VLC video player is now available on the Apple TV. Like its desktop app, VLC for the Apple TV lets you play back videos in a variety of unconventional and lesser-used formats. New player will also include custom playback speeds, select between multiple audio and subtitle tracks, and view album art and artists’ bios when playing radio streams. It will also available for new Apple TV only, older generations of Apple TV cannot play Apps.
How it works: It’s made a web interface that allows you to drag in files from a local computer and have them sent over to the Apple TV. For those who want to go way nerdier, the app will also check for local media servers and can pull content in from there. VLC says it plans on adding more user-friendly services soon, including Dropbox, OneDrive, and Box, all of which are currently in testing.
