VLC Media Player coming to jailbroken iPhones and iPod Touch In what should be welcomed warmly by owners of jailbroken iPhones or iPod Touches, members of ZodTTD have announced they have successfully ported the extremely powerful media player VLC (Video Lan Client) to the media devices.
Dubbed vlc4iphone, the port has its own frontend and will make your iPhone or iPod Touch capable of drag-and-drop playback of MP3, XviD, FLAC, MPEG2, MPEG4, h264, and OGG formats.

According to the official post on the site the project is still in beta, but it is expected to be released to the public in the near future.

The list of new additions, according to the post, are:
* Compiled in FFmpeg!
* MANY more decoders supported, including support for XviD, h264, MPEG4, FLAC, 3GP, MP3, MPEG2, AVI, and more!
* Added volume control.
* Fixed a warning when no media is found.
* Increased the size of vlc4iphone's binary from 5MB to 24MB! Lots of media goodness packed inside!

Unfortunately, for right now the beta is only available to ZodTTD Beta Testers. You can however, become a tester by donating to the site, if you cannot wait for the public release.

This is a great addition to the phone and it will become a phone with universal capabilities.

Yeah you lucky iPod/iPhone users.. though I still won't support Apple in any way so I won't buy one anytime soon. Too much DRM.
