Felix Paul Kühne


Contributor to the VideoLAN project since early 2003. Former Secretary of the VideoLAN non-profit organization, nowadays Treasurer.

After spending years on the Mac port, including a three month stipend from Google Inc. as part of Google Summer of Code to work full-time on the 2.0 Mac Interface, I somewhat shifted my attendance to mobile and embedded devices, redeveloping the iOS port from scratch in 2013 and pushing on tvOS in 2015.. Other pet projects include an Objective-C framework called VLCKit, a fork of a UPnP discovery library as well as browser plugins for the Mac.

You can find information about future features and current development regarding VLC for Apple platforms on my blog.

While being based in Germany's north, you can frequently find me at various FLOSS and geek events throughout the world, such as SCALE in Los Angeles, CA, FISL in Porto Alegre, Brazil, OSDC in Australia, FOSDEM in Brussels, Belgium, or the VideoLAN Dev Days in Paris, France.

In real life, I'm a medic and currently work full-time for the French consulting company VideoLabs SAS based in Paris, France to help companies deploy libvlc in their professional setups and contribute back to foster the VIdeoLAN community.
