VLC 1.0 for iPad Goes Live on iTunes

Great news for all the iPad users out there who were on the lookout for a powerful, easy to use, and may I say good looking media player: VLC is now available for download as an iPad App. The app, which has been developed by mobile applications developer Applidium, is now available for download on iTunes (here’s the link).

Applidium spent several months working on the iPad app. On September 8th the developer announced that its work on porting VLC to the iPad was done. So the developer took the next logical step – it submitted the app to the App Store. Apple approved the app which became available in the App Store today, the 21st of September.

“After 2 weeks of review, VLC for the iPad is eventually available on the AppStore! The release date is set to Tuesday, Sept. 21, so depending on your timezone, it should be available pretty soon. For instance, it’s already available in New-Zealand! Just follow this iTunes link that should become active as soon as the app reaches your store,” said Applidium yesterday.

There are plenty of things to like about the VLC media player. First of all there’s the fact that you can use it on Windows, Mac OS X, and various Linux distros absolutely free of charge. And then there’s the fact that VLC will play pretty much any media format right out of the box. You’ll be hard pressed to find something that VLC cannot play. Then there’s the fact that it is capable of streaming over networks, transcode multimedia files, and is portable.

I almost forgot the fact that starting with version 1.1 users are able to write their own plugins for VLC, codenamed Extensions. To write Extensions users employ Lua, a simple and lightweight scripting language, embedded inside VLC media player.
