VLC media player with Delphi XE8

Hi,

Starting at the beginning; is it possible to use the libVLC of the VLC media player with Delphi XE8 on the various platforms XE8 supports, i.e. Android, iOS, Windows, and OSX?

Or, is there a better choice then VideoLAN for both on device files AND streaming media??

The stand alone VCL Media player app seems to work fine for both and on all platforms.

Hi,

I says it uses the FFMPG Player, what ever that is.

So to cover all of my bases I guess I need to buy all of these:

http://www.flashavconverter.com/content/ffmpeg-player-ios-delphi-component
http://www.flashavconverter.com/content/ffmpeg-player-android-delphi-component
http://www.flashavconverter.com/content/ffmpeg-player-firemonkey

That may be better than doing it all myself.

Do you know if this company is reliable and if it provides good support?
