Will find it more convenient if users can adjust the speed of videos more easily. Now it is very hard to speed up at 1.7x for example. Also the default playing speed can only be set as 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0. Would appreciate it much more if a speed of 1.75x can be preset.
galapogosian's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 7/7/18 2:51 AM
VLC inexplicably crashed and took my entire media library with it- it was still on my iPad, but not accessable. Having used it on my PC for years as a player (not as a library,) I expected the same performance, but that was obviously premature. Make sure you retain copies of everything you copy into VLC’s library.

TibiaTibia's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 7/2/18 5:41 AM
Shuffle doesn't work well. Cant shuffle if repeat is on. If shuffle is on and the end of a video is reached, the next chronological video is played rather than a random one. There was a magical month pensive here it worked perfectly. It's also constantly in various states of bugginess. Videos won't play but audio will, I'm in a strange phase where I'll exit the app and come back to ghost duplicates of my videos, etc, that kinda thing. The desktop version is much much better, which makes this versions flaws so frustrating.

Karabus norm's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 7/19/18 8:31 AM
VLC team, despite the many glitches this new one is the worst. Since your most recent update, for some reason the iPhone does not register the app as active and darkens the screen. Resuming watching videos is even worse than before. Freezing and none responsive as well as the other screen gestures have disappeared. None of these were issues until the new update was released. Very disappointed by this. Please fix ASAP.

Removing granularity from the audio delay was a terrible idea. My wireless headphones lag about 30ms behind the video, but now the smallest increment is 50ms! It is still quite difficult to select the exact delay you want too. Please change the granularity to something more like 10ms and give us a precise way to set it, and a way to retain that setting!

Squishmaster D's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 7/15/18 8:27 PM
Issues I’ve previously had (crashes, not playing certain formats and frame freezes) seem to be resolved. I really love this app again. Just wish we could have the option to store folders within folders because I keep several tv shows on my device and I’d like to keep the seasons and episodes nice and tidy. Also, an alphabetical sorting option would be fantastic because having to manually sort files is tedious when you have hundreds to do.
Epoi's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 7/14/18 1:07 AM
Had an issue a few months ago, with skipping forward/backwards for variable lengths of time - I was wondering why there wasn’t a fixed length for skipping. Well, there is: you can toggle it on and off (“Variable jump duration” button in Settings). Didn’t get any feedback in the meantime, and only thought to look because I noticed another fixed-length skip option: in Control Center. Go figure. Problem solved, twice. The app is my go-to for watching shows. iTunes drag-n-drop is convenient enough. Decent customization options. Audio in background mode. It works. One possible bug: volume tends to drop to zero when opening Control Center (corner swipe) in iPhone X.

Dalek42's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 6/30/18 8:46 PM
Incredibly annoying on AppleTV, subtitles on by default on every video with no option to disable this behavior. Even Worse, when the next video starts, the motion to access the subtitle menu instead scrubs the video (so vlc remote behavior is bugged). Each and every video has to be force stopped and restarted before the subtitle menu can even be accessed to disable. Ridiculous. Captions should be OFF by default, instead the subs and bugged menu behavior ruin the experience!

Absolutely love this app and it’s functionality. Hands down its great for free. Some issues I am experiencing so far is when I am streaming over the “sharing over WiFi” it’s stops after 15 min of playing and loading doesn’t go end further. Also when you moving many files in one folder the order of the files goes backwards (which doesn’t make sense) and you have to drag them manually to get the order right. Keep it up guys, you are absolutely awesome! 👍👍👍

Vlc is really great app i use it both for mac and iOS.

It would be great if header would also scroll with contents or at least become compact. Also the streamed list gets full and wont show newly streamed movies and i have to remove all items manually.

I love the fact VLC actually displays the entire file name (I know that is an extremely low bar, but some how Apple has set it that low). VLC seems to keep track of your place in movies also, which is something the MEGA app couldn't do. But now I'm stuck with the problem VLC doesn't yet support "picture in picture" which is something I use almost exclusively watching on my ipad. So whenever that comes, this app will be perfect (other than the ugly orange logo lol).

Babiont's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 5/10/18 5:45 PM
I use VLC on my laptop, phone and tablet. Its amazing for what it does, but not how it allows users to go about doing it on apps. Theres so many supported media types, so many features (playback speed, for example), yet all of it is overshadowed by how little (almost not at all) organization is allowed for files. At this moment, users are allowed to make folders containing as many files as they would like. However, there is absolutely no option to organize files within these folders. Instead, the order in which files are added to the folders determine the sequence in which videos will play back. If you wanted to reorganized files within folders, what you would have to do is return the files to the main library and create a new folder. Outside of folders, everything is organized only by file name. I understand that one should be able to organize their files by intentionally renaming the titles, but should we really have to? Would be an amazing 5/5 app, if only the creator incorporated more options for users to neatly organize their files without hassel.

Reihm's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/18/18 12:45 PM
I want to like this app, I really do. The ability to load music via WiFi was a real attraction but after one month of use, it simply doesn’t work well enough to justify a download. Multiple problems: First is the organization of music. There is none. No ability to create playlists or genres or other ways to make listening a bit more modern. It’s just play a single album and done. But I can live with that. What I can’t live with is the random deleting of entire albums or repeating of a single song 100 times in my music file. And the final straw has been the random crashing of the app after 10 seconds of any song. I have an XR with latest iOS so no excuse that my phone is too old. You load a ton of songs just to find out they are not organized, get randomly deleted and then the app crashes. I really want to like this app but until some serious work is done I am done with it.

I want to organize my files manually!!! Don't even bother organizing them for us. 4) when you delete files in a folder it moves you back to the top folder. I often then need to navigate back to that same folder to choose the next file I want to watch. Very annoying Will raise to 5 stars when these are fixed!

This app is very good for IOS. I only have some ideas, hopefully your team can think about it. When i use my galaxy , i install Mx Player to watch movies, it is very convenient to use. Whenever i go back, just click on play button and i can continue to watch my last movie that I haven’t finished yet. But on this app I didn’t see that, and the list after i transfer my anime movies (over 800 episodes) to my phone. The list wasn’t sort by name or number, everything mess up and very hard to find next episode. Would you please can fix it to make everything more easier. And the right side to swipe up and down to control bright, look like it didn’t work probably. I’m still rate 4 stars for your app. Wish you can fix it and make the app more greater.

When the video uploads it has this buffering that keeps the video from flowing smoothly. For example , the audio will freeze then move beyond the frame rate of how the video is irl. It gets annoying because after I move my edits to my phone it plays but it stops and freezes. It always constantly freezes. And never just plays unless it’s a certain file. After effect files are big and I’ve tried everything to get it to work smoother. I wish there was help * cries *

The app would crash when trying to reorder/move a file in the root folder. Great! But they removed the file move action completely. I click edit and the move icon to the right of the file is no longer there. So the fix was actually removing the feature?

This application works fine; I use it with Google Drive. Please note if a folder includes more than 100 files it will not see all files- therefore create directories with 100 files or less, when uploading to your Google Drive.

Turning down the volume all the wy and you can still hear audio :( it’s like it’s stuck at 1-2% volume instead of 0%... please look into this. I will update my review once it’s addressed.

this is good because it lets you get files from your computer to your mobile device using wifi. you can use a cable, too. also because if you have a free movie from popcorn time on your computer you can get it to your phone via wifi.
lingvistika's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/16/18 12:48 PM
I’m a huge fan of the desktop version of VLC, so I was really disappointed that the mobile version works so poorly. I transferred some .dvdmedia files to my iPad, and instead of getting functional DVD play with menus and all, like I do on my Mac, VLC for Mobile just gave me a tiled list of subfiles, and most of the video did not display.
An angry farmer 589's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/16/18 12:48 PM
Love VLC as a project and al it’s programs. But this app is terrible. It does everything it’s suppose to, don’t get me wrong, it will play media off your phone and stream music from wifi servers to other devices on the same network like a stereo receiver. Except, it only works half the time. Why? Any developer reading this, help me change my rating of this iPhone app by allowing me to use it properly. There hasn’t been an update in a while which is surprising seeing all the apparent bugs that still exist. I am currently using another app which I do not like as much as VLC, but it always works, unlike this one. I will be happy to 5 stars rate this if I see an update addressing and fixing these basic issues.
VadMK's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/16/18 12:48 PM
This is ridiculous! VLC for Mac and VLC for iOS plays multiple channels from an m3u file. BUT VLC for Apple TV plays only ONE (top) channel from an m3u list. No way to switch channels. So why do you support it on OS X and iOS but tvOS???

VLC is great for windows and I love it! The overall app of VLC for iOS is great too. But one thing I’d note is that the app is VERY orientation sensitive when compared to watching videos online for eg, youtube. When I slightly tilt my phone, the orientation switches over which I find VERY annoying. Please fix it.

OddLinks's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/12/18 12:07 PM
I’ve used VLC on my desktop for years but the mobile app crashes at the end of every video played. If fixed I’d give it a 4-5 star due to the cloud services alone but until then it’s unusable. Currently using the XS max which seems to be what most users experiencing issues are using, hopefully that info will be useful to the devs. Thanks for reading.
zakmcg's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/12/18 12:07 PM
I like it, it’s nice not having to convert files to play on the native videos app. The interface is cool, the only change I would make it selectable icons from within the videos timeline, and of high resolution, it looks too pixel-y. Also on a really small note the “rename” function should be up by the “select all” “cancel” in the top right hand side. Also more UI options in general would be nice like back ground color, icon size, etc. Thanks VLC team you’ve made a really good app, I hope it gets better!
Stelsh's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/12/18 12:07 PM
If you accidentally brush the screen, it will make the volume explode which feels great when you have headphones in. It may also skip forwards or backwards from accidentally brushing the screen. When you are trying to point out something in the video, or trying to get a smudge off the screen, etc. this is really annoying. These features should be tied to buttons, not the entire screen..

The single track repeat does not work. Track just stops at the end. Also, play/pause with Bluetooth headphones doesn’t work half the time. Usually I have to restart the track. It’s especially bad if my Bluetooth headphones have to reconnect. (Bose QC 35). The problem is definitely with the app.
Stuff+Stuff=Stuff's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/12/18 12:07 PM
I haven’t had a problem with the app until I upgraded to an XS Max, and since then every video I’ve tried watching forces the app closed like a second before it finishes, making looping impossible and navigating different videos a massive chore. I would love to see this fixed.

It’s good. But one problem, time stretching audio is always on. Even when I turn it off, the pitch does not change. I hope that gets fixed.
JitterMane's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/12/18 12:07 PM
Love VLC, but I downloaded it primarily to listen to audio at different speeds with corresponding pitches. The “Time-stretching audio” setting switched to OFF should allow me to do this, but it has no effect.

I have been using your app on my Windows computer for years. Decided that I would like it on my iPad and downloaded it. And I cannot find a way to separate music items into playlist like I can on my windows. I can create them and name them but I can't transfer anything into them. Even though there's an instruction that pops up when I create the playlist or try to transfer the instructions don't work. Any thoughts?

VLC makes it easy to easily download any videos to my iPad. Couple suggestions, however: - Keyboard shortcuts to play/pause videos for Bluetooth keyboards - Ability to organize VLC videos into folders with the My Files app (folders made in Files does not show up in VLC app) It’s quite frustrating to not be able to press space bar to play and pause a video when many apps already have this feature. Would be much appreciated!

You guys have developed an amazing almost perfect software, it would be perfect if you added a folder in folder option. This why it’s important: having multiple tv shows (each with multiple seasons) will make the app one big mess. So please consider taking this into consideration.

I’ve used it for some time without any issues, albeit also without many features... however, the app has become super laggy and furthermore I noticed I suddenly have 20+ versions of the same track saying “new” when I never added anything new. Upon opening up FLAC files with VLC now it shortly crashes. When you reopen it, wait for the app to respond, you will notice duplicates!! Please fix and add folder structure for us

fredbako's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 12/12/18 12:07 PM
For iphone X users it’s really annoying for watching some movies since the front camera blocks some views of the screen. I dont like the Screen adjusting or the Aspect Ratio since its only Stretching or Compressing the movie views. I want to watch my movies with full normal aspect view from my iphone x. Just make or add some options that can view the movie smaller to fit the screen for the iphone X. If you check or watch movie from the apple movie app( called TV) the movie aspect views can get smaller to fit the iphone X without getting blocked by the camera lens, so please do like this too. I really love VLC for watching my movies do this the next update and i will get 5 stars thank you.

AstroVid42's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 1/10/19 12:53 PM
When I first uploaded videos, they each were listed once in the library. After using the app a few times, the library entries were duplicated multiple times. They were listed only once in iTunes. It became impossible to scroll to a video at the end of the list because of the hundreds (thousands?) of duplicate entries. No fix seems to be available, so I deleted the app and will try another.

Most of the videos that I’m watching on my phone are in webm format, which is nice since I can’t watch them without VLC on my phone, however, the files regularly go corrupt, and become near unwatchable. Sometimes when I initially download a file it turns out like this too. The corruption most of the time does not go away even when redownloading the file.

joecunningham's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 1/10/19 12:53 PM
You get two stars for the freeze-frame icons in the library. That’s slick. However... Basic controls: The iPad Pro has a keyboard. Please use it. Spacebar for play/pause and arrows for jump forward/back 10seconds. Also, it would be really nice to be able to use my iPhone as a remote control for VLC on my iPad. Please write an iPhone app for that. Yes I would buy it, but only if it can control the iPad, not just the Mac. Next: Library management is weak. Use the comic book app Panels as a model for how to do this right. I should be able to drag anything around to put things (both files and folders) in the order I want them displayed, also I should be able to pinch to leave a folder and go up a level. Swiping one finger down on a movie in mid-playback should stop the movie and return me to its folder. Also: two levels of folders, not just one. I want an extra layer categorization when I organize my library. These few additions would result in a perfect five-star app that I would recommend to every iPad person I know. Add them and I will rewrite this review to say how responsive you were to my feedback and how excellently 5-star the app has become.

IrwinMFletcher's Review of Vlc For MobileReviewed on 1/10/19 12:53 PM
Pretty reliable and useful. Local playback always place the next video even if that setting is OFF. Also the timer is too challenging. You only have a few seconds to set it before it fades away. So you have to visit the setting a few times to pick the sleep time desired and hit set. In addition, the recent update now longer displays the remaining time on the timer. That really should be in the status bar.
