VLC 4 by 2021 with a new interface
The most famous and used multimedia player in the world is about to renew itself: VLC 4.0 will arrive within the year and will bring with it a change in terms of UI. No revolution, it would not be necessary, but a new polished interface as underlined by Jean-Baptiste Kempf, President of the VideoLAN foundation that takes care of the project.

We have modified the interface to make it a little more modern.

VLC 4.0 will come with a new interface

A taste was already provided in 2019 with the publication of a document that took place at the FOSDEM event dedicated to developers. Here are a couple of screenshots to help you understand what will change with transparent elements almost everywhere. In any case, it cannot be ruled out that the layout has changed further during the race.

Those who use VLC as the default multimedia player for video or audio content will not struggle to see the changes compared to the current version .

The other innovations implemented by VideoLAN

The distribution of the 4.0 release is not the only project in the pipeline: there is also the launch of a player Unpublished web that can be started and managed within browsers based on WebAssembly and JavaScript instead of the old plug-in and an alternative platform to IMDb where you can find information on cinema and TV series currently known internally with the code name Moviepedia Project. Also not to be ruled out is the arrival of a free streaming service supported by advertising, something similar to what is offered by Plex among others.

The first version of VLC Media Player was published on February 1st 2001. To celebrate the twenty years since the anniversary VideoLAN has decided to send a time capsule to the Moon containing videos created by the community and open material source. The site linked to the initiative is LunarTimeCapsule.Space.
