The mainstream version number also indicates that the VideoLAN programmers are preparing for a big launch. The VLC media player 3.0.0 ("WeatherWax") is currently in the fifth edition - click to download for the image above - and provides the following major novelties:

  • Hardware acceleration has been activated for all platforms (for H.264 and H.265 encoding, both 8 and 10 bits)
  • Play 4K @ 60fps and 8K with Low (Abb) CPU Load
  • The code for the mobile expense has been merged
  • HDR and HDR tone mapping support
  • Updated audio pass-through for HD Audio codecs
  • Explore local network drives (SMB, FTP, SFTP, NFS, etc.)
  • Safer password management
  • A new subtitle engine with complex text layout and font fallback (with alternative fonts if the font does not contain the required signal) with support
  • ChromeCast support with the new framework
  • Support for new formats and codecs, such as WebVTT, AV1, TTML, HQX, 708 and Cineform
  • 360 degree video and 3D audio support, preparing for VR content
  • Updated interface on MacOS system - with some code cleanup
  • HiDPI GUI in a Windows-based environment
  • The Wayland (Graphical Display Server) experimental support is made on Linux, OpenGL has become the default

"WeatherWax" has apparently brought a number of high-profile improvements to the media engine, the application sometimes replaces its past and shortcomings, and has been designed for the future in other areas. We are watching the development for ourselves.
