Let me be clear, VLC for Android has NOT yet been officially released. VLC for Android is an open source project and is licensed under GPLv2 License (like all other VLC projects). This means, you can build VLC from source and use it the way you want. And that's exactly what XDA Forum member adridu59 did. Unofficial build of VLC for Android.
Unofficial VLC for Android
- This is an unofficial build of a very-early-version VLC for Android and all things can go wrong. You should know what you are doing.
- Not officially supported by VLC.
- Gingerbread & ICS support.
- Pretty decent hardware acceleration support.
- Headset detection.
- Support for almost all media formats.
- More details can be found here at XDA Forums.
Random Screenshots of VLC Running in Android 2.3.3
VLC for Android occasionally force closes and has problems dealing with phone's auto rotation feature. Other than that, not much issues so far.
