UPDATE: Passcode issue

Atin Singhal

UPDATE (v3.0.2): This update fixed the issues of authentication

UPDATE (v3.0.1): The last update fixed the issue where Touch ID was allowed to unlock even when it was turned off in VLC settings but now when it’s turned on, then also Touch ID unlock option isn’t available or popping up. But still its not that big of an issue like the last one...

OLD REVIEW (v3.0.0): Since the last update even if I turn Touch ID authentication off, the app gives a pop up for unlocking via Touch ID. Fix it ASAP. Issue could be seen on iPhone 7 and iPad Pro 9.7. I’m sure other devices are facing it too...

Developer Response

Please try version 3.0.1 which should have fixed this issue.

Play button not working after pause and minimising the app


After updating many version one problem is still there while watching movies and in mid pause the movie and minimise the app and do some other work, again when maximising the app and when pressing play button is not responding, for playing same moving again I have to click on “done” on left of the screen on top tab and once again open the same movie then it is playing from same place,
Please fix this issue

Crashing on iPhone 6S|10.2


Updated on 10th Sept 2017, tried playing a couple of videos today after the update. All videos crash the app after 2-3 minutes of play time. Please fix the bug. It is quite irritating. Will have to switch to another player for now. So frustrating :(

Update 1: Bug fixed in a week. Thank you :)

But I am wary of updating to a new version now.
