VLC to return to App Store on Friday with full features
Thursday, July 18, 2013 @ 2:56pm

VLC will return to the iOS App Store on Friday, reports note. The v2.0 app has been completely rewritten, but should still be able to handle all of the media formats the previous version did. Several features have in fact been added, like Dropbox integration, the ability to download files from a webserver, and support for streaming over a network, including via iTunes filesharing. The app's developers are also promising touches such as video filters, AirPlay support, and new playback speed controls.



The new release will be free, requiring only a device running iOS 5.1 or later. The original app was pulled in early 2011 over a conflict between App Store terms and the GPL (general public license) associated with VLC's various incarnations. It's unclear how the new version of the app has worked around those problems.
