VideoLAN is an excellent multimedia player with itâ€™s own plugins for playing different formats, so it doesnâ€™t need any codecs to be installed. It works great for previewing partially downloaded files too as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.
This is a bugfix release on the 0.9 branch of VLC. Notables bugfixes are:
* fullscreen behaviour on Windows with multiple screens,
* workaround bug with libxml2 >=2.7.3,
* video performance on Intel-based Macs,
* various decoders updates on Windows.
An experimental native decoder for Real Video 3.0 & 4.0 using FFmpeg has been added and many fixes happened in our Real Media demuxer. This should improve Real Media Files support on all platforms.
