[News] VLC Media Player Runs Competition, Blender Merger?

Hash: SHA1

VLC Media Player Skins2 Contest announced

,----[ Quote ]
| The VideoLAN Project developers have announced the start of the Skins2 
| Contest for the VLC media player. VLC (formerly called VideoLAN Client) is a 
| free open source cross-platform multimedia player for various audio and video 
| formats. The contest will run until the 29th of May and a public vote will be 
| held from the 29th of May to the 1st of June. The VLC developers point out 
| that they reserve the right to veto inappropriate submissions.     


The Blender Model Repository and BlenderNation: open-source merger?

,----[ Quote ]
| As some might know, Blender is an open-source 3D content creation 
| application - it’s cross-platform, a pioneer in the free 3D application 
| market, and I use it. Not only do I use it, love it, and hang out in the 
| #blenderchat IRC channel on freenode, I host the Blender Model Repository, 
| taking over from Andrew Kator long time ago when he suffered legal issues. 
| It’s been running stable for the past year or so, every so often getting new 
| model submissions, and users finding it a useful resource.      



[Blender] Durian Project Announcement

| concept-girl-black.jpegYes, it’s about time! The third open movie project had
| been lined up to start much sooner, but more urgent work (Blender 2.5 coding)
| forced it into the future. After all, it’s the purpose of the team here in
| Amsterdam to test and improve the 2.5x versions significantly!
| Now we intend to start up September 1, delivering a result around March/April
| 2010.



VLC 0.9.9: The best media player just got better

,----[ Quote ]
| If you've yet to try VLC, do so. Whether you just want to play media files or
| also want to convert them, VLC can handle just about anything you throw at
| it. When all other media players fail, whether on Windows, Linux, or the Mac,
| VLC will almost always deliver.


VLC. The swiss army knife of video viewing.

,----[ Quote ]
| Windows users are especially familiar with this. You come across a video file
| that you wish to see and click on it. Waiting in anticipation for the visual
| candy to delight your eyes you are disappointed to be greeted with a message
| similar to this. Codec not installed. Often the program offers to search for
| the missing codec and install it for you. Then comes the real heart breaker.
| The codec is not to be found!


VLC goes to nine point two

,----[ Quote ]
| Sometimes I get the feeling that I only know about 5% of what VLC can do.
| Everyone knows it's a dependable, free, cross-platform media player. But read
| through the release notes for the latest version, 0.9.2, and you will see a
| dizzying array of server, network streaming, and conversion functions, most
| of which I have never even touched -- and the new VLC exposes a lot more of
| that functionality.
| [...]
| But even with those quibbles, VLC is easier to use and does a more consistent
| job of exposing its functionality than either MPlayer of Xine. VLC's
| interface does not get in your way, and you do not have to read a tutorial to
| get started with it. It just works. Add to that the fact that VLC is robust
| on all three major desktop OSes, and you have a winner.


Slick VLC Media Player Out In a New Version

,----[ Quote ]
| In the new version, VLC Media Player remains small and lightweight enough to
| carry on a USB thumb drive. There is a full features list for every supported
| platform here. Under input formats and decoders on the list, you can get a
| good sense of the vast number of formats that VLC Media Player supports,
| inlcuding many that proprietary players don't support. (The Ogg format is
| supported.)


VLC gets a new look on Windows and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| After two years in development, VLC, the universal media player, has moved
| from the 0.8.x versions to version 0.9.2. The release, named "Grishenko", is
| available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and other operating systems, is
| available to download from the Videolan web site. The most visible new
| feature in the Windows and Linux versions is a new user interface. The new
| interface uses Qt4, replacing the previous wxWidgets-based interface as the
| default interface and allowing for better internationalisation and a richer
| set of graphical controls.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
