VLC Media Player 3.0.0

,

VLC媒体播放器软件相当繁多,不过使用VLC Media Player的可能不多。它来自免费软件与开源跨平台流视频方案VideoLAN,除了可以播放绝大多数格式的本地多媒体外,还支持大量流式协议,能很好地播放网络流媒体,对付残缺AVI文件也是一绝。

作为一个开源跨平台项目,VLC Media Player支持Windows、Mac OS X和Linux、BSD的各种发行版本,几乎无所不包,源代码自然也是公开的。如果你喜欢它,可以贡献自己的时间、代码、硬件或者金钱,帮助其发展。

对了,VLC Media Player还可以用作媒体转换器,或者流媒体服务器,支持单点和多点广播,支持IPv4、IPv6网络。

Changes between 2.2.8 and 3.0.0:
——————————–
