The VLC app for Android has now been updated to a stable build after a very long wait. The app has been in beta for a couple of years now and the makers have finally decided that the app can be used without any performance issues, depending on the device you’re on. It also fixes force closing issues related to Android 5.0, which is a welcome addition for many running the latest build of Android.
So overall, there’s not a lot of changes on board the app apart from fixing the usual bugs and taking the version number up to 1.0.0. Strangely, the Play Store listing in some cases still reads “Beta”, so the update might not be live yet. There are a multitude of media player apps on Android such as KM Player and MX Player which serve the same purpose and even do a better job in most cases than VLC. But since VLC is a trusted freeware on computers, the VideoLan team can hope to ride on its popularity.
Make sure you download the app from the Play Store if you haven’t given it a try before.
