The VLC media player's developers are planning to add AppleAirPlay support to the software, enabling users to stream movies and other content from a mobile device to an Apple TV, one of the lead developers revealed in an interview at CES in Las Vegas. With its addition, it could finally mean that users will be able to beam content playing on the VLC mobile app to an Apple TV - something now not possible.
VideoLAN, the non-profit organisation behind the VLC media player, set up a dedicated booth at CES 2019 where a counter created using multiple smartphones and tablets kept a tab on VLC's download figures across all platforms. With meaningful updates and support for modern platforms, the application is well on its way to smashing the four billion download milestone. VideoLAN has ambitions to offer give users all the features they could possibly want from a media player - including native support for VR videos when played on the company's VR app.
Apart from AirPlay, VLC is also getting more robust support for virtual reality, said Kempf. According to Variety, it is expected that VLC will surpass its downloads goal at some point in the day on Friday. The feature is to be available publicly within the next month.
They went this route because using the SDKs from these manufacturers would have added hundreds of MB of code to VLC. However, the demonstration at CES 2019 shows that through reverse-engineering, only one megabyte of code is required to implement the feature properly, Kempf said.
"We are never going to compete with Plex or Kodi", he told Variety. Let us know in the comments!
