VLC Media Player for iPad hit the App Store yesterday. The popular open-source multimedia player’s new iPad app is described as follows:
VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework, that plays most multimedias files and various streaming protocols.
It is simple to use, yet very powerful and extendable.
VLC has all codecs built-in. It comes with support for nearly all codec there is. And what is more it can even play back the file or media if it is damaged! Missing or broken pieces are no stop to VLC, it plays all the video and audio information that’s still intact.
I’ve never tried out VLC as yet, but I know it’s got lots of fans, so I imagine this will be a big hit on the iPad as well.
You can find VLC Media Player in the App Store now, and it’s a free app.
