More codecs and faster decoding.
The recent VLC Media Player for iPad app has been upgraded to work with the Apple iPhone and iPod touch.
The popular Mac and Windows player, which allows users to play obscure video and audio codecs launched on the iPad a month ago and solved a host of media compatibility issues for owners of Apple's tablet.
Now version 1.1.0, which now works on iPhone 4, 3GS and recent incarnations of the iPod touch, offers playback of a few more file extensions and faster decoding. It also has the very handy add-on of being able to delete video files from the application without having to go through iTunes.
The app joins the VLC Remote app for iPhone, which turns your smartphone into a control for the PC version of the player.
The latest VLC Media player is available to download now from the App Store and like all previous versions it remains stonking value and will cost you no money whatsoever.
