Second VLC for WinRT release

A new release

Now, you should see a new release of VLC for WinRT on the Windows Store: 0.1.0.

This is the second major release of this application. While still beta, it should be way more stable than the previous one.

The major changes are:

  • using libVLC 2.2.0 core,
  • redesign of the interface,
  • huge performance improvements,
  • use of Winsock for networking instead of WinRTsock,
  • use of Windows 8.1 widgets,
  • move the interface code to Universal to prepare Windows Phone 8.1 port.

To get more stability, the performance improvements and the preparation to port for WP8.1, we had to move the application to Windows 8.1-only.

Be careful, this is still not as perfect and stable as the desktop release.


While this release is still x86-only, we've made great advances on the ARM port. More news soon.

0.9.9 is released

Hello people,

As said on the main website, VLC 0.9.9 has been released.

Many bugfixes and native real video decoding (no need to put dll in the plugins/folder).

Profit, this is probably the latest version of the 0.9.9 series.

VLC media player release: 0.8.6e and coverity


We just released a new stable version.

This version is ONLY focused on security vulnerabilities and minor bugfixes.


0.9.0 version is in the work, and an alpha preview is due soon. :D


I am quite unpleased with Coverity, that does a free scanning of open source projects. We applied many times for VLC, and they always replied that they would do it soon, but they actually never done it. :'(


This is a bit bad, because VLC is one important Open Source project, and more used that some of the projects they already scan...

Anyway, this is a bit problematic, because we need help in finding security issues and do some auditing of the VLC media player code. And since there are web plugins on VLC, this is dangerous.

VLC media player 0.8.6d release


The VideoLAN Team is pleased to announce the release of VLC media player 0.8.6d.

This release is aimed at fixing security vulnerabilities in the Active X plugin and the the Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) library which affect VLC media player 0.8.6c and lower. For more technical details see our advisory:

Improvements in this release include better Video Output compatibility on Mac OS X and Apple Remote support on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Please note that Mac OS X 10.3.9 is no longer supported.

The full list of changes can be found on our tracking site:

We strongly recommend all users to update to this new version and as always to only download from the main VideoLAN website.

Bad Sites

As usual, several sites (,,,,,, have linked to or still offer (,, early and broken development versions from before the official release was made available.

Those binaries (done by your servitor) weren't good release. This was clear and written in a README file. I just want to tell them how much they don't help us. Those guys are really a pain.

Bad, but less sites

Moreover, I am bored of that does almost the same, and that doesn't use our link to the files, but either:

  • mirror the exe (and forget to update it) and we can't count our download number
  • link directly to our main FTP and don't use the links that help us mirroring and kill our webserver...


Enjoy this release,

The VideoLAN Team
