VLC Media player has been with us for almost two decades and it has gone through a lot since its inception.
VLC has also been working on VR.
So what's next? In an interview with Variety, Jean-Baptiste Kempf, one of the app's lead developers, he shared some of the company's future plans for VLC, which includes adding support for AirPlay. With its addition, it could finally mean that users will be able to beam content playing on the VLC mobile app to an Apple TV - something now not possible.
VLC video player has a regular, slightly dull-looking graphical interface, which may make users wonder if it will be sufficient for the requirements of watching movies, listening to music, or streaming videos from other outlets. Kempf said the feature should arrive in the main VLC app within a month or so. According to Variety, it is expected that VLC will surpass its downloads goal at some point in the day on Friday. Its simplicity is exactly what made it so popular among users and got it almost 3 billion downloads. The roadmap revealed that VLC Media Player is about to provide support for Airplay on mobile devices. The solution VLC came up with instead added only one megabyte to the app's size.
The software has become hugely popular in recent years, and at CES earlier this week it celebrated its three billionth download. Specifically, they demonstrated the ability to watch 2D movies in a virtual theater while wearing the HTC Vive at its CES booth this week. However, Kempf said the team doesn't want to create a complete media center with specific tools for media library management. We will let you know in advance once we define a date.
