329 330 331 332
 * 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
333 334 335 336 337 338
 * 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.
339
 * HTTP server IP address, port, and TLS configuration is now centralized:
340
   - The --http-host option sets the address, e.g. "--http-host=[2001:db8::1]".

341
     By default, both :: and 0.0.0.0 are used.
342 343 344 345 346 347 348
   - 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.
349 350
 * The --miface-addr option does not exist anymore. To select the multicast
   output interface, use --miface instead, e.g. --miface=eth0.

   * libvlc_media_player_set_pause() can force the pause state, whereas
     libvlc_media_player_pause() would only toggle it.
   * libvlc_set_user_agent() configures the "user agent" strings used for some
     protocols (HTTP, PulseAudio...). This replaces the --http-user-agent and
     the former --user-agent libvlc_new() parameters.
   * libvlc_video_set_callbacks() and libvlc_video_set_format() allow grabbing
     video frames from a chosen memory location in real-time. This replace the
     ugly --vmem-* libvlc_new() parameters in previous versions.
     See http://wiki.videolan.org/LibVLC_SampleCode_SDL as an example.
   * libvlc_audio_get_delay() and libvlc_audio_set_delay() configure the delay
     between audio and video/subpictures for the current input.

1017

1018
Important changes for users:
1019 1020
 * On Linux, known bugs in the ALSA library might prevent audio output.
   Update to alsa-lib 1.0.24 or later, or use the PulseAudio output instead.
1021 1022 1023

Important changes for packagers:
 * The module cache has moved to ${libdir}/vlc/. The module cache can now be
Jean-Baptiste Kempf's avatar
Jean-Baptiste Kempf committed
1024
   generated at install time except if you use staged installation. In the
1025 1026 1027 1028
   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.
1029 1030 1031 1032 1033 1034 1035
 * 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.

   - On Windows they are in C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\http\.hosts and

 * 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

   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

   filter. For example:

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