VLMC will be available very soon in a pre-release version for Linux, Windows and Mac, stay tuned !
The official announcement of VLMC will take place at the VideoLAN dev’days 2009 in December.
Once the pre-release of VLMC is out, there will be full instructions on how to install it, and we will have all the details. Until then, you can fetch the current working tree using Git:
git clone git://github.com/VLMC/vlmc.git
What we know upto this point:
VLMC will be a free video editing software program, which will offer features that allow you to make professional quality movies. It will be as user-friendly and simple, as the original VLC media player.
We have seen tens of media players come and go but none has won more hearts than good old VLC (Video Lan Client). However, one thing that was always a negative for VLC is the mundane interface. Now you can solve this by using Kantaris instead.
Kantaris is a free and open-source media player that is based on code from VLC and Bass audio library. Kantaris can play almost all multimedia formats without installing any extra codecs. If you have songs inside an rar archive, no need to extract the first. Kantaris can scan the multimedia within the compressed folder and play it automatically.
With beautiful music visualizations, Kantaris has some similarities to the Windows media player. However, what stands out are the added features it has. Kantaris has an integrated feature to play movie trailers from the Apple website and a built-in support for last.fm.
Right now, Kantaris is only available for Windows. Download it here.
