Apple Do you like VLC on your iPhone or iPad? You don't yet have it installed, but want to? Well, then you'd better be quick about it, as some VLC contributors are unhappy with the fact that VLC is distributed through Apple's App Store, violating the GPL the video player is licensed under. At least, that's what some think.

Member since:

VLC for iPad, as useful as it may be, is still garbage for one simple reason: reliance on iTunes to sync files to it. Make me a VLC for iPad that works through the magic of copy and paste, then I'll worry over it, but as it is, I can't use it anyway. As far as I know, there's no Linux solution to sync files to iPad apps (dropbox probably works, but it's not ideal).

Thats a problem in the apple wallet garden, you only are allowed to push anything onto the device with iTunes as gatekeeper in between. You dont like it, then buy something else, it is as simple as that.
