Changes between 0.8.6i and 0.9.0:

———————————

Important notes:

—————-

* This release will need Windows 2000 and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), or more

recent to work correctly

* The HTTP interface is now only available on the local machine by default.

If you want to make it available from other machines, you will have to

edit the “.hosts” file.

– On UNIX/Linux, the file is in /usr/share/vlc/http/.hosts

If you’re using the old http interface, it’s located in

/usr/share/vlc/http/old/.hosts

– On Windows they are in C:Program FilesVideoLANVLChttp.hosts and

C:Program FilesVideoLANVLChttpold.hosts

– On Mac OS X, you can find it in VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/http/.hosts

and respectively in VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/http/old/.hosts

* This version of VLC contains a new interface for Windows and Linux.

This interface has a fullscreen controller and simplified preferences.

This interface lacks the “Streaming Wizard” that used to be present in VLC

0.8.6, but provides basic profiles.

* The behavior of –sout-keep was changed. It’s now activated by default.

* The marq, mosaic and logo commands in the rc interface changed. They

now require a target name as their first argument. Example:

vlc –sub-filter “[email protected]{marquee=Hello}” -I rc

You can then use commands like: @test marq-marquee Goodbye

If you didn’t name the object using @test, its name will default to the

plugin name (hence ‘marq’) in this example.

These new commands are also available in the telnet interface.

* The “rtp” access output module has been removed.

Please use the RTP stream output instead, e.g.:

Old: ‘#std{access=rtp,mux=ts,dst=239.255.1.2:5004,sap}’

New: ‘#rtp{mux=ts,dst=239.255.1.2,port=5004,sap}’

* You now need to append –m3u-extvlcopt to your command line to enable

EXTVLCOPT options parsing in m3u playlists. Note that only a limited set

of options is available to m3u playlists (CVE-2007-6683).

* The old access:url syntax is no longer supported to resolve ambiguities

with some file names. Use access://url instead.

E.g.: vlc:quit -> vlc://quit ;

udp:@239.255.12.12 -> udp://@239.255.12.12

* The ffmpeg module has been removed and replaced by the new avcodec,

avformat, swscale (or imgresample if you use a swscale-less ffmpeg build)

and postproc modules.

* The web plugins ActiveX (IE)/Firefox/Mozilla/Safari now recognize the

following states: IDLE/CLOSE=0, OPENING=1, BUFFERING=2, PLAYING=3, PAUSED=4,

STOPPING=5, FORWARD=6, BACKWARD=7, ENDED=8, ERROR=9. With FORWARD and

BACKWARD being reserved for future implementations and are thus not

functional atm.

* Croping and padding in transcode are now done using the croppadd video

filter. For example:

transcode{vcodec=mp2v,vfilter=croppadd{cropttop=20,cropbottom=30,paddleft=100}}

* Canvas setting in transcode is now done using the canvas video filter.

For example:

transcode{vcodec=mp2v,vfilter=canvas{width=640,height=480}}

* Glide video output module has been removed.
