VLC for Android Gets Major Upgrade


VLC for Android 2.0 officially launched in the Google Play Store on Tuesday, and this "major update" includes everything from network sharing to support for video playlists and multiple windows.

The free, open source, cross-platform VLC multimedia player can now tap into Android N, though those who like to live in the past can still use it on devices back to Android 2.2.

The nonprofit VideoLAN organization also touted network shares browsing and playback, which it said was "one of the most requested features," as well as video playlists, subtitles downloader, pop-up video view, support for multiwindows, an optional history panel, favorite network shares and URLs, and the ability to merge between the Android TV and Android packages.

Another in-demand feature coming to VLC is popup-video view, which will be helpful on tablets. "It's now implemented and we do support Samsung MultiWindow and LG Dual Window extensions to allow 2 applications on the same screen," VideoLAN says.

Overall, VLC for Android 2.0 looks to be a major upgrade. And it's available now as a free download in the Google Play marketplace.
