VLC For iOS Gets Enhanced Subtitles, FTP Downloads And More

September 9, 2013
Over the weekend, VLC for iOS - the popular multi-format video player - received an impressive update adding a number of new features. Now, iDevice owners can access subtitle support for additional languages in the application, and FTP server discovery, streaming, and downloading has also been added to the app. Further changes made in VLC for iOS 2.1.0, as outlined in the application's release notes, include:
  • Add support for subtitles in non-western languages
  • Add UPNP discovery and streaming
  • Add FTP server discovery, streaming and downloading
  • Add Bonjour announcements for the WiFi Uploader's website
  • Add playback of audio-only media
  • Add Deinterlace option (off by default)
  • Newly implemented menu and application flow
  • Improved Subtitles support, VoiceOver and accessibility support, video output on external screens, Passcode Lock and so many other
  • New translations to Bosnian, Catalan, Galician, Greek, Marathi, Portuguese, Slovenian
As a reminder, VLC for iOS can play a large number of file formats not supported by the iOS Videos app, without the need for conversion. It's an impressive application that disappeared from the App Store in 2011, before making its "triumphant return" earlier this year. VLC for iOS can be downloaded in the App Store free of charge, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
