VLC for iOS makes a comeback

VLC for iOS is now back on iOS.

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.
