Hello Ryan,

I've just applied patch 1/3 and 2/3 to the MobileVLC repository. Thanks for your work!

I've got a question about the following though:

Does ZodTTD actually maintain this port? is it you?

If not, the current port of VLC to iOS is not related to ZodTTDs port at all. It is written in an entirely different way (using MobileVLCKit instead of creating a libvlc internal UI plugin), is ad-free, etc. Therefore, I'd suggest a different Package string and another website URL. What do you think?

The remainder of the patch is fine and will be merged as soon as this is solved.

Best regards,
