Major New Release VLC 2.0 'Twoflower' Is Out

Because it is a properly good media player that can play just about any format straight out of the box, VLC 1.0.x was a huge success. Just to put things in perspective, the media player was downloaded more than 485 million times. Good as VLC 1.0 may be, it is time to leave it and move onto something new, something that’s even better. I am of course talking about making the jump to VLC 2.0.0 “Twoflower”, the major new release that was rolled out to the public a few days ago.

Twoflower has a lot to offer: new rendering pipeline for video, higher quality subtitles, new video filters, faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware, completely reworked Mac and Web interfaces, new resamplers for higher audio quality, rewritten plugins for better integration and stability in all browser, it supports many new devices, and it can open even more formats. The list of new features is quite long, too long to present here. If you want to check it out, you can do so here.

If you’re not using VLC, perhaps you will take the release of v. 2.0 Twoflower as a chance to give the application a try. This properly good application which is offered free of charge to Windows, Mac and Linux users, is loved by millions around the world. I am among those people and I have to say I don’t think there’s anything better out there. While reviewing VLC for FindMySoft I gave it the “Essential” rating. That’s the highest rating used by FindMySoft and if there we anything higher I would not have hesitated to use it.

Windows users can get VLC 2.0 Twoflower straight from FindMySoft – this is the download link. If you’re on Mac or Linux, you can get the media player straight from the developer here.
