The VideoLAN team have pushed VLC 3.0.0-rc1 to the candidate channel in the snap store. This is in advance of the final 3.0.0 release of the world’s favourite video player.
How to install
snap install vlc --candidate
How to run
To ensure you’re running the snapped version (as opposed to any other version you may have installed) while testing, you can either:-
snap run vlc
But if you have no other VLC packages installed, you should just be able to click the familiar icon in your desktop.
We’re looking for as wide a pool of testing as possible!
We have tested playback with GPU accelerated video on modern systems, but we’d love to hear your feedback from using this build of VLC.
Please leave feedback here on this thread, and not on the VLC or other bug trackers for now as we shake down this pre-release. Thank you!
