VLC Expected to Break 3B Downloads at CES, Will Add Airplay Soon
VLC, which is managed by nonprofit parent VideonLAN, racked up its three billionth download at CES, where it celebrated with the live ticker pictured above.
After that, a major update will be pushed to VLC across all popular platforms. When the update does land, it would make VLC one of the few Android apps to actually support AirPlay support, and it would most certainly be the biggest name to offer the functionality. The Videolan team, which is behind the creation of the video player app, is present at CES and the team members announced that VLC Media Player is about to reach 3 billion downloads today (Friday). This will make it possible for Android users to beam videos from their mobile devices to Apple TVs. Additionally, the VLC media player app for Android is getting support for AirPlay, allowing users to stream videos and songs from their Android smartphone to the Apple TV. This should perhaps comes as no surprise.
At this year's CES, VLC player will also receive better support for virtual reality (VR).
They went this route because using the SDKs from these manufacturers would have added hundreds of MB of code to VLC.

UK PM May: Rejecting Brexit would be catastrophic
The risk of the British parliament seeking to frustrate Brexit has increased, Brexit minister Stephen Barclay said on Sunday. One of May's opponents in the Labour Party said he would table a vote of no confidence in the government if she loses.
VLC is also preparing to add native support for VR content, according to the report, adding that VLC's developers are planning features including the option to watch 2D content in a movie theater-style environment.
It's part of the reason why the media player developed by VideoLAN has proved so popular, and recently passed a rather significant milestone.
With mobile accounting for a quarter of its user ecosystem, it makes sense for VideoLan to add more applications and functionality to that aspect of the experience.
