Emby for Android 2.3.79 update includes new video player built on LibVLC

The Android version of Emby (FKA Media Browser) has been updated with an all new video player. The new player is based on LibVlc which is the same video engine as VLC which means less server transcoding is needed and playback stability should be improved. Also the in-video menus have been improved and should be a lot more responsive, there are gestures for volume and brightness and simplified screen layouts.

It looks a good upgrade and having spent some time with Emby recently I can say it is a very powerful media solution.

The app is free from the Google Play Store.
