MobileVLC is the other name of the VLC application for iOS 1.0


Those old and outdated versions libraries (MobileVLC and VLCKit) are GPL, meaning that if you use any of their components in your application, your need to open source your application and comply to the GPL licence.

If you want a LGPL library, please refer to the new ones, that are documented here.

If you use VLCKit or libvlc please credit VLC. And add your name to the LibVLC Users page.
