The developer, VideoLan team announced on Twitter that with the release of version 3.0.12.1, the media player will support Appleā€™s M1 MacBooks. This means that anyone using the latest MacBook Air, Mac mini, and the 13-inch MacBook Pro will now be able to run the VLC media player using the M1 chip’s power-saving capabilities.

With this, the new Macs will be able to run 4K and 8k videos without much power drainage, and other features like 10-bit HDR, 360-degree video and 3D audio, and Chromecast have also been added.
