VLC Remote® lets you remotely control your VLC Media Player on your Mac or PC. For iPhone iPad!
Awarded Gizmodo's “Essential iPhone App” three years running. Awarded T3's “Best iPhone Apps”.
The free version is identical to the paid version except for two things:
1) The free version shows adverts.
2) The free version won't let you browse to open files from the remote. You'll have to get up of your sofa and do that manually until you upgrade!
“The new VLC Remote app is simply stunning! It works a treat and it feels professional and powerful. Love it.”
- Adam, London

Ratings and Reviews
Very, very buggy
A good idea and would be great if it was stable. This app is probably the most buggy app I've ever seen. How could anyone possibly buy the full version after trying this effort at an app.
Constant crashing. Crashes while setting up remote control so much that it took 30 mins to set up.
When you want to use it it's hit and miss for about ten attempts to get it to launch without freezing.
Wait for a stability update.
Thought this would be quite straightforward but intact was very difficult to set up. The accompanying instructions and help were vague and didn't relate to the remotes settings options. I did eventually get it working and tested it out for 10 mins but it then lost the connection which I imagine during a film takes all the good from this app. This is a great idea but I wouldn't be spending my hard earned on the full version till I seen 4 stars plus (",)
Waste of time. Followed all the instructions: nada. Waste of valuable life time. No doubt the fault of the 4 different Macs (2 of which brand new) and 3 seperate iPhones. I'm sure they're all defective not this app. That and I only spent about 5 hours with 2 tech heads rather than devoting my whole life and an entire IT department to getting it to work. I know, shame on me expecting this app to ...I don't know ... just ...work.
