Guide to Download & Install Latest version of VLC for Android:

  • There are two versions of VLC for Android, neon and non-neon. To differentiate in simple terms, Tegra 3, Snapdragon S4, TI OMAP or the Exynos supports NEON APK build whereas, Tegra 2 processor devices supports “neon” format of apk file. Since most of the devices are powered with Tegra processor lineup, it’s recommended to download and install “neon”.
  • Once downloaded, connect your Android phone to computer. Place the downloaded apk file in your device’s internal memory. Ensure that you are connecting your phone in the Mass Storage Mode.
  • Navigate to “My Files” or “File explorer” in your Android, tap on the apk file named as “VLC neon” or “VLC non neon” to install the same and then tap on “Open” to start the VLC Player app. As soon as the installation is done, you will be prompted to tap on the “Accept” button. Please note that just in case if it prompts you to select the option of “Unknown Sources” then you need to select the same.

    “To differentiate in simple terms, Tegra 3, Snapdragon S4, TI OMAP or the Exynos supports NEON APK build whereas, Tegra 2 processor devices supports “neon” format of apk file”…

    This statement is so wrong! Grammatically and logically. Please make an effort to correct mistakes, before posting online. Otherwise, a great post.

    its not running my phone help me

    • Pradeep Neela

      its in alpha build, wait for next version to release! have you tried both the versions?

  • AKC

    It doesn’t work in Galaxy note N7000. Tried both Neon & NonNeon versions. Forget MKV,WMV or other HD format files, it can’t even play MP4 or 3GPP files properly. 12 MB download wasted. Have to uninstall. To be fair the app warns that it is an alpha (unstable) version.
