What’s New

This is the 15th beta of VLC for Android.

This 0.1.3 version is out mostly to fix issues with Android 4.3.

The previous version improved decoding speed and solved a few crashes and bugs.

If you have audio issues, a setting allows you to use a different audio method, like AudioTrack (Java).

Another one is available for video output (YV12 is the fastest, RGB32 the safest).

You have now settings to control quality vs speed.

Remember, this is still a beta 😉
