The latest update to Open Source Media Player VLC is here, and it has local support for Apple Silicon Mac computers – the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and a newer version of MacMini with Apple’s own M1 processor. The latest version of Max in VLC 3.0.12 includes some visual opportunities to sync with Big Pig.
Mac applications don’t strictly require local updates to work with the M1 processor, as the Apple Silicon Max includes the Rosetta 2, the software designed for the x86 processors on new arm-based hardware. Easily runs. But for an app like VLC, which many users rely on for playback of heavy 4K or 8K video files, the performance and performance improvements are remarkable.
As noted 9to5Mac, The new VLC is not universal binary, which says that better arm code is not yet included by default. The official VLC app needs to be updated to 3.0.12 on an Apple Silicon Mac to get the improved version.
Version 3.0.12 has some minor features and syncs for VLC, including better Blu-ray track support when using Direct3D 11 on Windows and fixing some crashes.
