VLC Media Player, a program that allows users to playback videos of nearly all file formats, may soon come to Nintendo Switch.

Over the past 23 years, the VLC media player has become a household name, offering a helping hand to users who are struggling to play a video file that other applications won’t support. 

It is available on nearly every computing platform, a rarity in the apps ecosystem. Today, VLC reached another rare milestone: It has been downloaded more than 3 billion times across various platforms, up from 1 billion downloads in May 2012.

In a VentureBeat interview, VideoLan President Jean-Baptiste Kempf said their company was looking to expand to other platforms, and one of the platforms considered is Nintendo Switch.

If VideoLan goes ahead with the plan, Nintendo Switch gamers will soon be able to playback video content on their system. 

It should be noted that this player is mainly used in PC/Mac, although it is also available in Xbox One. For this reason, we can not rule out getting to see it by Nintendo Switch. Maybe it was a major improvement for console videos.
