How to watch the Apple WWDC live stream on Android or PC

Its that time of the year again - Apples Worldwide Developers Conference is upon us. The Keynote kicks off at 10am San Francisco time on the 5th of June, 2017. While a livestream will be available, Apple tends to be quite "restrictive" as to who can watch it. If you own an Apple device and Safari you are good to go. For everyone else, we've got this tutorial on how to enjoy the live stream without a Macbook, Apple TV or Safari browser. 

There are 10 sorts of people: those who understand binary and those who don’t.

How to watch WWDC on Android

Many of you will already be familiar with the brilliant Android app, VLC. VLC is a ''play-anything'' solution for practically all media types, including Apple-only live streams. So hit the Install button below to grab VLC for Android.

VLC for Android Install on Google Play

Now, copy the following text and open VLC.

In VLC for Android, tap the little radar tower looking button up top on the right. Paste the link above into the dialog box and tap open. (If you have an older version of VLC, swipe out the navigation drawer on the left and tap Stream.)

If you receive an error message, don't despair, it's simply because the live stream hasn't started yet. So just repeat these steps at showtime and enjoy what's new in Apple land.

You'll likely see error messages in the VLC player. This is simply because the live stream has not yet started. Just press play at showtime and you're golden.
