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! :)

This version is for devices with an ARMv7 CPU or a x86 CPU. ARMv6 devices will be supported in a future release.

Features

It also includes a widget for audio control, supports audio headsets control, cover art and a complete audio media library.

    I used to rate it one star because it would not function for my needs on android L, hence the usefulness was zilch. The last update brought support for android L, but the interface was severely buggy. The current update fixed it. As of this current update, VLC is meeting my needs on android L so this update gets 4 stars from me.

    After update, this app is absolutely pointless. No controls, can't change playback speed, can't change size....how is this an update?

    Used to give this five stars but it has to be one now, can't pause, forward or rewind or see how far I am through a video. Who even thought of that? So inconvenient, I'm going to have to change video player until this is sorted, vlc is usually my favourite :(

    Worked well before update. Now entire control interface is missing. Had to use an alternate player.

    This update ruined it all, no pause button at all. It seems vlc now has 10 year old kids working for them, even a dumb 10 year old is not as dumb as the person that programmed this new vlc update.
