Là một phần mềm nguồn mở, VLC Media player có thể chạy trên nhiều loại hệ điều hành. VLC có thể chơi nhiều loại định dạng kèm theo tiện ích ghi đĩa DVD. Đặc biệt, phần mềm này có thể chơi đĩa ngay trong định dạng ISO (định dạng lưu trữ CD, DVD trên ổ cứng) mà không cần đĩa thực. Người dùng VLC cũng có thể xem ngay file flash FLV trên trang chia sẻ video như YouTube mà không cần chuyển đổi.

Hiện tại, VLC đã có phiên bản di động và bạn có thể chuyển cả đĩa phim DVD mình yêu thích trong chuyến du lịch.

VLC Player là một chương trình chơi media rất chi là "đỉnh", hoàn toàn miễn phí và đang được hơn 58 triệu người trên toàn thế giới sử dụng. Đơn giản là bởi vì nó hỗ trợ hầu hết các định dạng codec hiện nay và sở hữu 1 tính năng cũng khá là "vãi lúa", đó là chơi được những video đã bị hư hỏng, hoặc thiếu 1 số part nào đó. Nói chung tính năng này của VLC được gọi đại khái là "chơi được phần nào của video thì hay phần đó"

VLC 1.1.8 and anti-virus software

End of support for VLC 0.8.6 series
2008-10-26
The VideoLAN team ceases all form of support for VLC media player 0.8.6-bugfix tree.

Effective immediately, there will be no more security and critical fixes for VLC 0.8.6. Binary releases of the 0.8.6-bugfix branch had already stopped as of July 2008.

VLC media player 0.9.4 and Call for Windows developers
2008-10-07
We present you with VLC media player 0.9.4, the latest increment of our 0.9 series. This release brings Windows users all the 0.9.3 enhancements and fixes (please see our call for Windows developers below) as well as fixing a few more bugs for the other platforms.
Binary packages for Mac OS X and Windows, as well as source code tarballs are available for download.
Help is available, as usual, in many places:

We'd like to thank all our contributors, testers and users around the world for their support and help making this release possible.

We are putting out a call for NEW Windows developers. At the moment, our Windows-port is sorely missing some much needed love from a true Windows developer. Our team has been without a Windows developer for several months now, which is blocking us from supporting our largest usergroup in the manner we want to. We are therefore looking for developers to help our team in the areas of debugging crashes, Direct X, A/V capturing, ActiveX and Windows integration, so we can hopefully resume supporting our largest group of users in the best possible way. If we are unable to find new developers, new versions of VLC media player for Windows might become less frequent and severely out of sync with the Linux and Mac OS X versions.

So, no donations for work on the Windows-port and no "opportunities"-emails, for Windows we only require: Developers, Developers, Developers !!!!!

VLC media player at IBC 2008
2008-09-17
IBC 2008 is the 2nd largest conference and exhibition on Broadcasting technology in the world. Though VLC media player does not have a stand (terribly expensive), it is used on many stands by the attending companies. As every year, several of the VLC media player developers were present on the floor and Derk-Jan Hartman made a photo report showing some of the uses, by companies like: HP, Cisco, Anystream, Fraunhofer, BBC and many smaller companies.
It is the industries 'dirty little secret' you could say. Much of the IPTV based work starts by testing the IPTV streams with VLC media player. New features are sometimes even implemented in VLC media player for internal development, and then once it works, the engineers write a new program based on their experiences, which they deliver to their customers. However sometimes VLC media player even makes it into the endproduct. Big name HP clearly uses VLC media player in this product of theirs.

Director of École Centrale Paris has signed the authorization to release all the VideoLAN components under the GPL.

See the new vlc at the Linux Expo in Paris
2001-01-31
vlc has been forked into two branches: stable (0.2.0, codenamed Onatopp) and unstable (0.2.50, codenamed Urumov). Unstable has a lot of new interesting features.

Changed web server
2001-01-20
We have moved the web site to our brand new IBM server. Please let us know if anything goes wrong on the web pages.

VideoLAN on a floppy
2000-12-07
For our beta-tests campaign on our local network, we have created a boot floppy allowing non-Linux users to boot off the floppy and load the vlc through an NFS mountage. It rocks!

New beta-test campaign!
2000-12-06
VideoLAN is not vlc. It's a whole network solution; we are testing again, on our LAN, as many improvements have been done to the three part of the project ( videolan server, vlan solution, client ) since we last tested it. We expect about 50 to 100 beta-testers. See the test section if you are a student in the Residence of the Ecole Centrale.

For rh7.0 users ...
2000-11-22
Redhat 7.0 users may have difficulties to build the vlc, as the version included in rh7.0 isn't a stable one. We advice you either to take the rpm or to downgrade to gcc 2.95

Release: vlc 0.1.99i
2000-08-27
A new version of the VideoLAN client fixes a few display bugs, we now have field images support and the motion compensation isn't buggy any more. Check the download section.

The moron of the week: Sam
2000-08-16
Sam wrote a buggy Makefile which prevented code to be compiled with optimizations. Now that this issue has been fixed, we got a 40% speed increase!

New TODO list
2000-08-11
We did a TODO list for the 0.2.0 release. People wanting to help might pick up ideas from this list.

Release: vlc 0.1.99f

We are the 12th and vlc 0.1.99d was just released. Check the download section!

Beta tests pre-release!
2000-06-15
The client is being pre-released today! Though the full network solution is not available yet, it already lets you watch your favorite DVD with Linux!

Screenshots online
2000-06-01
Some screenshots have been put online so that people know VideoLAN isn't vaporware :)

More beta-tests
2000-05-29
A beta-test campaign will take place on the VIA network this week.

New web site announcing release
2000-03-23
We're getting closer to a release, and we are preparing the web site for featuring dowloads and bug fixes.

Added a list of unencrypted DVDs
2000-02-27
Most DVDs are encrypted, but some are not. To encourage this, we provide a list of known unencrypted DVDs. Any body can tell us 'Hey, this cool DVD is unencrypted'!

VideoLAN thanks all visitors at the Linux Expo
2000-02-04
We would like to thank all the visitors who showed interest in our project at the Linux Expo in Paris. Pictures of our stand will soon be available.

VideoLAN is going OpenSource!
2000-01-28
We got almost all the authorizations in order to distribute the VideoLAN components under the General Public License. Our school director still needs to sign one paper.

More performance increase
2000-01-24
Our new custom video decoder gives us a 50% speed increase. We now can play DVDs at full framerate on a Celeron 366 using framebuffer output, which makes the vlc the fastest available software DVD player under Linux.
According to Meuuh, there're still many improvements that can be done.

Presentation day photos available
2000-01-21
Some photos of the presentation day are available on VIA's website:

VideoLAN will be at the Linux Expo in Paris
2000-01-05
Come to see VIA and the VideoLAN team at the Linux Expo in Paris. A map can be found here: http://www.via.ecp.fr /assoce/linuxexpo.jpeg.

DVD, BeOS and framebuffer support")
1999-12-18
The videolan client now suports the Linux framebuffer output, and has been ported to BeOS.
Moreover, the mini-server now can emit a TS stream directly from a DVD drive.

Presentation day
1999-12-10
A presentation day will take place on January the 21st, 2000. Everyone interested in the project is welcome to come and see it working.
Find out more here!

Beta-test has begun!
1999-12-08
A large scale beta-test period has just begun. Several members of the VideoLAN team have started testing the VLAN solution now that the vlanbridge works. All students of the Ecole Centrale are welcome to test the client with us, providing they have Linux and don't mind losing the Windows network neighbourhood for the entire duration of the beta test.

Presentation day
1999-11-16
A presentation day will take place in january 2000 at the Ecole Centrale, in Paris. We expect to show you our full MPEG2 solution. Find out more when the date has been chosen.

New website
1999-11-15
The website has been updated. It had been about one year since nothing had changed here (we were too busy coding *g*). Expect to find here as much as we are allowed to give away in a few weeks, starting from screenshots or hopefully more.

Huge performance increase on the vlc
1999-10-22
Thanks to Polux, who rewrote the YUV transformation in the vlc using MMX assembly, a mere P2-300 can now display about 12fps of MPEG2 video.
