Over 3 billion users have already downloaded the popular VLC media player. VLC is now one of the tools that almost everyone has on their computers. An updated version of the open source software is now available.
For years it has been one of the most popular free tools and has billions of downloads: The free VLC media player is now available in version 3.0.14 . The update is available for Windows , Linux and probably soon also for macOS . To carry out the update, download the corresponding installer from the CHIP download area and follow the instructions.
The new version does not come with any great innovations, but only fixes two problems of the predecessor. But at least one of them belongs in the "really annoying" category: A bug in the auto updater prevented the latest version from being loaded there. With the small update, the developers correct the problem. You can look up the clear list of changes in the changelog .
Since the update to version 3.0.12, VLC has offered native support for the Apple silicon chipset in the new Macs and MacBooks. Our macOS download package contains both the previous version for the Intel chipset and the new ARM 64 version.
