VLC about to launch on Android shortly?


The VideoLan Twitter account just posted the tweet above, indicating that an official VLC Port for Android may be on it’s way soon. The Android page on the VLC website currently lists the status for the Android app as ‘VLC for Android is in development. Come later for more information’. Currently there are unofficial Alpha builds of VLC out there which you can get but nothing official has been seen as yet, hopefully this tweet means one of the best media players on PCs is about to make an appearance for Android.
