VLC Beta For Android

VLC is one of the most popular, open source media players across popular platforms including Windows, Linux as well as Mobile OS’. The Beta for Android has received a UI update that is moving towards the trend in Android design as well as being a very capable network streaming app now (previous versions were choppy and a little unreliable).

The developers do note that as this is an early BETA version, a lot of things are not finished, but will change for the final release:

  • The basic User Interface will change again
  • Performance improvements are missing
  • Hardware decoding works only with a limited set of hardware

So it’s great to know that they’re continuing their drive to make VLC a true cross platform media player, I’ve been using it quite extensively lately in preference to a couple of my paid apps that do the same task. If you’re keen to give it a go, hit the Play Store link below.
