So they finally removed it from the App store. Glad I grabbed it already.
For whatever reason, the VLC media player has been replaced by a suite of free and fee-based streaming and remote control applications. These allow the user to locate an installation of VLC (Windows or Mac) on the LAN and then to stream and view content from the located installation to the iOS device. User reviews are glowing.
No. The original VLC link is this:
It did NOT get replaced.
Really? Cause that link doesn't work for me and I can't find it on iTunes.
I got a popup that it wasn't available in the US.
I would use it if it didn't destroy syncing the ipad.
VLC for iPhone and for iPad was very useful to me. I'm never going to delete it
Not had that problem myself...
I grabbbed it for the iPhone on a whimsy. Is it universal binary? I'll probably never use it anyway, as I use AirVideoto convert everything to h.264.
I'm guessing that your browser is pulling that page out of your cache. The original no longer exists.
I'm not too concerned to be honest. I've tried VLC a few times but a lot of videos don't seem to play, whereas literally everything seems to play in either YXPlayer or OPlayer.
I've only tried a few .AVI's and they all worked. Thank god ive still got it, unless they hit the kill switch n
That's very crappy to pull the app, although it sounds like internal politics from the vlc desktop creators killed the app rather than apple itself.
At the end of the day it didn't work great anyway, so no huge loss to iOS users, and better programs will come along in the future.
Because the app is removed.
Removed. Gone. Poof. Deleted. Thus the link no longer works.
When an app is removed, that's what you see.
Yup. Know that. I was responding to someone saying Apple put something else in place of the VLC page.
Recent version of VLC for iOS works pretty well on iPad for the videos I tried, including movies and tv shows
Here's why it's removed:
Worth noting that Apple only pulled the app after being asked to.
It's nice to have it, but i've never used it though.
The best alternative to vlc is probably OPlayer but it's not free.
