# libVLC:
* New capabilities for libVLC:
- Adjust video filter control: libvlc_adjust_Enable, libvlc_adjust_Contrast, libvlc_adjust_Brightness, libvlc_adjust_Hue,libvlc_adjust_Saturation, libvlc_adjust_Gamma
- libvlc_media_player_set_pause() can force the pause state, whereas libvlc_media_player_pause() would only toggle it.
- libvlc_set_user_agent() configures the "user agent" strings used for some protocols (HTTP, PulseAudio...). This replaces the --http-user-agent and the former --user-agent libvlc_new() parameters.
- libvlc_video_set_callbacks() and libvlc_video_set_format() allow grabbing video frames from a chosen memory location in real-time. This replace the ugly --vmem-* libvlc_new() parameters in previous versions. See http://wiki.videolan.org/LibVLC_SampleCode_SDL as an example.
- libvlc_audio_get_delay() and libvlc_audio_set_delay() configure the delay between audio and video/subpictures for the current input.
