However, the Chromecast support will only be available on Android and Chromebooks for now, while the feature is in its beta mode. VLC 3.0 also apparently consumes less CPU and GPU than apps such as Media Player Classic Home Cinema and the Movies app on Windows.

VLC Player is one of the most popular media players now available on the Internet.

Supports 360-degree video and 3D audio, up to thid order Ambisonics, with customizable HRTF.

VLC 3.0 has officially launched and it brings with it a bunch of new major features, not the least of which is the official arrival of Chromecast support. Video quality while mirroring, from what we have observed, deteriorate.

As well as the wide range of formats, it also supports practically endless versions too. Another major addition is hardware acceleration support on all platforms.

VLC 3.0 is also now network-enabled. On OS X and iOS devices, the program uses a new hardware decoded based on Video Toolbox.

It's no wonder VLC 3.0 is an update geared towards the feature and created to offer the best value for their longtime users. Direct3D 11 output also works on Windows RT, Windows Phone, and Windows 10 Mobile.

If you're wondering why Chromecast support took so long, it's because VLC is 100% open source software, unlike Google's Chromecast SDK. VLC for Android is completely free, has no ads and no in-app-purchases. Media files can be dropped on to the VLC icon from other applications and right-clicking the program will open the context menu.

With version 3.0 of VLC installed, you can now cast local content found on your Android device.
