Beta version for VLC
VLC for Android Beta is a video player application based on the popular software. VLC presents a smooth interface and a high usability, everyone will know how to make it work.
Play all kinds of videos and sort them by any variable you wish. The app is also highly customizable, so you can adapt it to your personal preferences.
VideoLabs is the developer of VLC for Android Beta, a beta version of the popular video player.
This is a BETA version of the port of VLC media player to the Android™ platform. It plays both audio and video.
It is intended for everyone, but this version is not perfectly stable.
It is still a beta, so it might kill your kitten or destroy your house, but it should be mostly fine now.
Use it at your own risk. Have fun! :)
This version is for devices with an ARMv7 CPU or a x86 CPU. ARMv6 devices will be supported in a future release.
VLC for Android™ plays most local video and audio files, as well as network streams (including adaptive streaming), DVD ISOs, like the desktop version of VLC.
VLC for Android has a media library for audio and video files, and allows to browse folders directly.
VLC has support for multi-track audio and subtitles. It supports auto-rotation, aspect-ratio adjustments and gestures to control volume and brightness.
It also includes a widget for audio control, supports audio headsets control, cover art and a complete audio media library.
As this is an early BETA version, a lot of things are not finished, but will change for the final release:
• Hardware decoding works only with a limited set of hardware;
• Other unknown issues.
VLC for Android Beta needs acces to :
• "Device & app History" to be able to read logs, during the beta, to help understand crashes and issues.
• "Photos/Media/Files" to read your media files
• "Device ID & call information" in order to pause music/video during incoming calls
Permission Details :

Prerelease of VLC for Android
This release fixes ARMv8 processors, Android-L crashes and minor improvements.
The 0.9.x series is major release with hardware decoding and a new interface available in dark or white colors. It integrates DVD iso and menu support, an equalizer, playlist management, Widi screens support and updated SD cards detection.
Hardware acceleration is now enabled by default on 4.3+ and has better subtitles support. Software decoding has been accelerated too.
It's soft,good quality, clear videos, easily to use etc..
So often are the phones with physical home keys forgotten about. I downloaded this because it has a lock feature, so I can hand it to a toddler without them turning it off or changing it. Wrong. My s5 Active has physical home/back keys and are immune to the lock feature, apparently. Fix that and I'll give 5.
UPDATE: I use VLC media player with Chromecast screen cast and it works great. I wish they would get Chromecast support for this app tho.
Some good ideas (gestures) but globally vlc on Android feels like it's not finalized. The most critical bug being that it's not possible to seek or forward videos over http or dlna
