>>
>>51452932
Because anyone can put in ads since it's open source.

>>51452940
They can put ads in it if it's open source. Hell, you could puts ads in a linux distro for Windows and make it open source.
>>
>>51452940
So is there an ad-free fork?

Why are you on Android if you don't know how to use ad block? Go back to iphones

WP apps have ads as well. Stop promoting your shitty OS.

Yeah, shit third party apps. VLC does not have ads.

Can you build from source? I might be retarded because I can't find a github or fdroid version.

Nothing good about not respecting your own freedom. If you dont control the program, the program controls you. Every time.

You don't.

Oh shut the fuck up. Like you would even check through all of the source code. You're one of those opensource=saferNbetter people right? Use VLC I guess, but mxplayer is unmatched.

Rather eat open source shit than circle jerk with google. Its true.

Step 1 Open source code
Step 2 Delete ad space and code
Step 3 Recompile
Step 4 Profit???

Post memes all you want.
VLC is the only player that handles slow/fast playback properly.
And subtitles in MOV files and shit.

This is what I have always found funny about oss

Even when developers are generous enough to open their code, all the users are too fucktarded to cut out the code for ads

Must suck being normal

I feel like starting a little kickstarter to remove those fucking vlc ads, should only take 20 mins, I will charge $400
