The popular open source media player, VLC media player version 0.9.2 is released. Code named Grishenko this new release brings lot of new functionality and brings a new interface for Windows and Linux.
What’s Cool in this release, currently 0.9.2 release notes page is not available because of the high traffic, you can veiw 0.9.0 page.
For video playback, new protocols, new codecs, new demuxers and many bug-fixes have been added to support more formats.
For audio playback, cover art and metadata support (and editing) have been vastly enhanced. It can play audio when the playback speed is changed.
For the developers, libVLC has been simplified and improved, many bindings for many languages were added and there is a new Mac OS X Framework.
Scripts written in lua can expand VLC media player’s capabilities (read Youtube, Dailymotion URLs, fetch meta-data…)
VLC now has better support for .flv files, the earlier versions supported flv but they never allowed to skip ahead, so if you have a long file you need to see the entire file, you can’t skip, if you do it used to close immediately. This version allows you to skip ahead while playing a flash file.
