    I hope to see VLC 4.0 released soon!
    VLC could really need a UI refresh as it looks a bit dated.

      From what I can tell so far, I like it. I never really had a problem with the old interface, but this new one looks nice. I'm sure it'll play better with Wayland than the existing one, so I look forward to it.

      I'd have really liked VLC to support HMDs much sooner. Linux is in desperate need of a good native VR video player.

        Looks great! Very much looking forward to this, especially the XR support.

          That's actually a nice looking UI. I plan on actually giving VLC another go once it's out.

          It's just hard to find something good enough to replace SMPlayer.

              It would be great if they finally remove the WMV bug in VLC (Linux) that has plagued it for years. That's the only reason why I use mpv, as it handles WMV perfectly.

                  I like the looks of that UWP version, but I don't see the resemblance between that version and the new 4.0 interface.

                    GNOME interface? But it will still rely on Qt: https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/query?...ilestone=4.0.0

                      I presume they'll use QT with CSDs.
