It seems VLC, the acclaimed open-source portable media player, is getting Chromecast support. VideoLAN, VLCs creator, recently posted a changelog for their media platform to GitHub, with “Chromecast output module” listed as one of the entries.

If that entry means what it appears to mean, VLC will soon be able to stream directly to a Google’s HDMI dongle. The move would be a boost for Chromecast users since the device is not the best at playing local video, and VLC is considered the most versatile media player available.

Couple this new with the recent VLC Player releases for iOS and Android, and the popular software could soon become an essential part of the Chromecast streaming experience.
