VLC for Mobile app reviews

  • Why no full screen option? 3/5

    By MacDroidUser
    Why is there no full screen options ? I can see the date and time and black bars everywhere This is pathetic! is android version better?
  • Almost there! 4/5

    By CoolsterCodes
    This is super nifty, the one thing that would make it complete in my opinion would be to allow downloading folders of videos from cloud services, as a playlist while maintaining the video order in the cloud service folder. Today I have to individually download videos, and then rearrange them into a playlist, takes a lot of time. If there were a way to just download the whole folder as a playlist that would be awesome!!
  • Bug 2/5

    By JRjoniur
    Why not Full Screen in network stream?!!!!??
  • Update not happening? 2/5

    By CobaltJR
    There are many replies from the devs to reviews from months ago saying an update is coming very soon, but it hasn’t happened. What is the eta for the next update?
  • PIP 5/5

    By fartedsorry

  • SMB doesn’t work 2/5

    By Yubo Qin
    SMB simply doesn’t work when trying to connect a windows server with all SMBv1/v2/v3 support. Can browse files but cannot play any. VLC android works fine.

    By not good idea

  • Usable, free, deeply flawed 3/5

    By TieDyedDevil
    There are very few choices for free, ad-free multimedia players. This is one of them. If it sounds like I don’t love VLC: I don’t. Unfortunately, this is exactly the kind of half-baked junk that we must use so long as Apple maintains its walled-garden approach, intentionally ignoring both competing and complementary file formats. This particular incarnation of VLC, a widely redistributed open-source program, needs work. For starters, there’s no search capability. Scrolling through a list of titles to access a song by name is incredibly tedious. I’ve loaded only 900 FLACs, and I dread having to find a particular title. Of course, there needs to be some way to bring foreign data into the walled garden. This VLC offers an HTTP server advertising the capability to upload or download VLC media files. The server fails when the iPhone screen auto-locks; VLC should inhibit the lock, fix the HTTP server to continue after screen lock, or prominently advertise that the user must manually disable the screen lock. If that was the HTTP server’s only weakness, I’d be a bit kinder with my remarks. Unfortunately, there are other problems. The server simply terminates after having uploaded a two to three hundred files. Uploading multiple files is an ordeal. I should be able to drag a folder containing media files and come back later to close the web browser after the upload completes. Sadly, this doesn’t work. VLC’s HTTP server seems to follow a “one and done” error policy: the very first error terminates execution. There’s no apparent attempt at retry or recovery. I found it necessary to upload one album at a time, verify manually that the uploads did in fact complete or, if not, manually remove the partial folder and try again. After uploading 106 albums that way, I thought it appropriate to warn others. My only other complaint about this VLC is its default enablement of nonstandard control gestures. These should be removed or not be enabled for a fresh installation. Despite these concerns, I’m still giving this VLC an acceptable rating. The non-free (paid or ad-supported) players really aren’t any better.
  • Please update 5/5

    By seeeqwerty
    Please provide us 18:9 aspect ratio to watch media contents it will be awesome on apple devices specially iPhone 13 pro max
  • No Casting Subtitle, too much to ask for 21st century? 1/5

    By John RandomSeed
    Imagine that, year 2022 and we still can’t cast a piece of text to a TV. Humanity is doomed.
  • Works great on my iPhone SE. 5/5

    By Jerryr007
    Connects right up with my Win 10 system and my Bluetooth sound system.
  • Vlc settings on iPhone 2/5

    By Matthewjaiye
    How can set vlc on iPhone 6s, it’s causing me so much stress! Watching it here is not enough I need a brief explanation
  • Very bad update on OS15 2/5

    By FTP Enjoyer
    I don't know what happened, but the downloads from my local servers no longer show a progress and anything over a gig will not download. The rest of the app is great, but this renders it useless to download things for the go
  • Download hassle 4/5

    By Emahnde
    I recently begun to notice the app is giving me some trouble, it won’t seem to download small video files I keep on my computer as much as it used to and sometimes not at all, any thoughts??
  • Ability to change subtitle position 4/5

    By Minhaz Sourav
    VLC should add subtitle reposition feature. I’d rather have my movie subtitles on the black bar area than on the movie scene itself.
  • I can't fine the VlC on my phone buh it's already showing download please check it out thanks 2/5

    By Mimai beach
  • Choppy playback on AirPlay 13Pro Max 4/5

    By asych
    I’ve upgraded my iPhone to the 13 Pro Max 1TB. When using AirPlay to my Apple TV’s, the playback is choppy. It does it on both my Apple TV’s. Playback on the phone is fine. It works perfectly with my old iPhone 8+. Any idea for what’s going on?
  • Horrible: I can’t delete files 1/5

    By BehnamYazdani
    The VLC app was great until recent update that I can’t delete files from the app
  • Not as good as the android app 3/5

    By lBoRaTl
    If the devs add the ability to resize and move subtitles the app would be a 5/5.
  • Simple modification 5/5

    By Dr.karar
    I would like to add a feature to convert video format , VLC to be an integrated program and sings me from the rest of the other applications
  • Great basic player app!! 5/5

    By hatethispart
    You guys should understand this app doesn’t have ads. So dont expect all flashy with plenty features.
  • Bugs! 1/5

    By sana.njt
    This app has many bugs. Please fix them they are really annoying. Thanks.
  • Very stupid app made by stupid people 1/5

    By djkgzs
    U guys made rubbish app because what’s the purpose of a video player without a good subtitle..it brings out subtitle n by the time u tried it again..it won’t..both iOS manufacturers n vlc are both making nonsense.
  • The New and Improved VLC Player is Great 5/5

    By appleek
    The new and improved player is just what I need. I highly recommend it because it has all the features of a video player. I tried so many video players for iPad until I found VLC Player. I used the VLC player for Windows as well. A brand that you can trust. There's one minor flaw. I cannot see the entire video title in the video library, and there's no way to display the items in a detailed list.
  • App stopped downloading subtitles 5/5

    By Eveoncute
    This app has been great but recently I noticed I couldn’t download subtitles please help look into it thank you so much
  • love VLC but needs QR code reading 3/5

    By wizworks
    First, love VLC! it plays everything you can throw at it. What I really want to see is the ability to scan a QR code for a web stream (like an icecast radio stream or similar) and have the ability to use that as a method for tuning in a stream. Having to type in long URLs is cumbersome and being able to “scan to tune” would be a huge improvement. please implement a QR scan to tune feature in the player. thanks.
  • UI overhaul and ability to download subtitle needed 1/5

    By Umut Akparlar
    UI seems really old and gesture controls are not accurate. Most of the time I accidentally maxed out brightness and volume. In addition to that VLC should download subtitles permanently. When I download subtitle and quit VLC, subtitle is deleted and I have to download again. Clean should download subtitle to downloads>VLC folder.
  • Great app 3/5

    By blazecornel
    Great app . But better can be done with the interface and app lagging
  • Yes 5/5

    By NickRPG71
    I spent 3 hours trying to transfer photos from my PC to my iPhone using iTunes and iCloud and finally found a YouTube video telling me to use this app. After I got it, I got my video on my phone in 30 seconds. Honestly saved my computer, monitor, and phone all from being thrown out the window. Thank you
  • Emby support? 4/5

    By hvggfftjnbgy
  • Ability to connect to smb server *still* broken 3/5

    By Muesic
    Sigh - will this ever get properly resolved… I have a Mac mini set up as a media server (file sharing enabled via smb) and trying to connect only yields a spinning wheel. I can connect to this server from literally everything else, just not vlc.
  • Bad 1/5

    By anonymousmlx
    Your app is worst ever
  • A Bit Buggy 3/5

    By FritzTheWolf
    Playback is fine, but my issues pertain to features like the network streams. If you delete something from the list, all of the names don’t refresh. For example, if you delete the file on the top of the list, that name doesn’t go with it, so links and names de-sync. This is annoying, because if you’re streaming from links that aren’t readable, you’ll just click something and something completely different will play.
  • Can’t play local files 1/5

    By HaiGuise
    There’s no way to play local files on the iPad. Not sure why. The pc version has no problem playing local files. It seems I can only stream videos off other devices on my network. Utterly useless video player. I have an mpeg file I’m trying to play that iPad Pro doesn’t natively support. Part of this is apples fault for not allowing such a common format but the other part is VLC that doesn’t even give access in the app to your local file system on the iPad.
  • Subtitle Files 3/5

    By Viva Orta!
    Stupidly you can’t load a subtitle file from anywhere but one website. If you files and need to edit subtitles good luck on iOS therefore.
  • Doesn’t work well 1/5

    By AncientMystic
    Can’t play anything directly from the app and recently it was removed from the share menu and there is no way to share to the app so the only thing this app is good for is warm fuzzy feelings for having installed it, it does nothing…
  • Please fix aspect ratio for 12/13 mini 1/5

    By Vitali Z
    Everything is okay, but the UI and video picture are cut for smaller iPhones 12 and 13 mini. Please fix!
  • A little Help needed 5/5

    By theAWM
    I am a loyal VLC user for a very long time. VLC is everyone’s first choice and a blessing for all. One thing I want to add. Kindly add chromecast feature to iPad version of this app, like your iPhone version of app. Thank you.
  • Loving app so far, but... 4/5

    By Makejdiwkchdhkwowhxhj
    I come from Android, and there it remembers what tab I was last on, ie: audio/video iOS app does not allow this, and does not have an option from what I see. So I have to open app, then click audio, then click albums since my library is sorted by albums. Kind of a pain but it works at least. Also filters are not present on iOS, which I kinda miss.
  • Good player but lacks some potential features 4/5

    By Aenvan
    I have using since windows. I have never used any video player except VLC. By the best player i have come across with not bec this is a free version, even if it’s for purchase i would buy. but i have noticed the developers don’t update the player as it should. Even now it’s been a year since the player is not updated with new features. For audio tag, we would appreciate if there is a EQ. Also VLC doesn’t pickup system sound setting on iPhone but it uses its own engineer. How about also give us the ability to control the audio output for our satisfaction. Besides please add a miniplayer to it. Also since iOS supports floating video, but VLC doesn’t allow that either. Once minimise the video that’s it. You can longer watch the video on top of the screen. Other than that, i give a huge round of applaud for the developers of this amazing app we used to know since we were kids. I hope they would continue updating the app regularly.
  • Renaming 4/5

    By Chihawksrule_1013
    2 things: when I go to rename a file, it doesn’t go in alphabetical order like it used to. Next, I’m trying to get videos on the app transferred onto the app on my Amazon firestick. Can you help me out?
  • Sadly a time waster 1/5

    By uhoh7
    I have used VLC forever, and still do sometimes. Now I am looking for an alternative. Sorting will not retain, long titles can’t be seen, importing is hot and miss, playlists….etc. This is basic stuff. The UI is not user friendly, to say the least. A good file browser for the media library and more display options so we can see and find and order, then I’ll be back.
  • Best Ever 5/5

    By Jesus our Redeemer
    I just love using VLC, I have this downloaded on all my cellular devices, PC’s, tablets, etc. the best ever. If you don’t have it download it NOW!
  • The best video player for ios 5/5

    By Abdollah_7400
    The best video player for ios
  • Subtitles feature doesn’t work 3/5

    By parishilton42069
    The app finds subtitles for movies, which is great, but the subtitles are always way ahead of the audio, and when I try to adjust the subtitles delay, nothing changes. It would be 5 stars for me if the subtitles could be adjusted, but I’m really only using it for that, so it’s a disappointment for me.
  • Didn’t work properly anymore 2/5

    By Ronnie702
    Videos coming in low polity the pauses and when it comes back in the sound is going faster no matter what buttons you touch the screen in the changes everything not a great player
