I use this for my PC plays everything, great little prog.

One of the good things about this app is that it allows you to delete files from the application, without having to go through iTunes. Heat....

I've been waiting for this, thanks!

Xvid, Divx, and FLV amongst others.

Is this where you say you've been able to do this for ages with jailbreak apps?

awesome!!!

I've installed it on my iTouch 3g and unfortunately its very sluggish. Audio is fine but the video feels like its try to cache data before showing it. Definitely a major bug to fix!

Doesn't look like adobe will ever be on iphone/ipad/itouch...

Fantastic!
Thanks, this'll save hours converting files (and save having 2 copies of videos on my HDD!)

I was almost ready to say the ipod was actually worth it on seeing this post. Sadly as others say it's having none of it...

Why did I buy a ruddy ipod?!? Bag of bloomin' overpriced over rated clank!

This works like an absolute dream on my new ipod touch 4

Now removed from app store

What's apple going to do next???

Apologies seems it wasn't the mighty apple:

Does anyone know of an alternative for a non-jailbroken iphone that can do as much as this app? VLC was brilliant allowing me to play all movie file attachments with no issues - ie synced with mail very easily! As its not going to be updated was wondering if anyone knows of any alternatives?
