Still, one interesting feature that will make it to VLC very soon is AirPlay support. At the company's CES booth they were also demonstrating the application's enhanced support for VR.

VLC is made by a non-profit outfit called VideoLan and runs entirely on donations so it is a wonder it is still with us.

Depending exclusively on the software development kits of headset manufacturers would have added hundreds of megabytes of code to VLC. Its simplicity is exactly what made it so popular among users and got it almost 3 billion downloads.

Mr. Kempf has been quoted saying that this feature could end up rolling out to Android devices using VLC in about a month.

However, Kempf said the team doesn't want to create a complete media center with specific tools for media library management. What you probably didn't know, is that VLC reached has been downloaded more than 3 billion times on the official website.
