VLC is a very simple free multimedia player that will play almost any video file you throw at it and iPhone and iPod touch users can now download the popular player from the App Store.
This new version brings in the following major improvements :
- It works on the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, as well as 3rd and 4th generation iPods.
- Decoding is quite a lot faster than in the previous version
- You can now open attachments from other applications, as well as RTSP and MMS streams.
VLC Media Player lets users sync video content to a device via iTunes in a variety of formats not formally supported by iOS.
Don't forget the source code is freely available and is hosted on git.videolan.org, so feel free to submit patches if you would like to contribute.
