VLC Player for Android incoming, Twitter hint suggests

VLC, an open source media player for PC, Mac and other operating systems, could soon be making its way to Android, maker VideoLAN has teased via Twitter.

VLC media player

“Android, here we come!” – that’s all the tweet says, but it doesn’t take a neurosurgeon to deduce it’s almost surely the massively popular cross-platform player, which, to the best of our knowledge, plays virtually every video and audio file format known to man.

Transcoding videos to the ‘correct’ formats has always been a source of irritation for mobile users. With smartphones today offering massive storage and expandable memory, this has become almost unnecessary. So having a well-known universal player on board could be a major boon for Android in enhancing its mass-market appeal.

Unfortunately we don’t know for sure if it’s VLC, let alone when it will land. But as soon as we do, you’ll be the first to know.
