In what we knew was only a matter of time, one of the most popular media players on the planet found its way on the iPhone, running on iPhone 4, 3GS and the new models of iPod touch. Initially launched on iPad only, the new VLC Media Player version 1.1 brings support for more file extensions and a faster decoding due to assembly optimizations. Among the files that VLC can play you can find .avi, .mkv, .ts, .mov, .mp4, and .m4v.
While we can’t do anything but rejoice, we found ourselves really wanting some way to access files stored on our home servers, so VLC, if you can hear us, give us some network sharing and or DLNA love!
Meantime, go to iTunes and download VLC Media Player for free.
