vlc-media-player-android-beta-640x400.pn

 

As a huge fan of VLC Media Player on my PC I was extremely excited to hear that the app would be making its way to Android two years ago. If you?re not sure what VLC is, it?s a media player that plays pretty much everything without fail, and without you having to go hunting for obscure codecs and plugins.

 

Unfortunately for those of us in the United States the VLC for Android beta was not immediately made available while the rest of the world got immediate access. Yes, yes ? for once, America is last! Thankfully us yanks won?t have to suffer anymore as the app now appears to be available in the Play Store (thanks to the attentive folks at Reddit for the spot). The app also seems to be available for any Canadians who didn?t already have access, though it sounds like not many of the guys up north had any trouble getting it up to this point.

The latest update is nice, but MXPlayer is still better IMO.

It's a great player on my phone, although it does occasionally have thumbnail drawing issues which causes it to crash.

I can't remember now, why did it have issues getting released in the US? Was it an issue with codecs?
