Changes between 1.1.13 and 2.0.0:
127
---------------------------------

129
Important notes:
130
 * The licenses of libVLC and libVLCcore have changed from GPLv2+ to LGPLv2.1+
131 132 133 134
 * Start/end titles/chapters are now specified with # rather than @ to fix
   conflicts with some URLs and file names. For instance, this plays a DVD
   from the 2nd chapter of the 1st title up to the 4th chapter of the 3rd
   title:  vlc dvd://#1:2-3:4
135 136 137 138 139 140
 * The 40+ --*-caching options were simplified and dumbed down to 4 options:
   - --file-caching specifies caching for local files,
   - --network-caching specifies caching for network resources,
   - --live-caching specifies caching for capture devices and
   - --disc-caching specifies caching for local optical media.
   All values are expressed in milliseconds as in previous versions.
141
 * HTTP server IP address, port, and TLS configuration is now centralized:
142
   - The --http-host option sets the address, e.g. "--http-host=[2001:db8::1]".

Pierre Ynard committed
143
     By default, both :: and 0.0.0.0 are used.
144 145 146 147 148 149 150
   - The --http-port and --https-port options set the port numbers.
     By default, 8080 is used for HTTP, and 8443 for HTTPS.
   - The TLS credentials are configured with --http-cert (public certificate),
     --http-key (private key), --http-ca (optional CA) and
     --http-crl (optional CRL).
 * RTSP server IP address and port are updated similarly.
   Use --rtsp-host and --rtsp-port respectively.
151 152
 * The --miface-addr option does not exist anymore. To select the multicast
   output interface, use --miface instead, e.g. --miface=eth0.

156

157 158 159 160
Important changes for packagers:
 * The default builds now assume that the operating system uses UTF-8 for
   its file systems and files content (except the Windows port). If this is
   not acceptable, pass --enable-non-utf8 to the configure script.
161
   Non-UTF-8 file systems support will be removed in future versions.
162
 * The VLC plugins path can be overridden with the VLC_PLUGIN_PATH environment
163
   variable. The --plugin-path command line option was removed.
164 165 166
 * The default tarballs are now compressed with XZ/LZMA: .tar.xz
 * OSS support is not compiled on Linux by default, pass --enable-oss to the
   configure script if you use OSSv4 or really want to use OSS emulation.

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
827 828 829 830
   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.
831 832 833 834 835 836 837
 * Most X11-related plugins now use XCB instead of Xlib. VLC now uses
   - xproto,

   - 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.

 * 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.
1532 1533 1534 1535 1536
   - 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 Files\VideoLAN\VLC\http\.hosts and
     C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\http\old\.hosts
1537 1538
   - 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.
1540 1541
   This interface has a fullscreen controller and simplified preferences.
   This interface lacks the "Streaming Wizard" that used to be present in VLC
1542
   0.8.6, but provides basic profiles.
1543 1544 1545 1546 1547
 * 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 "marq@test{marquee=Hello}" -I rc <somevideo>
   You can then use commands like: @test marq-marquee Goodbye
Antoine Cellerier's avatar

1548 1549
   If you didn't name the object using @test, its name will default to the
   plugin name (hence 'marq') in this example.
1550
   These new commands are also available in the telnet interface.
1551
 * 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}'
1555
 * You now need to append --m3u-extvlcopt to your command line to enable
1556
   EXTVLCOPT options parsing in m3u playlists. Note that only a limited set

   avformat, swscale (or imgresample if you use a swscale-less ffmpeg build)
   and postproc modules.
1565 1566 1567 1568 1569
 * 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.
1570 1571 1572 1573 1574 1575
 * 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}}
1576
