VideoLAN Organization

The VideoLAN project started as a student project at the French École Centrale Paris, in 1996. After a complete rewrite in 1998, it became Open Source, thanks to the agreement of the École Centrale Paris, in 2001. The project started to open up to developers outside of the École.
