The GNOME developers announced earlier today, August 22nd, the Beta release of the upcoming Totem 3.6.0 movie player app, that will be part of the upcoming GNOME 3.6 desktop environment.
The major change in this Beta release is the name, as the GNOME development team decided to change it to Videos. To make this clear, you will no longer see a Movie Player entry in Ubuntu, you'll see a Videos app instead.
Among other features of
Totem Videos 3.6 Beta, we can mention support for Wayland, HTTP proxy support, GStreamer 1.0 port, animated rotations, av-offset support, initial chapter support in non-DVDs, better search sidebar, Grilo 0.2 is now used to list DVDs and other optical media, some menu items were moved to the app menu, and much more.
