    Well, would you look at that? Ever since Apple added some leeway (and snark!) to its App Store submission rules, the approved apps have become increasingly more interesting: Google Voice clients, a Commodore 64 emulator, and now the VLC Media Player with claims to support "nearly all codec there is." We've spent a few minutes with the program already, and while it's import method is reminiscent of CineXPlayer (i.e. via the Apps tab), the thumbnail-rich interface is much prettier. Official launch date is tomorrow, but we've had no problem downloading from the US and UK stores already, so go ahead and give it a whirl. Or if not, our gallery is below.[/p]

    What's the big hubbub, couldn't you convert videos before ? If not, why would you even want to own such a gimped piece of shit

    You can install applications like this without updating a jailbroken device.

    Yeah you could but that'd take painfully long. This just allows you to copy the file in whatever format to your ipad ( take about 3 mins for a 750mb file) and play it without converting

    yxplayer (or yxflash if you have Cydia) should support them, but the support seems to suck, for now.
