VLC on iPhone sync question

Hi all,

I have 3GS with newest firmware. I put a couple of video clips on my iPhone using iTunes (managing apps under Apps tab), and later deleted the video clips from my Mac. If I sync my iPhone now, will the clips be removed from iPhone as well? Any way I can prevent that?

If it's in the VLC app folder the videos won't sync to iTunes or your Mac until you manually do it. The sync function of the VLC app doesnt work the same way autosync works like iTunes.

In other words, your vids will sit on your phone until you copy them back to your Mac.
