VLC for iOS makes a comeback

After being taken down by Apple from the App Store in 2011, the folks over at VideoLAN are announcing the comeback of VLC on iOS tomorrow, July 19th. VLC for iOS version 2.0 promises to play movies and shows in various formats without conversion. Plus, the app now supports Wi-Fi Upload, direct downloads from the web, and support for iTunes and Dropbox.

Other nifty features include the capability to play MKV, multiple audio tracks (including 5.1), subtitles tracks (including SSA!), as well as support for network streams, including HLS, MMS or RTSP. It's completely free and iDevices running iOS 5.1 or later will be able to enjoy the player starting tomorrow. As of this writing, we're hearing that a few Apple users in New Zealand and Australia were already able to downlaod the app.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
