VLC Hits 3 Billion Downloads, Will Soon Add AirPlay Support For Android

VLC Reaches 3 Billion Downloads Milestone Android App to Get Air Play Support Soon

It's available on all major platforms, including Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and even Linux.

VLC, the hugely popular media playing service, is filling one of its gaps with the addition of AirPlay support as it has just crossed an incredible three billion users.

Open source video player app VLC was mere hours away from surpassing 3 billion downloads Friday, and the Videolan team celebrated the occasion with a special download counter at their CES booth in Las Vegas.

At the same time, In a report that quotes organization president Jean-Baptiste Kempf, VideoLan is working to introduce support for Apple Airplay for VLC, which will allow users to transfer their videos from their phone to Apple TV.

The 3 billion downloads mark was probably reached today thanks to the sixth update in the "Vetinari" series.

Griffin was greeted with cheers during pregame introductions and received a standing ovation after a first-quarter video tribute. Asked if he would have shaken hands with Ballmer, Griffin said, "I'm not here to answer hypothetical questions".

Kempf was also eager to share a roadmap for VLC with the publication. That would mean that 2D movies could have a virtual environment which would resemble the experience of a theater, with support for headsets such as HTC Vive.

The new feature will be available in the forthcoming VLC 4.0, according to a Techcrunch report, making it one of the biggest new features since the addition of support for Google's Chromecast devices past year.

To make it possible, headset manufacturers using SDK would have needed to add a massive amount of code with hundreds of megabytes to make the headset compatible with the main VLC app.

It's part of the reason why the media player developed by VideoLAN has proved so popular, and recently passed a rather significant milestone. However, Kempf said the team doesn't want to create a complete media center with specific tools for media library management.
