Felix Paul Kuehne, lead developer for the iOS and OS X version of preferred video player application VLC, has verified that VLC for iOS should be available once more quickly in the iOS App Store (using Softpedia). The app will certainly be returning after an almost four-month lack from the iOS platform.

VLC for iOS inexplicably went away from the iOS App Store following the launch of iOS 8 in September of this year. VLC did not comment on the removal, only explaining that it was “collaborating with Apple on a solution” to bring VLC back into the App Store. After numerous months of silence, the firm announced in very early December that it was introducing a semi-public TestFlight beta test of the updated version of the application.

Addressing a current complaint regarding the application still not being available, Kuehne wrote in a VLC online forum article that, “It will be once again, however probably early next year because of the iTunes Attach holiday shutdown.” He added Twitter that the app will be back “With any luck very soon.”

VLC lately launched the TestFlight beta 2 version of VLC for iOS 2.4.0 with a handful of enhancements. Based upon Kuehne’s remarks, quickly everyone, not just beta testers, will certainly be able download the version as a brand-new app or an update for versions downloaded and install just before the application was removed from the App Store.
