Default [APP][Beta] VLC v0.1.4 [Nov 27]

VLC has released a beta. Unfortunately, it is not available in the US Play Store yet, but appears to be available in some countries. Hence, I've posted the file up here and can confirm that this version works with the Nexus 4.

Changelogs:
 

v0.9.0 - This update is the last version before the official first release.
New interface
  • This release has a new interface, available in dark or white colors. The UI is closer to an Android look and will evolve more in the future.
  • Video Browser and Audio Browser is updated
  • Supportt built in equalizer.
  • Playlist that can be edit with gestures.
  • Video Player is also updated
Hardware acceleration
  • The second important change is the introduction of full hardware acceleration. With this release, It has been able to decode 4K streams on a Nexus 5 or a BayTrail tablet.
  • Hardware acceleration is now enabled by default on 4.3 and 4.4. You can access it on 4.1 and 4.2 in preferences.
  • It also features the better looking subtitles support that was added on VLC on the desktop.
  • Software decoding has been accelerated too.
Misc
  • This release supports Widi and HDMI screens; it fixes some audio bugs on 2.3 and SD cards misdetections.
Versions
  • This release of VLC for Android is the 17th Beta. It's numbered 0.9.0, since it's the last important version before the 1.0.0 release.
  • It's available everywhere, except in the US, but will be pushed as a staging release on the store.
  • It will be finally available in the US with our next release.

v0.1.4 - This update is mandatory for those using Android 4.4 KitKat because fixes video playing.

v0.1.3 - This update is mandatory for those with new Android 4.3 JWR66N/JWR66V because previous versions will not play video, only audio.

v0.1.2 - Improves decoding speed, solves a few crashes and misbehaviors, cleans the code and changes the license of the VLC engine.

v0.1.1 - This is the 13th beta of VLC for Android.
0.1.1 is fixing a few bugs of 0.1.0.

v0.1.0 - This is the twelfth beta of VLC for Android.
  • Bugfix and performance release compared to the previous ones.
  • It should solves quite a few crashes and misbehaviours, and should prepare the framework for future improvements.
  • If you have audio issues, a preference setting allows you to use a different audio method, like AudioTrack (Java).
  • Another preference is available for video output (YV12 is the fastest, RGB32 the safest).
v0.0.11 - This is the eleventh beta of VLC for Android.
0.0.11 is a fixing release for crashes occurring in 0.0.9

v0.0.10 - This is the tenth beta of VLC for Android.
0.0.10 is a fix for crashes above 0.0.9

v0.0.9: - This is the ninth beta of VLC for Android.
  • The new beta is an important release after 0.0.8; it tests new audio and video output methods, and fixes many bugs.
  • The audio now uses OpenSL ES, which should help improve audio/video sync. However, a preference setting allows you to use the former method, AudioTrack (Java).
  • For video, one can now select YV12 output: it should be faster, if it works
  • For older devices, 16-bit output should help display speed.

v0.0.8: - This is the eighth beta available of VLC for Android.
The new beta is a small release above 0.0.7, improving the SDcards management (including external), fullscreen playback, thumbnailing speed, headphones support, orientation behavior, Android 4.2, lock screen control and notifications, audio glitches and audio interface sorting. It also brings many fixes for crashes and issues that were reported by users,

I think it's easier to get it from Play Market as it will be auto upgraded. It had the 0.0.8 version now.

It's not available for the US yet. Don't know why.

DONATE TO ME
MX Video Player & DICE Player working well for me.
DICE makes some distorted sounds on some MKVs, MX works completely though.

I was excited for VLC but they are way too slow on putting out something usable and letting users actually USE IT (as Stryder5 mentioned)
Twitter -- If you actually need to get in contact with me just tweet me rather than PMs its more efficient and I can get back to you faster.

OnePlus One: Mahdi | Franco Kernel
Nexus 5: Mahdi | Franco Kernel
Older devices: Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus, ASUS TF101, Nexus S, Samsung Vibrant, G1

I didn't know it. Here is the 0.0.8 beta from Play Store (Spain). Hope it's better than 0.0.7...

This is the eighth beta available of VLC for Android.
The new beta is a small release above 0.0.7, improving the SDcards management (including external), fullscreen playback, thumbnailing speed, headphones support, orientation behavior, Android 4.2, lock screen control and notifications, audio glitches and audio interface sorting.
It also brings many fixes for crashes and issues that were reported by users, and translations updates.
But remember, this is still a beta

Version 0.0.8 is working great on the Galaxy Note 2. Flawless playback of 720p MKV with DTS audio. Thanks!
