    I'm quite happy to have this on my iPhone, its about time to say the least.
    However, there are alot of flaws with it, including; not being able to play mp4 very well. (which is supposed to be the one format iPhone can cope with, so this shows that VLC player needs some work on it)
    I have been playing around with my RealPlayer Converter to customise the perfect format. And I do believe I've found it.
    So using the Windows Media format, use the following for a decent (LOW FILE SIZE) viewable video.
    Quality: 256kbps
    Resolution: 480×320

    Format: AAC
    Quality: 96kbps

    This gave me a conversion from 17mb to 3mb without loosing too much quality, it played well, and sounded good.
    and although a pain to convert, having a reduced file size means more videos, and the option to delete them in the app if you wish.

    Unfortunately, I find the app useless – playback is jerky with lots of tearing, even on a relatively low bitrate and resolution AVI file, in an iPhone4. If I have to convert files to play through it, I might as well convert them for use in the normal Apple iPod player. It's a shame as I use VLC exclusively at home on my PCs and was really hoping for the same flexibility on the iPhone app.

    Fantastic! I have a Touch 4g, and VLC plays almost any video file I throw at it.
    I wish, however, that it had a verticle scroll bar. I've got a few hundred short video clips loaded, and VLC Player always opens at the top of the list. I'd like to be able to get to the middle or bottom of the list easier than constantly swiping to move a page or so at a time.
