Does VLC media player really connect to iPods? I can't see the feature.VLC media player: Windows Media Player has its strong points, but it doesn't play many kinds of media files. It also won't work with iPods (and I refuse to struggle with iTunes). VLC media player handles every type of file I've ever thrown at it — and it connects to iPods, iPhones, and iPads, too.
