VLC, the open-source video player app, is announcing two major milestones from CES today. The development team, Videolan — along with Jean-Baptiste Kempf, one of the lead developers — told Variety [variety.com] at CES that it'll be adding AirPlay support, allowing users to transmit videos from their iPhone (or Android) to their Apple TV.
The update could be released for the primary VLC app in "about a month," for free. However, VLC tells The Verge there's no specific release date yet.
Here is the bug tracker for the 4.0.0 release [videolan.org].
