News website Protocol ran an extensive piece on the history and status of the popular open source video player VLC, and the story includes new details about the next major version of the software. Among other things, VLC 4.0 will bring a complete user interface overhaul. Further Reading VideoLAN VLC releases version 3.0 with HDR and 360-degree video "We modified the interface to be a bit more modern," VideoLAN foundation President Jean-Baptiste Kempf told the publication. Kempf had previously shown some version of a new interface about two years ago, but it's unclear at this point how much that one resembles the one the team plans to introduce with VLC 4.0. While the article doesn't list every change coming, it does outline a couple other possible directions and priorities for VLC. The VideoLAN foundation has not generally sought ways to monetize VLC, but some source of funding or revenue could help ensure long-term support for the project. To that end, Kempf said … [Read more...] about Open source video player VLC will get a new UI this year with 4.0 launch

Version 4.0 of VLC, the popular cross-platform media playing software, is planned for release in the coming months, Protocol reports . The big new feature is a redesigned interface, which VideoLAN foundation president Jean-Baptiste Kempf hopes will look “a bit more modern.” Protocol also reports that the team is working on integrating more online content into the software, as well as a new way of running VLC in a webpage. It also has an IMDb competitor in the works. VLC’s developer VideoLAN gave the world a peek at what this new interface could look like way back in February 2019 at the FOSDEM conference. Screenshots released at the time show an interface that ditches the player’s dated light grey color scheme in favor of a design featuring transparent interface elements, and modern-looking icons. “Do not worry,” Kempf jokes when presenting the images , “You can still use a command line.” Alongside VLC 4.0, the VideoLAN team is also working to bring more online content … [Read more...] about VLC 4.0 coming this year with new interface for the popular video player
Three weeks ago, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said his company would split its DVD-by-mail service into a new site called Qwikster while keeping video streaming at Netflix.com. The change seemed needlessly drastic and complicated for many users, forcing customers to be billed twice and to search for DVD and streaming content on separate websites. But now, Netflix customers will never have to hear the word Qwikster again. Customers complained about the confusing changes and Hastings apparently received the message. Hasting announced in a new blog post titled “ DVDs will be staying at netflix.com ” that Qwikster will now simply go away. “It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs,” Hastings wrote. “This means no change: one website, one account, one password in other words, no Qwikster.” Hastings had argued last month that DVDs by mail and streaming are such … [Read more...] about Netflix kills Qwikster after customers bash spinoff of DVD service
Even with its bandwidth costs, video can be more environmentally friendly than movies on DVDs, according to a research paper published Wednesday at IOP Science. The authors found that the emissions and energy consumption for DVD watching are higher altogether than for streaming video, all things considered, so ditching the plastic discs may be the most conscientious direction to take. The authors looked at several possible distribution methods for DVDs, including transporting them to stores or warehouses; repackaging them for the store or rental business in question, if necessary; and then delivering them to their final destinations. The study also accounts for the efficiency and power use of DVD playback devices, including computers and game consoles, as well as the energy consumption of watching the DVDs on monitors or televisions. Across the whole category, the researchers estimated that 1.2 billion DVDs were purchased or rented over the course of the studied year (2011), with … [Read more...] about Streaming video is better for the environment than DVDs—barely
