Play anything on your Android phone...but only if you have Gingerbread.
The popular software VLC Media Player will be landing on Android handsets soon - but only if you have Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
VLC Media player has grown immensely popular with its ability to play all kinds of file formats, with no hassle of switching between media players.
A beta version is slated to release from early 2011 onwards, but its minimum system requirements would be Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so it's currently not looking at being mass-market.
So Android users will have to wait for their phones to get the coveted Android 2.3 Gingerbread update until they can play anything they like on their phones.
