The folks over at Video LAN have just announced the introduction of VLC, which is one of the most popular media players worldwide, on the Chrome OS platform. Those who already know what it is all about can head straight for the Chrome Web Store to download the new app. This app happens to be a port of the VLC version for Android, just in case you are curious to know of the app’s roots.
Features of VLC for Chrome OS will include the support for all video files like MKV and DVD ISOs, in addition to audio files such as FLAC and other kinds of audio formats. Subtitles files, ranging from SRT to SSA alongside auto-detection will also be supported as and when possible. Sounds like a winner here, and good job to the VideoLAN team!
