Share

VLC 3.0 is available to download now for iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and even Windows Phone.

VLC is one of the most used media programs on the planet, and today it's getting its first major update in almost 2 years.

The changelog notes that VLC 3.0 can "stream to Chromecast devices, even in formats not supported natively", BD-Java menus, and features a new subtitle rendering engine.

Later in the program, he fell on his triple axel. "It was important to do a strong short program, a season's best", Morozov said. The Team Event will continue Saturday with the Short Dance, Ladies Short Program, and Pairs Free Skate.

The Chrome OS support is only for devices supporting Android apps, and it looks like (thankfully for safety) Android Auto is only for audio files.

VideoLAN is also laying the groundwork for a forthcoming VR version with 3.0 offering support for 360-degree video and 3D audio.

The VLC team has also expounded why Chromecast support has taken so long -it's because they don't use Google Play Services, instead choosing to build their own Chromecast stack support. The software has also been optimized for iPhone X. The group demonstrates 4K video at 48fps running on a Samsung Galaxy S8 working very well indeed, for example.

Many software releases are described in as being major or significant, but VLC 3.0 really is a huge release - it's a truly massive update from its predecessor. The major new addition is Chromecast support, which is present on all versions of the player, not just the Android port. The app is lightweight, available for just about any device you have, free of advertisements and unnecessary trim. VLC for Android will now also scan for Playlist files on your device.
