[iPad Apps] VLC Player

September 21, 2010  |  iPad

So, since everyone is waiting for this beautiful app to be released I’d like to just say that it’s already out and that you should head over to your App Store and grab it since it’s for “Free” at the moment!

For those of you who haven’t used VLC (or haven’t been alive these past 10 years) VLC is basically a media player that offers all video codecs available within it, you know when you download that movie and all you hear is the sound with no picture it’s mainly because of the codec it uses to play it.  I remember way back before I discovered Mac or Perian (a Codec player for Quicktime on your Mac) I used to use VLC heavily and depend on it, I still do from time to time.

So this app is similar to CineXPlayer in which you can now transfer your movies onto your iPad without the need to convert them to iPad/iPod format which saves you some time if you want to add that movie on the run which is what I’m doing lately.  I get up early download a TV Show and drop it in my iPad and leave the house.  That way I have it on my iPad whenever I wanna watch it.

In short, I’ll give it a try tonight and see what the difference is between both.  But in the meantime go grab it, it’s a free app anyways I always stock up on those!
