There have been rumors circulating suggesting that VLC, the popular media player, was coming to Android. Finally, the app has gone into beta testing, but the problem is that the installations are locked to regions outside of the US. The developers warn however that this is for power users and hackers only and warn that it is much slower than the final version will be.
For those of us who can’t enjoy the official VLC Beta, VLC Direct Pro allows users to stream content from VLC on their computers to their mobile device. There are a list of features to go along with it as well:
- Remote control VideoLan VLC from your Phone/Tablet (play, pause, stop, volume, fullscreen, change video/song, etc.)
- Its internal video player allows streaming content Computer to Android (Video, music and photos)
- Subtitles supported
- Supported formats: avi, flv, mp4, mp3, mkv, wmv, jpg, mpeg, mpg, rmvb, m4v, mov, 3gp, ts, vob
All of that for the low price of free. It should not be too much longer before the beta test for VLC is over and we can all enjoy our play-everything media player. Will you use VLC when it comes out for your region?
