Gnome VLC player gets new name, PPA

A few weeks back we blogged about ‘GNOME VLC Player’ ” a native GTK+ spin of VLC with the mission to have a “simple” interface inside a gtk+ body.

That project has since been re-named ‘GNOME Media Player’ and has gotten its very own PPA – thus making installation a snap.

In Development

The project is still in active development so don’t expect every bell and whilst to be, well, ringing and whistling.
