VLC media player intro and news
We will quickly go through the history and organization of the VLC media player project and the foundation behind it. Then we will look at the high- level pipeline architecture of a software media player, with containers, codecs, filters, etc. Most importantly, we will review the key new features in VLC 3.0 and ongoing work and predictions for the upcoming VLC 4.0 and future versions.
VLC lead architect
I joined the VLC media player as a student in 2003, and eventually became the lead architect for the open-source project. Since graduating from the French engineering school École Centrale Paris, I have been a system software developer for Linux/Android mobile devices, and am based in Helsinki, Finland.
