Great sound


And that is the only reason I put up with this app.

Songs constantly stop playing on this version!

Couple of iOS versions ago, music playback was slightly garbled and it took developers almost a year to rectify the problem.

Get your act together.

Works well, looking forward to updates.!.


Plays all of my media files just fine, the pause feature works, but whenever I pause the media I am watching & go to the home screen or another app briefly, then return back to the VLC app (without ever permanently closing it off) & I un-pause the paused media, I see a black screen instead of the image where I paused said media, & also un-pausing it plays sound only with a black screen for 3-5 seconds before the media re-appears again. It would be great if this could be fixed with an update.. Another thing that would be VERY useful is being able to play the media in a minimized window (picture in picture) on the iPad Pro much like the Netflix app offers. The above reasons are why I knocked off 1 star. I appreciate the updates & quick fixes you guys provide! This is on my 2nd Gen 12.9 iPad Pro 2, running iOS 11.0.1. THANK-YOU for improving the app!



It does what I need and a little bit more however I’ve noticed it uses quite a bit of battery...
