VLC has many different graphical interfaces, that
are organized quite differently in order to be in harmony with the
guidelines of each operating system supported. Documenting the use
of each graphical interface is too long, and some features are only
available via the command line interface. Therefore we decided to
document only the command line interface, but in many cases it shoud
be easy to guess how to use the graphical interface for the same use
!
