VLC for iOS, Android getting Chromecast support VLC, one of the most popular media players for desktop and mobile devices, is on the verge of getting Google Chromecast support.
VLC dev Felix Paul Khne says native streaming support for Chromecast is already being implemented for the mobile versions of the software as we speak.

It has been suggested that iOS will be first to get full support, sometime in July, to be followed by Android, which still has a beta version of VLC.

By offering Chromecast support, the HDMI dongle can be used to playback your movies you have stored on SD drives or internal storage and use your phone as a remote. Pretty good deal.
