   - 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

   If you didn't name the object using @test, its name will default to the

631
   EXTVLCOPT options parsing in m3u playlists. Note that only a limited set

   following states: IDLE/CLOSE=0, OPENING=1, BUFFERING=2, PLAYING=3, PAUSED=4,

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