Qt / Qt4 is the default, plain, graphical, interface to VLC, made using the Qt library (linux users may need to have this installed). It is used as the default interface on the Windows and Linux versions of VLC media player from version 0.9.0 and up.

Unless you change the preferences, VLC media player > 0.9.0 will start up in the Qt4 interface, but you can force this by running

vlc -I wqt



If Qt4 is not avaliable, it will probably revert to using the rc (console) interface, even if you force it. The most likely reason for this is if Qt4 hasn't been installed, or if it wasn't linked in (using the ./configure). See compiling VLC [1] for information on compiling.
