The VideoLAN team is hard at work on the Android version of VLC media player, and yesterday one of the developers working on bringing this leading video player to Android gave a quick update on the current state of development.
While a public release is still quite a way off, the team currently has a basic prototype of VLC running in the Android emulator, as well as the Nexus S, Nexus One and HTC Desire. Several features remain to be completed, such as the GUI and support for screen orientation changes. Various codecs and libraries must also be ported across to Android in the coming months.
We look forward to seeing what the VLC team can conjure up as development continues.[Ivoire Blog]
