Developer's original description available here
VLC media player is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player that plays most multimedia files as well as discs, devices, and network streaming protocols.

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! :)

    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.

    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
