Just under three months after the last update, VideoLAN have released version 1.1.5 of VLC Media Player for Mac and Windows which is a minor release with a few interesting new features. Most notable is new channel integration with Channels.com bringing hundreds of new streaming channels to VLC Player such as Reuters News, ESPN and National Geographic.

To access them, just right-click or CMD-click on the VLC Playlist and select Services Discovery and Channels.com. Channels.com will then appear in your playlist. Click on it to reveal the the different categories of channels available:

Click on the category you want and a drop down list of all available channels appears:

Just click on the channel you want to watch and streaming should begin almost immediately:

    VLC is king! Its that simple. Its software designed for the user and not for supliers of media who want to control how and what we watch. Above all it just works! And if you want to get creative it does a whole lot more - a whole lot better than we have any right to expect from free software!
