This is just a very short post (almost a bookmark-post) to share that we finished the releasing of the VLC engine on Android to LGPL.

This is now live in the release that was done today, named 0.1.2.

It mostly includes:

  • the Java code in the org.videolan.libvlc namespace,
  • the jni code gluing between libVLC and the Java code.

The corresponding commits are here and there.

This should allow to use the VLC engine in any other application on Android.

But be warned: so far, it is very difficult to build :)
