hmm i just looked at ur post, n i found something about orientations in Info.plist sometime ago so i gave it a go. on MobileSafari.app it didn’t do anything. just status bar gives the orientation value while the app loads in portrait. so i gave another try on Mercury Web Browser from App Store. hmm here’s what i did
using iFile, went to Mercury3.app n backed up Info.plist n then started editing it.
on the part
n removed the 3 string values n left it with
n respring, then the app directly loaded into Landscape right but still rotates if u rotate ur device. so i locked portrait n tested again, it’s locked it’s screen orientation to how it loads.
so it worked with this but not with MobileSafari, so go ahead n try. i don’t have VLC to try so…..
