I guess it's back to CineXplayer we go!
We could just continue to get updates
directly from videolan site I guess.

Have you guys tried OPlayer? It's quite capable, but it has its issues. Sometimes avi playback seems to slow down, possibly the frame-rate. WMV playback is horrible, though much better than VLC's.

I have used it since it came out and it has worked flawlessly for me for viewing and saving WMV files from emails. VLC may let you view them but I haven't seen how it will allow you to save and store to the iPhone directly from email. I see no advantages at all to VLC.

I know what you mean, it doesn't handle "Open in..." well. It actually puts it in "VLC/Documents/Inbox/", sadly the app doesn't parse the files inside that folder. Now, it might not be rectified as Apple might take it off the store.

Hi, what do you need it parsed for?

Yep. The phone will give you an option to "Open in..." other apps. So if you've got VLC and OPlayer, you've got a choice.

Probably? :rolleyes: My iPhone 5 handled the video beautifully. Anyone else ever seen this message in VLC?

I saw it just the other day on my 4S. The video didn't play at all.

I was referring to the VLC warning in my screenshot, not anyone in this thread. Guess I should have clarified that.

Lol, I edited my post after I realized the obvious: that your were referring to the "probably" in the popup alert. :)

Wonder why Apple decided to let it back in?
Probably to try to keep up with the competition as far as video syncing goes and acceptance that it never should have been pulled in the first place. There are other iOS apps that do the same thing (though not as elegant) and were allowed to stay in the App Store.

VLC now has DropBox integration and AirPlay support.
