If you are looking for some media player capable of opening all kinds of files, there you go. VLC Direct Pro Free is a popular PC application to play audio, pictures and video that is available now for free in in Google Play ready to be run in Android devices.

Developers have include all the the Pro version goodies in the latest update of this free beta version that features:

To configure your VLC, just download and run the following script in your PC (only windows):

(Remember running it as administrator the first time: Right click on it and then "Run as Administrator")

http://vlcdirectprofreescript.blogspot.com/2014/03/vlcdirectbat-script-windows-only.html

Windows will ask you permission to make changes in the VLC folder and allow VLC to access the network. Those actions are necessary for proper function, please allow them.

What does the script do?
Basically, It starts VLC with its web interface enabled, and passes it some parameters to improve codec finding and rtsp streaming performance.

If you don't use windows, you can follow this connection guide:

    Need to fix the queue function. Automatically adds the video and starts playing when I'm trying to just queue the video. Update: think it's fixed now..
