Thread: VLC App Officially Released for iOS Again, New Version 2.2.0 Available for Mac OS X

    Default VLC App Officially Released for iOS Again, New Version 2.2.0 Available for Mac OS X


    VideoLAN has officially re-released its VLC media-playing application for the iOS platform once more on Friday, along with an updated version 2.2.0 version of the VLC application for Mac OS X. It has been a long time since VLC was available in the iOS App Store and it was pulled for some unknown issues; the VLC team has been teasing the upcoming release for a couple of months now.

    VideoLAN notes on their blog the changes that come with the OS X version of the application:

    • Fight the popular vertical video syndrome! VLC automatically detects rotated videos and rotates them using hardware acceleration (on compatible platforms)!
    • This is supported for MP4/MOV, MKV and raw H264.
    • Resume playback where you left off. Supported on all the mobile versions of VLC for quite some time, it is now available on the desktop.
    • Vastly improved support for UltraHD video codecs like VP9 and H265, including encoding.
    • New hardware acceleration mechanism, GPU 0-copy decoding, faster and implementations for Linux, Android, and Raspberry Pi. (Other OSes will have it in 3.0.0)
    • Extensions: supported since a long time, we now feature an in-app downloader for the desktop, like Firefox
    • Subtitles downloading extension
    • Compatibility with a very large number of unusual codecs
    • Vastly improved compatibility for problematic files in Ogg, MP4, and WMV.
    • Support for Digital Cinema Package to play native movie theater formats.
    • Experimental support of Interactive Menus of BluRays: BD-J
    • On OS X, we've updated the interface for Yosemite compatibility.
    • On Android, we rewrote most of the UI to match Google Material Design.
    • This is the first public beta releases for Windows Phone, Windows RT and Android TV.
    • It is also the first non-beta release on Android.
    The firm also notes that version 3.0 of VLC player is also being worked on and will be released later in the year with "better support for mp4, adaptive streaming and TS streams and a partial ChromeCast integration." VLC, as it's worth noting, is a team of dedicated volunteers that do not get paid for their work, but instead accept donations from its user base for using their work. VLC notes that these updates are more than a year in the making.

    To download the latest versions of VLC for all platforms, you can follow the following download links:



    For more information on these releases, you can read the VLC blog at this link.

    May be a USA store problem. Tried the article link, the App Store Update button, and a new install on iPad and iPhone. No joy.

    It asked for my password and started downloading. It then told me it isn't available. App Store trolling.

    Whatever the issue was, it seems to have fixed itself, at least for me. I have downloaded and installed it just now. App Store trolling indeed

    I found them in the US store via my 6+ and my iPad Mini Retina and updated them both no problem. They are there.

    Link gave me the US store error, but I just searched it and it installed fine.

    Downloaded for me. It doesn't seem to play well with Google drive. It just shows an assortment of random folders and files

    Must've been something on Apples side. I was finally able to update late yesterday evening.
