    Any idea, I clicked on sime links pointing to vlc player but it says it is not available in US itunes store.

    Is there another alternative? Any free player that will play all the files you upload from computer, mov, avi.....

    thank you

    i used to have VLC on the ipad 1, wich work perfectly, then apple kind of took it out! and are really testing all of the other to see if it does the same! i dont think will see one like vlc for now, ur best bet is converting the video to mp4, quicktime, or other acceptable apple format! :S

    The vlc player app got removed from the AppStore, due to licensing issues, so unless you have a jailbroken iPad, it is not possible to use vlc.

    However, there are various other third-party video player apps, which offer similar functionality. For playing videos of different formats, AVPlayer, as well as OPlayer are good choices. Though both are paid apps. There just is no free equivalent to the vlc player.

    Do you mean handbrake? It's a free converter and works well.
