  • 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 Safari integration included or being planed?

      This seems to be as important as playing from a folder.

      Amazing job once again.

      YEEESSSSSS! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! The only thing I really liked about my PSP was that I could download video at work, and drag-n-drop for watching during the comute or at the gym. but the iPhone makes you have to convert everything, this is awesome. All I want is MPG and DivX/Xvid and I will totally donate for it

      Curious as to what this looks like, and unable to beta test it yourself? Check out the http://www.mofmyifone.com/nativeapps page.

      wow. this is pretty amazing. i wonder what kind of effects this will have on battery life/performance as the iphone (and all ipods) has a chip that helps in the decoding so the processor does not have to do all of the work. i know nothing of how this works, but i have doubts zottd has figured out how to get that chip rolling in his favor. what do i know though?

      If this supported divx I would cream myself.

      Drag and drop support for videos? Very few portable media players can do that.

      Hi, I am working on implemented FLAC and DivX tonight.
      This app will develop quickly, as demand seems very high!

      Where are you supposed to "drop" the videos?

      fingers crossed that it will be capable to handle standard .srt subtitles thus we won't have to burn the subs into the movies. Anyways, I'm looking forward to this really promising app

      Don't give a rip about any format other than AVI

      This is awesome, VLC replaced PowerDVD and Windows Media Player for playing any videos on my computer. Just one question, does this mean we can watch ANY video online? like stream non-mpg movies?

      Be aware that it is uncompressed AVI only I believe. Just if something has an AVI extension does not mean it will work. A .avi file can be dixv, Xvid amongst others.

      More on topic, WOW! This is a hell of a feat, and makes a donation well deserved. Zodttd seems to never sleep
