Will get a modern look with VLC 4.0
According to the information described by VideoLAN president Jean-Baptiste Kempf, owner of VLC, it is the most important goal to make it possible to play VLC on web pages with a redesigned interface by giveing the player a modern look. At the FOSDEM conference in 2019, the company presented the first designs for what the new interface would look like.
During the presentation, Kempf presented the design, which included a light gray color scheme, transparent interface elements and modern-looking icons, to the likes, “Don’t worry, you can still use a command line” made the participants laugh.
On the other hand, the firm continues its work on creating databases for movies with Moviepedia, an IMDb-style project. While there is no exact release date for when VLC 4.0 might come, the firm’s presentation in 2019 provides more details on the new features.
