VLC will modernize its interface this year … and take on IMDb


With over 3.5 billion downloads worldwide, VLC is one of the most popular software. However, aesthetically, the software with the orange cone has not evolved so much for several years. It doesn’t bother most of the users who are only interested in the efficiency of the app but others have been waiting for a change for a long time. Good news, VLC 4.0 will refresh the interface.

A more modern design

Without going into details, Jean-Baptiste Kempf, president of the VideoLAN association, told the site Protocol during an interview on the history of VLC that an update will soon modernize the interface of the software.
Version 4.0, scheduled for this year, should appeal to those hoping for a design more in line with the rest of our applications.

Other novelties in development

Other new functions could soon land on VLC. Among them, the possibility of playing videos directly from your browser thanks to a new plugin using Webassembly and JavaScript. Ultimately, VideoLAN would also like to create its competitor open source IMDb history of storing as much information as possible on films and series thanks to the contribution of its community.
