Editors' Review


A full-featured media player, VLC for Android enables you to create playlists, search via filters, and equalize your music's sound. Additionally, the app plays most music and video formats, including disks and network streams. VLC's forums and extended volunteer community offer unmatched support. They even take requests.


Free and open source: VLC for Android is an open source freeware project with myriad support options. An army of developers donate their time and skills to keep VLC at the cutting edge. If there's a feature the player lacks, you can add it or request it from the VLC community.

Features: VLC for Android's features and options place it in another league from most Android media players -- free or not.

Tips: VLC for Android launches with onscreen tips describing touchscreen controls for brightness, zoom, and other features unique to this app.


Fiddly: VLC for Android is easy to use, but if there's one complaint, it's that it has more configuration and performance options than you may care to mess with.

Bottom Line

For many, VLC for Android is a no-brainer. Few players, free or premium, can challenge its capabilities and support. If you're not into fiddling and tweaking, your phone's built-in media player may be good enough. But if you want or need more, VLC for Android has it.
