Movie Playback will Change via iPad’s VLC

Written on September 13, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

The desktop VLC is arguably the most applauded open-source multimedia-playing application. Now it is taking its versatility, layman-friendliness, and comprehensibility to the iPad.

The iPad’s video playback capability is at par with its notebook contemporaries, with a bit of an exemption with non-Apple-supported-format conversions, which are a bit rigorous. This puts VLC at work in the tablet version.

The VLC on iPad is simpler than the desktop version, yet fairer. It presents items on the playlist as thumbnails and together in a grid, and you may start scanning them as you scroll. HD movies are marked as such, while partly-seen clips are overlaid with a pie-shaped indicator.

And with a quick finger touch, VLC will start playing your movie. If the app detects an iPad task-incapability, it will ask if you want to get it on with anyway. Not all file formats work with iPad’s VLC though, while subtitles do. You will miss the volume-boost capability of the desktop app in this upcoming version, which will hit the store for free.
