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.

  • 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.

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.

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)

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!
