VLC Hits the iPad

iPad owners have access to a much wider selection of video formats now that the venerable VLC Media Player has come to iOS. The app supports nearly every video codec available, and in many cases can play back content from damaged files.

All supported codecs are included in the app so users don’t have to worry about downloading and installing extra plug-ins.

VLC Media Player for the iPad is free and is available at Apple’s iTunes-based App Store.
