Version 4.0 of the VLC player is about to arrive loaded with news and … they are going to reach the Moon!
The VLC 4 player is one of the best known and most used all over the world and now it is going to bring new features that you will like a lot, for example, a more modern interface. They are also working on offering third party online content.
The great thing about VLC playback software is that it allows you to play any video from almost any type of file. Hence, it is one of the most used, and with the news that is about to arrive, it will gain more popularity.
VLC version 4.0 is scheduled to arrive in a few months. For now, the president of VideoLAN, Jean-Baptiste Kempf, informs that they are working to integrate more online content where there will be extensions to offer third-party content, and also the option of being able to run the VLC player on a website.
The VLC player abandons the grayscale and opts for a more modern color gamut with a rejuvenated appearance, but the focus of the news is not only on that but that the company could be shuffling a business model with advertising to face the maintenance of the software.
And there is still more. There is talk of Moviepedia project, which is still secret, and consists of building an IMDb-style database that users can edit and maintain.
To be closing, there is a curious fact that we wanted to save for last. VideoLAN is celebrating its 20th birthday and what better way to do it than leave a piece of their history on the surface of the Moon.
The team wants to install a time capsule with onboard videos of the first commercial lunar space flight to take place later this year. So much so that the company is asking users that they send their videos so that they remain all eternity on the Moon.
