Android platform gets its own VLC player application

In the Android version it will plays just about any video without requiring the users to transcode or convert the video files.

According to Gigaom, a technology blog, VLC player which is a very popular media player with the PC users is finally going to extend its reach to Android devices as well.
Gigaom has quoted Jean-Baptiste Kempf, the lead VLC developer saying VLC media player will soon be available on Android platform also.
The open source media player plays wide variety of videos including popular formats such as DivX and Dolby TrueHD. iPhone already sports the VLC player on its handsets.
The VLC player initially worked as a desktop media client for Linux, Windows, and Mac.
In the Android version it will plays just about any video without requiring the users to transcode or convert the video files but doubts about how the VLC media player will work with different Android devices still remain there.
To ensure the application works fine on all the devices, the VLC team may have to individually work with all the devices to fix the glitches.
The VLC team was working on the Android VLC application for quite some time but could only complete the work after Google updated its NDK (native development kit).
