"VLC is a free open source cross-platform multimedia player for various audio and video formats. Currently, no official posts, however, have been made to the news or developers sections of the VLC website regarding the release candidate.

"The release candidate includes instantaneous pausing, frame-by-frame playback, on-the-fly recording and finer speed control during playback. New decoders in the release include the AES3, Dolby Digital Plus, True HD/MLP and Blue-ray Linear PCM decoders. Improvements have also been made to playback of RealMedia files and to the TS de-multiplexer for M2TS files from Blu-ray and AVCHD, in addition to fixes to 5.1 and 7.1 channel decoding and ordering."
