VLC, that popular open source multimedia player, is now available as an app for the iPhone 4 and iPod touch in Apple's iTunes App Store.

Also compatible with the iPhone 3GS, the VLC Media Player app boasts even more codec support than previous versions and the ability to delete files within the app rather than via iTunes.

The VLC Media Player app is free and available for downloading now.
