VLC for iPad app submitted to App Store

VLC for iPad app submitted to App Store Videolan has submitted their VLC for iPad app to the App Store this week, giving users a chance to playback all different types of video files on their tablet.
While we still wait for Apple's official blessing, the site AppAdvice was given a test build of the universal binary, and they put up a small preview.

The app supports Xvid, AVI, and DivX file formats flawlessly, as well as MKV, a container normally used for high-resolution video.

Unfortunately, unlike other third-party media players, VLC will not let you access your videos wirelessly from other computers, but that is hardly a deal breaker.

VLC for iPad is still pending approval, but should appear in the App Store next week, for free.

Wow...that is almost enough to make me want an iPad for a second...but at the same time, it makes me pissed off...they are willing to castrate the program to put it on the iStore, but they refuse to release an android version that would not require any such BS.

Agree with KillerBug. Apple's totally arbitrary and insanely frustrating rules that promote despotic view of the world that only serve Apple's purpose and stifle the innovation is something one would hope people to wake up to. Good luck Android, HTML5 and other players in the open market!
