VLC for Android now out in beta for some After almost a year of testing and waiting for approval, VLC for Android has been released for some in beta.
VideoLAN, maker of the desktop and mobile versions of the app, says the new beta is nowhere near stable, but it should play video content without too many issues.

For now, the app is not available for American users, and is only supported on devices with "ARMv7 processor that supports the NEON engine." This happens to be most current Android phones, but VideoLAN will release separate apps to support a wider range of devices in the future.

The basic widget (for those who can download it), will let you play, pause and skip tracks.

If you want to try it in the U.S., here is the download: VideoLAN Nightlies

Yawn...this took too long. Pathetically long when you consider it's still in beta. I use VLC on my Windows desktop, but I've long since moved on to vastly better products for Android that have been out for years and run circles around this basic and unstable beta.
