  • VLC for iPhone

    ZodTTD, creator of GBA, SNES, PSX, and OpenTTD emulators, has successfully ported VLC to the iPhone. VLC is a cross-platform media player which supports many formats - far more than the iPhone's built in media player does.

    He's still working on some of the formats, but the beta is up and available to his donating beta testers. Expect a public release sometime in the next week.

    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
    VLC is a great step forward in media playback on the iPhone, be sure and toss a few bucks ZodTTD's way for all the work he's done.

      Is there a way edit the names of items in the playlist? I can't recognize streams based on some of the URLs I have. Or is there someway to handle these using local? All i have are rtsp urls.

      hi all, have downloaded vlc4iphone and was ecstatic at how easily it worked, a full 1 gig file of a rugby gaem was smooth, crisp in colour and great to watch.
      i had full screen , landscape mode with sound toggle at the bottom and the video position toggle at the top, however yesterday when i went to watch the saem file. vlc4iphone is now in a different format.
      it's only half a screen with no option for sound with 5 buttons 2/3's down the screen giving next, back pause and settings. pressing settings and nothing happens, turn the phone to landscape and nothing happens.

      Have i somehow changed a setting or has it been updated for the worse???
