VLC for iPad Submitted to Apple, Now We Just Have to Hope

While it hasn't been granted approval by the almighty Apple gods, VLC's media player for iPad will be free from next week, the devs are claiming (perhaps too hastily.) I like their confidence. Mind you, CineXplayer is still available on the App Store... [Mac4Ever via Macrumors]

I doubt it'll be approved. VLC relies on a dozen libraries that are in fact the so called "codecs" that decode the videos in all those formats. I'm guessing (without any knowledge, just a guess) that VLC hasn't changed and compiled all of these libraries into ObjC which probably gives Apple grounds to deny this app...

One can always hope though...
