After years in development, the VideoLAN team have finally launched their popular VLC video player on Android, meaning that if you own one of the newer ARMv7-powered Android devices, you will be able to download the first beta of the app from Google Play today. Initially targeted at “power users and hackers”, the beta is not a stable release and is said to be slower than the final public version. It will also support devices that are powered by an ARMv7 processor with NEON support. Supported devices include the Galaxy Nexus, HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S III, Motorola Defy, HTC Desire and the Nexus One. Read the full story at The Next Web.
