In the next few months, version 4.0 of the famous cross-platform media player VLC should occur. One of the main innovations will be the changed interface of the application. The development team is also working on adding more online content and running VLC on a web page.
In 2019, VideoLAN demonstrated a tentative interface that will appear in VLC 4.0 during the FOSDEM conference. Based on the screenshots, the player will receive a gray theme with transparent UI elements. And even though something could have changed in more than a year, the new interface looks noticeably more modern than the current one.
Another novelty from the developers may be a database for films that users can edit and maintain—something like the IMDb service. Within the company, this feature is called the Moviepedia Project.
The exact release date for VLC 4.0 has not yet been specified.
