VLC Media Player 2.0 'Twoflower' released


Recommended Posts

VLC reaches 2.0

VLC 2.0 "Twoflower" is a major new version of our popular media player.

With faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware and the ability to open more formats, notably professional, HD and 10bits codecs, 2.0 is a major upgrade for VLC.

Twoflower has a new rendering pipeline for video, with higher quality subtitles, and new video filters to enhance your videos.

It supports many new devices and BluRay Discs (experimental).

Completely reworked Mac and Web interfaces and improvements in the other interfaces make VLC easier than ever to use.

Twoflower fixes several hundreds of bugs, in more than 7000 commits from 160 volunteers.

OS X gets a snazzy new interface, whilst the Windows version still looks dull. WMP12 looks better.

It seems better, but still struggles with some HD MKVs and 1080p content as well.

Dammit, that's what I was hoping to be fixed. MPCHC plays HD content just fine.

Can this version be installed silently (ie. for deployment)? 1.x had trouble in this regard and wouldn't install silently.
