAN team will continue to provide major or security-related bug fixes for the VLC media player 0.9-bugfix branch. If you have not already upgraded to VLC version 0.9.5, please do so urgently (exploits for vulnerabilities found in older versions are widely available as of today).

We are putting out a call for NEW Windows developers. At the moment, our Windows-port is sorely missing some much needed love from a true Windows developer. Our team has been without a Windows developer for several months now, which is blocking us from supporting our largest usergroup in the manner we want to. We are therefore looking for developers to help our team in the areas of debugging crashes, Direct X, A/V capturing, ActiveX and Windows integration, so we can hopefully resume supporting our largest group of users in the best possible way. If we are unable to find new developers, new versions of VLC media player for Windows might become less frequent and severely out of sync with the Linux and Mac OS X versions.

So, no donations for work on the Windows-port and no "opportunities"-emails, for Windows we only require: Developers, Developers, Developers !!!!!

The VideoLAN Team is pleased to announce the release of VLC Skin Editor 0.7.
After more than a year of development finally the first official stable release is there.

The Skin Editor enables designers to create skins for VLC without having them to learn about XML and the internal makeup of skins2. It provides an easy-to-use WYIWYG editing interface giving full control over all of the skin's features.

Binary packages for windows, including an installer can be found at the Skin Editor page. There can also be found a build for all other operating systems for which exist a Java Runtime Environment 6 SE.

We'd like to thank all contributors and testers for having made this release possible.

IBC 2008 is the 2nd largest conference and exhibition on Broadcasting technology in the world. Though VLC media player does not have a stand (terribly expensive), it is used on many stands by the attending companies. As every year, several of the VLC media player developers were present on the floor and Derk-Jan Hartman made a photo report showing some of the uses, by companies like: HP, Cisco, Anystream, Fraunhofer, BBC and many smaller companies.
It is the industries 'dirty little secret' you could say. Much of the IPTV based work starts by testing the IPTV streams with VLC media player. New features are sometimes even implemented in VLC media player for internal development, and then once it works, the engineers write a new program based on their experiences, which they deliver to their customers. However sometimes VLC media player even makes it into the endproduct. Big name HP clearly uses VLC media player in this product of theirs.

The builds for Mac OS X Intel were still being produced on a Development Kit Intel machine from Apple. It's time to bring that machine back to Apple and as a replacement the VideoLAN team has used the donations of our users in order to purchase a new server. The original idea was to get a MacMini, but in the configuration we wanted it, we could just as well get an iMac. Which is what we did. We received the machine last week, and now it's setup, and keeping an eye on VLC for MacIntel. We would like to thank all the people who made donations very much. You people keep the project running.

There are many things that we would like to improve in VLC, but that we don't, because we simply don't have enough time. That's why we are currently looking for some help. We have identified several small projects that prospective developers could work on.
Knowledge of C and/or C++ programming will certainly be useful, but you don't need to be an expert, nor a video expert. Existing VLC developers will be able to help you on these projects. You can find the list and some instructions on the dedicated Wiki page. Don't hesitate to join us on IRC or on the mailing-lists. We are waiting for you !

Due to a bit of media attention on various websites, we have had a surge in donations the past 2 days. Almost 1,5 times our original target of EUR 900 has been donated. So finally we can afford to get us that G5 PowerMac that we needed. Perhaps there will even be some money left. Don't worry, we will spent the money very wisely, we promise. There is still lots of other hardware we would like to support one day. And of course we have our usual server, conference representation and ADC costs. So please keep being kind to us and other Free and Open Source Software projects around the world. We thank you very much.
