Standard player as in the native videos app? It only takes MP4, which not everyone uses. I'm not jailbroken

Why do people keep saying VLC?

1) Was last updated 2 years ago
2) Not optimized for Retina iPad screens
3) Not optimized for iPhone 5 16:9 screen
4) OP cannot download VLC because it has been pulled from the App Store

Exactly. Plus it's starting to crash regularly.

No it's not. The only VLC app is the remote one and streaming one.

PopUpTube and McTube are my primary video players. PopUpPlayer allowes a semi galaxy S3 pop up player behavior, but only on the app. McTube is more better Youtube viewer.

Looks fine on my iPad Retina, besides the iPhone shouldn't be a problem, from the looks of it, the design is modular

Try comparing it to one of the apps that have been made retina quality. I ditched VLC today on iPad for good.

No one's mentioned HD Player Pro yet. It plays most any format, including FLAC audio, and uses hardware acceleration for both MP4/M4V and MKV files. Lots of my titles are in MKV, so I don't have to convert. It also resizes better than the stock player.

No it's not. Some VLC remotes maybe.

And, again, for the vast majority, not something they can get onto their devices anyway as it's not available in the app store (and hasn't been for quite some time).

It's such a shame that VLC isn't on the app store I've got VLC on my galaxy tab, and even though it's only a BETA it's SO much better than the built in player, or any player for that matter: It's simple, it's versatile and it "just works".

Itunes videos will not play in any other player because of DRM.

VLC is in the App Store, I get a lot of artifacting on my iPhone 4s playing 1080p MKVs, on my 5, almost everything plays perfectly, including 10-bit files. Does VLC have GPU acceleration? I remember jail breaking and using XBLM and it does have GPU acceleration but didn't see too much of a difference.
