VLC Beta Testing its New Apple TV App

VideoLAN, developer of the popular VLC media player for iOS and Mac devices, had been looking for beta testers for its VLC app for tvOS. The bad news is, the beta is all full up, the good news is: “VLC for tvOS!”

9to5Mac:

Just a week after Plex released its official app for the fourth-generation Apple TV, popular media player VLC has today announced that it is looking for beta testers for its app. Details on the app’s features are still sparse, but we can only assume that it will let you play all sorts of media formats on the device.

VLC teased such an app back in September, but so far details about the new tvOS media player have been few and far between. The OS X and iOS versions of VLC offer playback of a number of media formats, and can play content directly from various cloud services as well. VLC is the Mac media player of choice here at MacTrast, and we can’t remember a video format we’ve thrown at it that it couldn’t handle.

VLC will join fellow media player app Plex on the fourth-generation streaming box. Both companies never made their players available on earlier models of the Apple TV. Plex, which was released last week, allows streaming of files from a local media server, and also offers content from a number of media streaming sites.

At this point in time, it hasn’t been announced whether VLC will be a free app, like its Mac and iOS counterparts, or whether it will be a paid app.
