Open Source VLC Media Player Coming To iPad 232

Stoobalou writes "The people behind VLC, quite probably the most useful media player available right now, have submitted an iPod version to the Apple software police. VLC — which is rightfully famous for having a go at playing just about any kind of audio or video file you care to throw at it — should appear some time next week, if it makes it through the often unfathomable approval process implemented by Apple. The Open Source Video Lan Client has been tweaked to run on the iPod by software developer Applidium."

    I will send my left nut to Steve Jobs if this gets approved.

    Note to Apple: If a cooler appears on your loading dock and it has the shipping info missing please open it. If it contains dry ice and a zip-lock bag holding what appears to be a bloody walnut, please expedite it to Mr. Jobs.

    Thank you.

    I'm holding out for an Android phone with a flash *and* picture quality as good as an iPhone. The Samsung Galaxy S is the closest but no flash and no image stabilization. VLC would be a must it it existed but I'll setting for a phone/MP3/Camera for now. I'm sick of nursing multiple batteries/chargers and SD cards.

    I do not care to join the growing iPhone penile colony.

    Are you ejaculating that Apple has erected a large user base of which you do not want to be a member?

    You sir are a God among men. Short Men, who aren't terribly bright... more like dwarves with learning disabilities. You are a God among Drawves With Learning Disabilities. Hmm... doesn't quite roll off the tongue that way, I think we should stick with the original, but imply the meaning of the second. Right then.

    But seriously, that was a troll par excellence. Your bridge must be enormous, and located in the farthest, darkest, foulest depths of the wilderness simply to accommodate your awesome power.
