VLC for Mac is being maintained. However the old Cocoa graphical interface of VLC, is not being maintained at this time. Virus for a mac.

The reason is that we are in the process of rewriting a new interface for VLC. Its codename is Lunettes.

Why a rewrite? This is something really easy to see. VLC for Mac is just not 'Mac' enough.

So far, we could name 3 reasons for that:

VLC for Mac must attract designers.

They can't easily give a refresh of the graphical interface.

Hence, we have decided to offer to designer the possibility to edit via a simple text file the look of VLC. Even Windows and Fullscreen Head-Up-Display can be changed using CSS.

VLC for Mac's interface code comes from the 2000s.

We need to refresh it.

We want to use VLCKit which is pure Cocoa, Objective-C 2.0 with bindings supports. This will help us concentrating on features.

As a positive side effects, we'll not use old non-64 bits compatible APIs.

VLC for Mac needs a good interface to be the best Video Player.

We want to make sure you'll get the best experience ever when watching your favorites TV shows or Movies using VLC.

  • For instance, if I am watching a TV show, and then quit Lunettes. At next launch Lunettes will offer you to go back to where you were.
  • Then, we added a better way to visualize the media discovery. This is a seldom known feature of VLC. Now, if you are on a local network that streams TV content (Freebox), Lunettes will automatically show them.
  • Then the famous playlist fades out: It is not visible by default, and you don't have to use it anymore.
  • Also in fullscreen you can now scroll through your playlists or TV channels.
  • And finally Lunettes is 64 bits.

For now, Lunettes is being hosted at:

That said, Lunettes is still under heavy development. And we hope to be able to release a test version soon.

We still want new developers to help us! Try to build VLC and Lunettes!
