I am a big fan of VLC player. When it comes to playing videos on Windows, Mac, Linux and now Android it’s the best all round player and will play just about anything you can throw at it. Today version 2.0.4 of VLC has been released and it includes  a number of fixes and playback improvements. The main changes seem to be fixes for Blu-Ray and DVD Playback plus a new UI for the Mac version.

Well worth downloading this version.


2.0.4 is a major update that fixes a lot of regressions of the 2.0.x branch of VLC.

2.0.4 introduces an important number of fixes and improvements for all playback, notably for Blu-Ray, DVD, HLS, Ogg and MKV files; but also for Youtube, Vimeo, Koreus and Soundcloud.
2.0.4 adds Opus codec support, including multichannel ones and streams, and MSS playback through DMO libraries.
2.0.4 fixes numerous issues, including audio device selection, Qt and Mac OS interface, security issues and Windows wallpaper mode…
With faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware and the ability to open more formats, notably professional, HD and 10bits codecs, 2.0 was a major upgrade for VLC.
2.0.4 fixes around a hundreds of bugs, and adds more than 300 commits on top of 2.0.3.
