Used to love this app, but stopped working properly.

This app used to work great. I use this app regularly to watch class lectures I’ve downloaded to my laptop. I used to be able to easily upload the video files to my iCloud or airdrop them to my iPad and then just copy them to my VLC library. I think the problem may have occurred following an iPad update a few months ago, but since then I only have the option to “open” a video in VLC rather than copy it, and that doesn’t even work. The app opens and the video neither play nor appears in the library. I’ve even tried grabbing my file through the cloud services on the app as well with just as little success. I also tried deleting and re-installing the app. Nothing. The only way to get videos into the app now is to connect my iPad to the laptop and use iTunes, which I find highly inconvenient. It takes longer and I hate using iTunes. Please fix this!!

downloads stopped working after last iOS update, flawless before that

This app has been a Godsend, plays anything, I’ve been using the desktop version for years so using this on my iPhone was a no brainer.

The download/media library has stopped working as of the last iOS update. Used to work flawlessly but now when i download videos from my NAS, they do no appear in my media library once completed. I can tell the downloads completed because the iPhone reports VLCs file system usage increased by the same amount as the downloaded file(s). Streaming from my NAS does work perfectly however. Just stuck with an empty media library now.

Issue seen on an iPhone 6 plus. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app did not help.

Absolutely wonderful

I tried using the VLC iOS app back on my iPod Touch 2nd Generation and at that time (2010-ish), I hated it because it was just so unwieldy and subtitles didn’t work well. Thus I switched to AV Player and never looked back... until now - I installed out of curiosity and man have things changed - the interface is punchy, love that my library (with its naming convention already optimized for Plex) can be tossed in and organized automatically, subs work wonderfully - I love it thus far. I’m docking a point for the fact that there is not optimization for iPhone X, but once that’s done I will absolutely give this 5/5 stars.

Updated review: app updated for iPhone X - 5 stars
