Folks, let me get you in on a little secret. I have found a big list of Free Android VPNapplications that are available in the Android Marketplace. I thought I should share the list with all my readers.
These Free VPN Android apps are still in their preliminary and evolutionary stages. Most of the apps offer 1-click VPN Settings, password management and configuration management settings, but there are few which offer complete Free Android VPN.
VLC media player is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player that plays most multimedia files as well as discs, devices, and network streaming protocols.
This is a BETA version of the port of VLC media player to the Android™ platform. It is intended for power users and hackers. This version is not perfectly stable and is slower than the final version.
It is still a beta, so it might kill your kitten or destroy your house, but it should be fine now. Use it at your own risk. Have fun! :)
NOTA BENE ––––––––––– This version is for devices with an ARMv7 CPU or a x86 CPU. ARMv6 devices will be supported in a further release.
Features –––––––––– VLC for Android™ plays most local video and audio files, as well as network streams (including adaptive streaming), like the desktop version of VLC.
VLC for Android has a media library for audio and video files, and allows to browse folders directly.
VLC has support for multi-track audio and subtitles. It supports auto-rotation, aspect-ratio adjustments and gestures to control volume and brightness. It also includes a widget for audio control, supports audio headsets control, cover art and a complete audio media library.
Missing Features –––––––––––––––––– As this is an early BETA version, a lot of things are not finished, but will change for the final release: • The basic User Interface will change again; • Performance improvements are missing; • Hardware decoding works only with a limited set of hardware; • Other unknown issues.
Permissions ––––––––––––– • It needs hardware control, in order to change the audio volume; • It needs phone calls control, in order to pause the music when someone is calling; • It needs full Internet access to open network streams; • It needs to be able to read logs, during the beta version, to help understanding the crashes and issues; • It needs to get access to the SD card storage, in order to allow deletion of files. • It needs to get access to the settings, in order to change your audio ringtone.
