Portable VLC Media Player


Portable VLC media player is one of the most popular VLC media player created as a portable app, so you can take your audio and video files along with everything you need to play them on the go.VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, WMV, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.Portable VLC Media Player can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

Important changes for users:
· On Linux, known bugs in the ALSA library might prevent audio output.
· Update to alsa-lib v1.0.23-2-g8d80d5f or later, or use the libpulse audiooutput plugin instead of the ALSA one (if you have PulseAudio).

Important changes for packagers:
· The module cache has moved to ${libdir}/vlc/. The module cache can now be generated at install time except if you use staged installation. In the later case, you can generate the module cache in your post-inst script by invoking 'vlc-cache-gen'. If the module cache is not present and vlc can't write in ${libdir}/vlc/, it will result it vlc taking a long time to launch each time.
Most X11-related plugins now use XCB instead of Xlib. VLC now uses:
· - xproto,
· - xcb, xcb-shm, xcb-xv, xcb-randr (from libxcb),
· - xcb-keysyms (from xcb-utils),
· - x11-xcb (from libx11) - only for GLX support.
· On X11 platforms, a _working_ version of xdg-screensaver is typically required to inhibit the screensaver during video playback.
