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.

Rather than having a fit that it is in the app store, all that the authors need to do is contact Applidium to ensure that the sources are released to retain GPL compliance.

It isn't Apples fault, this is the fault of Applidium for not releasing the source.


Applidium aren't attempting to place additional restrictions on the downstream recipients of the VLC code, the App Store is.
