iPhone/iPod Touch Gets vlc. I Plotz!

The VLC media player brought to iPhone/iPod Touch!

VLC by is a popular multi-format video and audio player for a wide variety of systems. Within the past few days I have successfully ported over VLC to the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. I have also built and used my ogg4iphone frontend for vlc4iphone.

What is vlc4iphone capable of? At the moment it may be limited by only a small handfull of decoders, but soon that list will grow! It currently allows you to drag and drop the following popular media formats onto your iPhone/iPod Touch for playback: MPEG / MPG,AVI,MP3.

It also supports some lesser known media formats.

Soon it will play: FLAC,OGG

I am also researching playback of: VCD,DivX,WMA,WMV

Oh man oh man oh man oh man.

Get XViD on there too!

I use vlc for just about everything on my desktop. Whenever you see a screensnap from a video, 99% of the time that’s the handiwork of vlc.

It’s listed in the Software section of my Bookmarks as something I’ll be putting on whatever subnote I eventually get.

I wonder if the Core Media Player people are working on an iPhone/iPod Touch player? I just sent them an email to ask.
