What's New
1.4.1 introduces a few changes to improve VLC on Android
First, a lot of work was done on stabilization, cleaning, and bug fixing, because of the new features of the 1.3.x releases.
Then, the browsing view was rewritten, and merged with the preferences folders selection.
Finally, on 5.0 and 5.1 a new acceleration module was added.
We've also improved numerous crashes in hardware decoding, added a few interfaces changes to match the material design and fixed integration with other apps.

This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 3.0.13:

This is the port of VLC media player to the Android™ platform. VLC for Android can play any video and audio files, as well as network streams, network shares and drives, and DVD ISOs, like the desktop version of VLC.
