VLC media player nightly builds

VLC on Windows


Here you can download experimental versions of VLC that are daily generated from the VLC code that is currently in development.
Several issues that existed in previous versions of VLC might be fixed here, but since this version of VLC is not yet finished, you should expect other problems and issues.

Download nightly builds

Select your operating system to download VLC binaries:

  • The packages for the following operating systems
    are not automatically built every night:
  • openSUSE
  • Gentoo

Source-code snapshots

The tarballs service is discontinued, please use Git to get the latest source code.

Ubuntu PPA

The nightly builds for Ubuntu are available on Launchpad from the VideoLAN team's master-daily PPA. Once you have activated the correct repository, you can simply update the VLC (vlc) package.

Those repositories contain a vlc-dbg package. We recommend you install it so you can produce useful backtraces if you need to report a bug.

VLC SVN Snapshots for openSUSE

For openSUSE 11.4, 12.3, 13.1, 13.2 and Tumbleweed we offer also RPMs from SVN snapshots. The packages are updated approximatively once per week.

In order to test it, follow the usual instructions to install VLC as described on, but replace the packagename vlc with vlc-beta. You can only install one version, so either vlc OR vlc-beta. They conflict each other.

VLC Git Ebuild for Gentoo

Alexis Ballier maintains Ebuild for the master (vlc-9999.ebuild) Git branch in the Portage tree.

As it is a live ebuild it comes without any keyword so you'll have to put a '**' entry for it in package.keywords in order to be able to install it and, when appropriate, an entry in package.unmask .
