Beta version of VLC media player available for testing on Google Play
MKV for you and me
An Android version of VLC, the popular PC-based media player, is now available on Google Play in beta form.
Embraced by the PC community for its out-of-the-box support of numerous video codecs (.avi, .mp4, .mkv, and more), VLC has become a regular feature on the Start menus and desktops of heavy-duty media users.
Now, Android fans can help make VLC a must-have app for video and audio enthusiasts by putting the mobile beta through its paces.
Since it is a work in progress, the dev has advised that the beta is intended for "power users and hackers" only, given the app's unfinished state and current instability.
However, if your device uses a CPU ARMv7 and you're prepared to tolerate the occasional crash, then you can grab VLC Beta (NEON version) from Google Play now.
