    I've synced my copy of VLC to my new iPad successfully from my iPad 1.

    I too had to sync it a couple of times before it took.
    But then it took and now it's working fine.

    It synced fine for me, but I don't think I'll have any luck getting it to work. I was getting a 'your iPad is not powerful enough' message when trying to play a film. I'm not sure the app will support the new iPad anymore.

    I'd really like to get it to work. I'll reload the film and screenshot the issue.

    This is a movie you played in VLC on your previous iPad right? What video format is it?

    It's .mkv format, 1920x816 so not massively big. I haven't had an iPad before, so can't compare that, but I'll try some other movies and see what happens with them too.
