How To Cast Video Using VLC 3

Share

VideoLAN is also laying the groundwork for a forthcoming VR version with 3.0 offering support for 360-degree video and 3D audio.

The new version brings Chromecast and hardware accelerated video decoding support.

Chromecast support isn't the only new feature included in the update. You can download VLC from the Play Store (at the below widget), the Amazon App Store, or VideoLAN's website.

Android devices using the Cast feature will see a dip in battery life if whatever media you're streaming is unsupported by the receiving Cast device due to VLC's real-time transcoding and streaming, so keep an eye on your battery life.

So, with VLC 3.0, support for VLC is now available on DeX, Chromebooks and Android auto, as well as on your Android device.

Code-named after Terry Pratchett's fictional Lord Vetinari, VLC 3.0 will offer the new features across all major platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Apple TV and Chrome OS (along with Windows, Mac and Linux systems). The feature is still in beta and is expected to improve over time.
