Apple As I was casually browsing around today, I came across this blog post. It's about the recently released VLC media player for the iPad, which you can use to play just about any video under the sun on your iPad. The blog post is a complaint about a bit of help text that's not properly rendered inside the application - annoying, but no dealbreaker. Until I actually read the text - this is how you're supposed to get content on your iPad?

So VLC didn't set up their app to work around iOS's method of not using a mountable disk, and that's a glaring problem?

Interesting. That's not a problem for Air Sharing HD, which can be mounted as a webDAV drive, or Multitrack DAW and Quick Office Connect, of which files can easily be transferred on a web interface without plugging anything in.

I transferred a 4GB Citrix .iso from my Linux machine to my iPod touch, because I didn't feel like wasting a DVD and I had to bring it to work. Wow, that was tough. Took all of a few minutes.

VLC should have used this method, which would be far less tedious than even connecting a cable and mounting it as a drive.
