VLC media player coming to Android devices soon

VLC app for Android coming very early in 2011

The popular VLC media player app will soon arrive for Android handsets, GigaOM reported last week. The team behind the open source video player may release an Android app early in 2011, possibly within weeks of the new year, though no specific dates are known. The lightweight program supports a plethora of file formats, and an iOS version was launched in October.

The Android app was in development for months, but was hampered by Android outputting libraries using Java. Google released a new Android NDK in December, making it easier to use native code in Android apps. The delay now has to do with issues specific to handsets, such as different hardware configurations and software support.

Users can track the progress of the app here.
