VLC media player is one of the most popular media players at least on the Windows OS. And this is for a good reason – it allows to playback virtually unlimited number of audio/video formats smoothly, and all of that without even installing a single codec! Apart from that it also supports many advanced features (streaming comes to mind).
As for the iOS world this popular player was introduced first in the Apple App Store as a free download. Unfortunately, for the avid users this was removed by Apple from App Store shortly afterwards because of the copyright restrictions. After that, this great media player has turned to the “dark-side”, and is available for iDevices through popular Cydia store. It can be downloaded for free from there for iDevices such as iPhone 3G/3GS/4, iPod Touch, iPad etc.
One of the many cool features that it provides on the iOS devices is the playback support for otherwise unsupported video files such as avi, wmv etc. Also, it can playback the video directly through the dropbox folder a really cool feature. Open email or other online video attachments directly in the player for the playback.
To get the VLC player for your iDevice for free – just add the following repo: “rpetri.ch/repo” and then search for the VLC Media Player application. Then install this application and enjoy!
