VLC will return to the App Store for iPhone and iPad Thursday at 11:00 PM EDT. VLC is a video player known for supporting just about every format on the planet. It was released for iPad in 2010, but pulled only a few months later due to conflicts with its GPL license. The app has been rewritten from the ground up with a new engine, a new open source license, and several new features, including WiFi uploads, support for DropBox, Web downloads to your iOS device, support for the same network streams supported in the desktop version, third-party app sharing, and video effects filters. Reported by MacRumors, the app is already showing up in some App Stores, and is scheduled to be available in the U.S. App Store tonight. VLC is free.
