VLC player set to arrive at Android Market in a matter of weeks
VLC already brought an easy way to play videos on iOS devices without conversion a few months back, despite some made-up drama around Apple's DRM requirements. It is now Android's turn to be blessed with one of the best video players out there, whose catch phrase is "It plays everything!".

Android has pretty solid video players already, but the more the merrier, and the folks at VideoLan have said the porting project should finish in a "matter of weeks". The new NDK that was released by Google recently really spearheaded the development, but the coders say that the VLC player might not be completely compatible with all Android handsets, despite the fact that most libraries have been ported over already.

As usual, Android's fragmentation is the cause for the delay, but we were more than willing to wait a few weeks for the kinks to be ironed out from a much-desired VLC Android app anyway.
