iPhone Compatible with VLC

VLC is a cross-platform media player, which supports almost all kinds of media formats. The good news for Apple iPhone or iPod Touch users is that VLC is now being ported for iPhone as well as iPod Touch. VLC4iPhone app is currently in its beta phase, and you can be a part of their private beta, if you are a donating member of ZodTTD.

Just like VLC, VLC4iPhone supports variety of media formats including MPEG/MPG, MPEG2, MPEG4, AVI, MP3, XviD, h264, FLAC, 3GP and more. This app can be truly handy, if you watch lots of videos on your iPhone. Since most video formats are already support by the player, you no longer need to re-encode them, so that it’s playable on your device.

I’m positive that VLC4iPhone will be a huge hit, when App Store is launched. In the meantime, if you need to install VLC4iPhone on your device, you need a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch (and some cash to donate for the cause).
