VLC 2.0 'Twoflower' media player launched by VideoLAN

VLC 2.0 is available since Saturday in the final version. This version of the famous Universal media player introduces a new rendering engine, rewritten for the occasion, with improved support for multi-core processors, partial management of Blu-ray or management of new video codecs.

Called "TwoFlower" the new VLC has been downloaded over 485 million times according to the association VideoLAN. It will be authorized to rely on a number of improvements announced by the team in charge of the project.

In the program, we find a particular video renderer rewritten, now able to take advantage of shaders on the graphics card to ensure conversion of color space and support for videos encoded with 10 bits. Rendering of subtitles is also given to the graphics card, and will occur regardless of the definition of video content being displayed.

This VLC 2.0 version also introduces new filters, especially filter noise suppression (for High Quality DeNoise hqdn3d 3D), a suppression filter of solids (gradfun), a conversion filter playback rate (inverse telecine), or a stabilization filter. It also promises support for the multi-core decoding codecs such as H.264, or Xvid WebM, which should significantly improve software performance in this area and allows VLC to catch up on this field.

The reader also benefits from an improved support for RealVideo formats and Real Format or common image formats (jpeg, png, etc..) and will now better manage FLAC, RV and Hi10p encapsulated in MKV. Professionals, VLC 2.0 also promises support for ProRes 422 and 4444, and the JPEG-2000 and DNxHD/VC-3 10-bit, a new encoder Dirac/VC-2 and the ability to accept Input SDI capture cards on Linux is also introduced. Adaptive management protocols CTS and DASH is also planned, as part of management (pictures) for Blu-ray discs. The menus are not however managed from version 2.0, which logically derives a cross on the keys needed to manage digital locks associated with this format. On OS X, however, things change (finally), with a unified window with a sidebar and choice, a look that will approximate Quicktime or iTunes.

It will also allow its adaptation on mobile devices, and supports multicore processors. This allows a more flexible decoding codecs such as H.264, or WebM Xvis. Many filters have been added to remove the image noise, solid areas or to stabilize it. VLC 2.0 is also managing the Blu-ray which is also nice feature.
