Video technology specialist VideoLAN has revealed that its popular VLC video player will support the Google Chromecast HDMI dongle, allowing VLC users to stream video and audio files from the VLC application to flat-screen TVs.
The addition of VLC to the range of options offering support for Chromecast will widen the device’s appeal, providing a reliable means of streaming users’ own media to the TV.
VLC support for the streaming media dongle, which was uncovered by US website Pocket Lint, will reportedly be part of the release of VLC 3.0, but no timeframe has been given for this.
According to the reports, the update to VLC will extend Chromecast support to content streamed from iOS and Android devices as well as PCs.
