VLC has been hailed as the universal media player because of its ability to play almost any type of media format and its availability on all major platforms. The dominance of Android and iOS, however, caused VLC to languish a bit in that last part. For example, VLC on Android hasn't receive any significant update since version 2.0 was released 13 months ago. That is partly due to the developers focusing on a major 3.0 release, which hasn't been dated yet. In the meantime, however, VLC 2.5 for Android has plenty to offer as an appetizer.
