If you’ve been waiting for the VLC Media Player to hit Android, chances are you’ve given up by now. We reported about it coming “within weeks” back in December and then again in March as coming “within a couple months.” Fast-forward 6 months and we finally have a sign up form for the private beta of VLC Media for Android.
VLC Media Player is a free, open sourced media player capable of playing back just about any multimedia file known to man. It’s cross platform and while it isn’t the most aesthetically appealing media player, it’s all-in-one functionality is hard to beat. We’re not sure exactly how long they plan on running the private beta, but if you’re interested we have the link to sign up below.
They’re looking for all kinds of devices to test the player on so don’t be shy if you’re still rocking the OG Motorla Droid. Just fill out the form honestly and maybe you’ll get yourself one of the first working versions of VLC Media Player for Android. Hopefully there won’t be too many bugs or issues and we’ll see an open beta or final product very soon. I know there are many other options out there when it comes to media players but that’s kind of the point!
