    We all heard of VLC Player for your PC, well now its here for the iPhone / iTouch. You will need a jailbroken phone with cydia to get it on your phone.

    Seems like its only out for beta testing but we got a source that lets you test as well :)


    To install:

    1. Start Cydia
    2. Click Manage
    3. Click Sources
    4. Click Edit
    5. Click Add and add 'www.iphone.org.hk/apt'
    6. Goto Changes in cydia and you should see VLC Player at the top click to install

    Im waiting to buy a new touch and if it were in the app store this would be the very first app I would download. Shame that a community project like VLC which is on most top ten app lists for OSX may never make it to the touch.

    It's great that it's being actively ported... excellent. But I do wonder.

    So is VLC capable of saving content on the iPhone? It's still unable to access the media library, correct? Practically speaking, what can you do with VLC on the iPhone?

    You can't call it VLC if it isn't able to play all formats. Especially Divx/Xvid

    Just downloading it now.
    And to those saying it's laggy, tried porting it yourself?
