After bringing this awesome app to the iPad it was only a matter of time till a VLC version for the iPhone would be out. Here it is – playing different formats like DivX movies, AVI containers and even HD MKV files. However the iPhone 3GS can’t handle the load of high definition video. The VLC Media Player supports MMS streaming (Microsoft Media Server) and the real time streaming protocol (RTSP). The app is free.

The VLC player is the most comprehensive media player on the Mac. And finally the great tool makes it to the iPad. At the moment the app plays nice with avi, mkv, ts, mov, mp4, and m4v on the Apple device. Not bad, but the developers are promising support for “many more” formats.
Free all-rounder for video and audio files. Plays almost anything you can download from the web. And it streams your DVDs and movie files to other Macs or over the Internet too. Highly customisable media player. Licence: Open Source
