VLC 4.0 sneak peek: a look at its work-in-progress new interface
VLC is an incredibly popular application, so any major user interface overhaul like this is sure to lead to a lot of bikeshedding.
Last week, we mentioned that the extremely popular open source video player VLC is getting a brand-new interface in its upcoming 4.0 release, expected to debut later this year. VLC 4.0 isn’t ready for prime time use yet—but because the program is open source, adventurous users can grab nightly builds of it to take a peek at what’s coming. The screenshots we’re about to show come from the nightly build released last Friday—20210212-0431.
