VLC is rightly considered the best and most versatile video player of them all. Renowned predominantly for its ability to handle any and all file formats thrown at it, maker VideoLAN has been busily updating and improving its assortment of mobile variants, and today, has made a rather big announcement in this regard. The crux of it is that VLC will be returning to iPhone and iPad, having been in hiding since the launch of iOS 8; the Android version is now finally out of beta as VideoLAN also adds an app for Android TV (beta), and there are also new versions for Windows Phone and Windows RT - along with a few other notable updates across the wider VLC product range. So, not much, then.
VLC for iOS is returning to the App Store very soon according to the lead developer for the iPhone, iPad and OS X version of the video player. More details to follow, after the jump.
It has only taken the best part of 18 months, but VideoLAN has finally come through on its promise to tailor its famed VLC media player for users of Microsoft Windows 8 / 8.1. Finely tuned for seamless integration with the tiled interface, VLC for Windows 8 is now available to download, although unfortunately for Windows RT users, the RT edition is not quite ready.
The guys over at VideoLAN, developers of the iconic VLC media player, have once again teased the Windows 8 / RT version of the app, providing eager video enthusiasts with a glimpse of the Snap View. VLC for Windows 8 has certainly been a long time in coming, but if these new screenshots are anything to go by, then the wait will have been worth it. Check it out after the fold!
VLC is undoubtedly the second most popular media player on both Windows and Mac. The app's ability to play just about any file thrown at it is the thing of legend at this point, and is something that plenty of other developers have tried to replicate. To date, the folks at VideoLAN are the only ones to manage it, and they've done a particularly good job of it, too.
VideoLAN's VLC is a media player used by millions worldwide on a daily basis. Famed for its robust functionality along with its ability to handle anything thrown at it with relative aplomb, VLC spans most of the major platforms, including Windows, OS X, and Android. One place it has never managed to established itself is the App Store, having been acrimoniously pulled by Apple's armed moderation team, but today, and as promised by the team yesterday, VLC for iOS dramatically returns for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
