    Use the "File Sharing" feature of Itunes (under the "Apps" section). VLC has an entry there for you to add files.

    I tried it with four files: two HD .AVI files, one .MKV and one .FLV. Only the .AVI files were playable, one displayed unacceptable slide-show performance, and one kept crashing.

    Thumbs-down from me.

    I got a warning that was telling me that my iPad is too slow for this file (the one that played at slide-show speed.)

    But after that, I tried a video that was formatted .MP4 and plays well in GoodReader. But VLC Player started slowly playing choppy video then crashed.

    Give it a pass - for now. I use VLC Player on my Windows PC, and it is pretty good. It is just not ready for iPad use.

    I tried a few mp4 files and they were fine (but they would have been fine on the iPad anyway!). I then added a wmv file, some flv files and a mkv file. Now the app crashes immediately after launch! Over and over again! I'll be curious to hear if others have the same experience...I certainly didn't expect this from vlc.

    Same here, mkv file crashes immediately.

    How do you delete a VLC file? Does it get delete if you delete the app?

    Money grows on the tree of persistence.

    I deleted the app ( and yes...deleting the app also deletes the files.). I reinstalled and like before, the mp4 files seem fine. I tried adding one flv file and even though iTunes synched it, it's nowhere to be found in the vlc app on the iPad. IMHO...a pretty useless app so far.
