VLC It is that super complete player, but it has a "something" that makes me not use it. I am not saying that it is better or worse than others, I simply recognize that it is good, very good, excellent, but still I like to use more SMPlayer.
It turns out that the first RC (Released Candidate) of VLC version 2.0 has just come out, we can even download and test it: Download VLC v2.0 RC1
The happiest with this version will be Mac users, as the interface has changed drastically for them:
You can see more screenshots of VLC 2 on Mac here: feepk.net
By the way, this new design is from Damien Erambert.
The version for Windows will not receive many changes from the visual aspect, it will have a version for 64 bits when this version 2.0 of VLC is considered stable.
In summary, we will have among others, a new subtitle manipulator, support for multiple files in a single RAR file, on Mac they will have a new UI as well as support for Blue-Ray.
What about VLC on Linux? ...
