VLC is one of Android's most widely used media player apps. It is open-source and includes all the necessary codecs to play all types of videos and songs.

When opening the app, the contents are sorted by video or audio. You can also use the integrated file explorer to go directly to a folder to play the content. You can choose between dark or light modes at the interface level or opt for the automatic change depending on the system option.

In the player, you find a host of options available to make watching content more comfortable. When playing, you can swipe up on the left to increase the brightness or on the right to increase the volume. If you tap twice on either side, the video will jump 10 seconds. By swiping at the bottom, you can move the content you are viewing forward or backward in time.

During playback, you can choose the audio or subtitle language. If these are not integrated, you can download them directly from the Internet, where the app uses the name of the content to search for matching subtitles.

Other useful features of the app include audio-only playback with the screen turned off or playback in PiP mode, with a small window always displayed on the screen, even if you switch apps. You can also speed up the playback of the content.

Finally, you find advanced features you can turn on or off. For example, you can enable hardware acceleration so that the videos you play consume less battery power. You can also deactivate it if you want greater stability or have problems playing any particular content.

If you're looking for a simple and complete player for Android, downloading the VLC APK is one of the best options.
