Without further ado, here are the new releases:

VLC media player 2.2.0: Download from videolan.org/vlc
VLC 2.4.1 for iOS: Download from Apple’s App Store
VLC 1.1.0 for Android: Download from Google Play
VLC 1.1.0 beta for Android TV: Download from Google Play
VLC 1.1.0 beta for Windows Phone: Download from the Windows Phone Store
VLC 1.1.0 beta for Windows RT: Download from the Windows Store

One major cross-platform addition is that VLC now automatically detects rotated videos. It can then rotate them using hardware acceleration (supported for MP4/MOV, MKV, and raw H264) for proper consumption: no more stupid vertical videos!

For all platforms, the new version adds support for Digital Cinema Package to play native movie theater formats, compatibility for “a very large number of unusual codecs,” and “vastly improved compatibility” for UltraHD video codecs like VP9 and H265, including encoding, as well as problematic files in Ogg, MP4, and WMV. Now let’s take a closer look platform-by-platform.
Nice Info. I was suffering to view tilted videos by stopping screen rotation every time. I think this will solve.
Can you suggest a video player (for Samsung Grand2) for android, which is capable of playing raw .vob with 5.1 audio and 1080p videos with 5.1 audio. I tried many players but i could not. Pls help
@mpvelu have you tried MX Player... :huh
