At first it was called vlc4iphone, now it’s called ZodPlay, and at some point in the not too distant future it will once again be called vlc4phone (naming history details can be found here). Regardless of its name, it can play .ogg and .flac files – something which a number of us have been hoping against hope would happen some day.
Yes ZodPlay/vlc4iphone is currently in beta, for beta tester members only – but it will be available to the public soon at http://www.zodttd.com. It’s also worth noting that ZodPlay/vlc4iphone can also play FLV, XviD, H264, MPEG4, AAC and many other audio/video formats will be supported soon.
- Once installed, you’ll have a ZodPlay/vlc4iphone icon on your iPhone/iPod Touch dashboard.
- Upload your music files to /var/mobile/Media/zodplay/ (or /vlc4iphone depending on the version)
- And once you launch ZodPlay/vlc4iphone the files will be available to play, or add to playlists.
- Select a file to play…
- and away you go. Finally, ogg and flac files can play on an iPhone/iPod Touch.
