Clarifications for Qt4 interface

According to the post that I made about Qt4 toolkit and the comments I have seen about it, here are a few clarifications.

  • Mac OS isn't concerned about that change. Cocoa and CoreAnimation will remain native.
  • Qt4 is GPL for all platforms and VLC will stay GPL for all platforms. It wasn't like that before, but it is now true.
  • On linux and Unix, both GUI, wx and Qt can still be compiled, so if you want a GTK only desktop, you can still use wxGTK. However, we only support and fix Qt GUI. So if you don't like Qt for religious reasons, you can have it otherwise.
  • On windows, only Qt interface will be shipped by default. If you need the wx dll, you can ask it for the first new versions, especially because there can be some regressions.
  • BeOS isn't concerned since the trunk doesn't compile on gcc2.95
  • Finally, some people are working on a GTK interface.

I hope that the troll will calm down.

Qt4 interface: screenshot

I know I haven't posted a lot of things lately on this very blog.

I know that the image will not fit correctly the screen, especially if you use an old browser (meaning IE6)

But still:

VideoLAN: What I have been doing lately?

Hello to everyone,

This blog has been silent for a couple of weeks. I am so sorry. Let me explain you why.

Google Summer of Code

I had to finish all the stuff about the new students, a lot of discussion, reviews and choices for GSoC. All the team trusted me on the choice, so, that was difficult. But I am very happy with everything we have come up with.

Thanks Google!

Holidays and elections

  • Two weeks ago, it was easter's week end,
  • Last week, I was in Bretagne to help for one of my friends' wedding,
  • Yesterday, I was in Paris, for the French presidential elections.

Therefore, I wasn't home enough to work and document for VLC.

0.8.6b release

As some have noticed we had a small release on VLC branch. This is going to be the latest on this branch, I think. But I had to do win32 binaries and source tarballs... We still have issues with Vista, but well, until drivers are correctly written, we cannot do what we want...

0.9.0 - Qt4

I was chasing bugfix and not really adding new features. This will change in the next few days.

GUI, ergonomics and gestures

Ergonomics

Working on VLC media player interface, I found that clicking on menus and buttons was really un-natural. Lots of people have already said that, of course.

That is why I gave a look at VLC media player Mouse Gestures.

Mouse Gestures

Most of the important code was already written by Dnumgis, but not the functional part. There was four gestures and I re-mapped them to have new actions.

Number of actions:

To ease the use of those gestures, I had decided to use only one-movements and two-movements actions, since three-movements are difficult for some people. And I decided to remove all double-movement (left-left, right-right, etc..) for the same timing reason.

So I had space for 4 x 5 - 4 = 16 actions.

New mapping:

You will find the new bindings on our wiki.
