VLC media player 0.9 introduces a new interface based on the Qt toolkit.

Some of you, using GNOME or Xfce, seem reticent to that change, but let us explain a few things:

VLC media player interface is a PLUGIN

  • You can use VLC in command line, with the http interface, or even the old wx interface, that you can compile.

VLC media player DOES NOT DEPEND on kdelibs

VLC media player Qt module needs:

  • libQtCore,
  • libQtGui,
  • libvlc

That's it.

How to have a Native look of VLC using Qt inside GTK environnement

As GTK is able to produce QT like rendering using a special made gtk-theme, QT actually not propose similar way to get Native GTK look in QT applications with Gnome, XFCE or other GTK desktop environnement.

Does a GTK interface is planed to be developed ?

In ideal way, users hope to get package like "vlc-gtk" and "vlc-qt" in here favourite distribution...
