Pankaj and Rohit Yadav et al are working to bring the VLC mediato symbian platform. Currently they have achieved some basic goals but still it is under development.
VLC Player is one of the popular freeware media player which supports a lot of video and audio formats. According to the roadmap for VLC, which is currently named as MHSVLC but it may be changed in future, the app will be based on Python. Initial attempts were made using the Qt but now Python language is also being used to get better performance.
The VLC app for mobile is not available for testing or download. However, if you want to contribute in this project, you can give your suggestions and feedback here.
