VLC 2.2 "Weathermax" Brings Better VP9 & H.265 Support
VLC 2.2 (codenamed "Weathermax") was released today as the latest version of the popular, multi-platform, open-source media player.
The VLC 2.2 release supports auto-rotation of phone recorded videos, better support for Ultra HD codecs, VP9, and H.265, new extension support, experimental support for interactive Blu-ray menus with BD-J, the first non-beta Android release, support for the Digital Cinema Package, and many other changes.
