Movie Playback will Change via iPad’s VLC

Written on September 13, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

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.

VLC Will Soon Be on iPad: If Apple Allows

Written on September 11, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Many movie addicts are wishing that VLC will be available on iPad too.

If you have no reason buy the iPad now, then maybe you’ll change your mind once you learn the good news . Did you know that VLC is coming to iPad? It’s not coming now, but soon it will. We just hope that ‘soon’ means any day now.

For those who doesn’t know VLC, VLC is like a drug for those addicted to videos. Why? Because it’s one of those video playback softwares that can be used by any individual, young or old. It can also be an expansion to a new existing device is something to be excited about. Knowing the fact that iPad is the world’s greatest device in terms of consumption, it needs the best media player.

VLC plays the codec, and when we say codec, all the codec you know. VLC plays the VIDEO_TS folders and lets you stream the Apple hardware on non-Apple hardwares, most of the time.

The problem is that VLC would be duplicating the functionality of QuickTime  4.46 trillion times better than ever. But Apple may not like that.
