Today, VideoLAN is publishing the 3.0.17 release of VLC, which adds support for a few formats, improves adaptive streaming support, fixes some crashes and updates many third party libraries. More details on the release page.
We are happy to announce a major update of VLC for iOS, iPadOS and tvOS adding a new video playback interface, support for NFS and SFTP network shares and major improvements to the media handling especially for audio. See the press release.
libbluray and related libraries, libaacs and libbdplus, have new releases, focused on maintenance, minor improvements, and notably new OSes and new java versions compatibility. See libbluray, libaacs and libbdplus pages.
Since its very early days in 1996, VideoLAN software is written in programming languages of the C family (mostly plain C with additions in C++ and Objective-C) with the notable exception of its port to Android, which was started in Java and recently transitioned to Kotlin. VLC does not use the log4j library on any platform and is therefore unaffected by any related security implications.
We are pleased to release version 3.4.0 of the VLC version for the Android platforms.
Still based on libVLC 3, it revamps the Audio Player and the Auto support, it adds bookmarks in each media, simplifies the permissions and improves video grouping. See our Android page.
