VLC for iOS has returned to the App Store and it brings a host of new features. The media player app was removed due to copyright issues between the GNU General Public License and the AppStore terms of use. According to MacRumors, the new app is fully open-source and the video playback and library kits are available for integration by other developers to avoid further copyright issues. An SDK will be released later this summer.

Today, itís my pleasure to announce that VLC for iOS is back on the App Store. Itís available free of charge in any country, requires iOS 5.1 or later and runs on any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This is more than an upgrade of the initial version: itís a full re-write. From the ground-up. Relying on the power of MobileVLCKit and its underlying libvlc, we started with modern video and audio output modules offering faster drawing, full support for 10bit H264 encodings, retina displays and lower latency.

Features:
● Wi-Fi Upload - Allows users to upload files directly to the iOS version of VLC through a web browser on the PC or Mac.
● Dropbox Integration - Play media directly from Dropbox or download it for offline playback.
● Download from Web - Download files from any web server for offline playback
● Network Streams - Play any network streams support by VLC media player for desktop operating systems
● 3rd-Party App Integration - Any app with a 'share' dialog can use VLC for iOS for media playback
● Video Filters - Video playback can be modified for brightness, contrast, hue, saturation or gamma in real time.

You can download VLC for iOS from the App Store for free. It's already available in New Zealand and will hit the U.S. App Store late tonight.
