With WWDC slated to begin in less than an hour now, Apple will be providing live streams of what promises to be an exciting event. That said, live streaming will only be officially supported on either iOS devices or Macs. Which is to say, Windows or Android users who want to keep tabs on what Apple is announcing today are out of luck.

Or so you might have thought.

As it turns out, there is a clever way for Windows and Android users to tune in to Apple's live presentation today.

Here's how it works.

Download the popular VLC media player app to your computer or your smartphone. The desktop link is here while the Android link is here.

Once you open up the app, go to the Media tab and chose "Open Network Stream."

From there, paste the following link into the field: http://p.events-delivery.apple.com.edgesuite.net/15pijbnaefvpoijbaefvpihb06/m3u8/atv_mvp.m3u8

Next, press play and you should be good to go!
