VLC 4.0 is coming this year. The free and open-source, portable, cross-platform media player software and streaming media server developed by the VideoLAN project is set for an overhaul with a brand new interface redesign in the upcoming VLC 4.0 update.
VLC 4.0 which will be available for desktop operating systems will be updated to look “a bit more modern” according to the VideoLAN foundation president Jean-Baptiste Kempf.
Rumour also has it that VLC has an IMDb competitor in the work.
VLC’s developer had earlier given the world a peek at what this new interface could look like way back in February 2019 at the FOSDEM conference.
Possible VLC 4.0 UI Screenshots
Screenshots released at the time showed a modern interface that featured transparent interface elements, and modern-looking icons.
Alongside VLC 4.0, the VideoLAN team is allegedly also working to bring more online content into the software, with extensions to offer third-party videos.
Offering free ad-supported videos in the future is another possibility. As well as bringing online content into VLC.
