Changes between 1.1.12 and 1.2.0:
---------------------------------
8

9
Important notes:
10
 * The licenses of libVLC and libVLCcore have changed from GPLv2+ to LGPLv2.1+
11
12
13
14
 * 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
15
16
17
18
19
20
 * 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.
21
 * HTTP server IP address, port, and TLS configuration is now centralized:
22
23
   - The --http-host option sets the address, e.g. "--http-host=[2001:db8::1]".
     By default, both [::] and 0.0.0.0 are used.
24
25
26
27
28
29
30
   - 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.
31
32
 * The --miface-addr option does not exist anymore. To select the multicast
   output interface, use --miface instead, e.g. --miface=eth0.

34
 * The Windows version will only work with Windows XP SP2 or later.
   Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP < SP2, Windows 2003 SP0 are now unsupported.
35

36
37
38
39
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.
40
   Non-UTF-8 file systems support will be removed in future versions.
41
 * The VLC plugins path can be overridden with the VLC_PLUGIN_PATH environment
42
   variable. The --plugin-path command line option was removed.
43
44
45
 * 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.
46

47
 * The webplugins has moved to git://git.videolan.org/npapi-vlc.git

   * 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

     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.

662
Important changes for users:
663
664
 * 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.
665
666
667

Important changes for packagers:
 * The module cache has moved to ${libdir}/vlc/. The module cache can now be

668
   generated at install time except if you use staged installation. In the
669
670
671
672
   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.
673
674
675
676
677
678
679
 * 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.

 * The HTTP interface is now only available on the local machine by default.

   edit the ".hosts" file.

   - 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
1379

   - On Mac OS X, you can find it in VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/http/.hosts

 * 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

1391
   If you didn't name the object using @test, its name will default to the
   plugin name (hence 'marq') in this example.
1392
   These new commands are also available in the telnet interface.

     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}'

 * You now need to append --m3u-extvlcopt to your command line to enable
1398
   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,
   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.
