VLC media player returns to Amazon Fire TV devices

VLC, the popular open-source media player, is once again available on Amazon Fire TV devices. The app was removed by its developers last month from the Fire TV appstore due to a disagreement with Amazon about the new version of the app. It appears as though the issue has been resolved because the new 3.0 version was approved by Amazon since then and has returned to the Fire TV appstore within the last few weeks. The previous version of VLC for Fire TV devices had a lot of issues that mostly stemmed from that version being a beta so, hopefully, this new version is more stable. VLC is a good media player option for those looking to play content, either from external storage or over the network, but don’t want all the bells and whistles of something like Kodi.
