VLC is adding AirPlay support and will reach 3 billion downloads

The Verge:

VLC, the open-source video player app, is announcing two major milestones from CES today. The development team, Videolan — along with Jean-Baptiste Kempf, one of the lead developers — told Variety at CES that it’ll be adding AirPlay support, allowing users to transmit videos from their iPhone (or Android) to their Apple TV.

The update could be released for the primary VLC app in “about a month,” for free.

Since Apple has been ignoring QuickTime for years, VLC, along with the new IINA app, have been my go-to media players for all kinds of files.
