Chromecast Support Is Coming To VLC For Android, iOS, And Desktop

Aside from Windows Media Player, there is probably no single video player more widely installed on computers than VLC.

But it will likely appear very soon with a new feature in Android called Nearby, which will allow new interactions between you and nearby people, places, and things.
