First Apple allows the free app VLC Media Player to be in the App Store for download, then they want it out. VLC Media Player is an open source multimedia player, and the developer might need to yank it out because Apple is “violating GNU public license under which VLC is released by applying DRM to it.” Apparently Apple wants to be consistent in the tight controls it maintains in their mobile applications platform.
For those of you who’s experienced so much frustration over the different video formats scattered on the web, VLC makes life simpler by letting you play virtually videos in any format.
While it’s free for download for Windows and Mac, it may not last that long for download in the App Store. If you are fond of playing lots of videos on your iDevice and find VLC Media Player pretty useful in your desktop/laptop, download it for your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad soon before it vanishes.
