With the coming of iOS 7, VLC Player also comes out with a fresh new interface. The design makeover aside, VLC Player version 2.2.0 also comes with very useful streaming support for Dropbox and Google Drive. The free and Open Source media player is now integrated with the two cloud services – you can now stream your video files without first completely downloading them to your device.
Thanks to better bandwidth around the world, your media viewing could get better. It’s also a space saver as you won’t need to store large media files locally. The update also brings many features to improve the playback experience.
- Advanced codecs like HEVC (H.265) and VP9 are supported.
- New multi-touch playback gestures – two finger tap to pause a video; control brightness and volume with swipe etc.
- Better universal plug and play integration (UPnP) for networked device communication.
- An improved library for TV Shows and audio.
The VideoLAN Player for iOS also includes a startup tutorial that should be a great help for new converts to the popular software. If you are already one, head over to the Apple Store and grab the free download for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Come back and tell us what you love (and hate) about version 2.2.0 of the mobile player.
