VLC Media Player now available for iPhone and iPod touch

VLC Media Player iPhone

VLC has been around for the iPad for a while now. Today it was updated so that it would also work with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and recent iPod Touches.

There have been a few other updates to the app which include being able to delete videos from within the app, more extension compatibilities and faster media decoding which I assume is to do with Neon optimizations as it only runs on devices with Apple’s newer ARM CPU. Neon is a set of ARM machine code instructions which are well suited to media optimizations.

You can download it from Apple, via iTunes, from here.

VLC in my opinion is a must have media player on any platform. So I am particularly pleased that the cool geeks over at VLC central have updated it for more of Apple’s iOS based devices.

Are you excited that VLC is now an iPhone and iPod Touch app? Have you tried it out yet? Let us know in the comments.
