Vlc chromecast playback bug!

When you connect to chromecast and select the speed of say 1.5x there is no change of speed, in fact the video starts to run faster at 1.5x but audio is at 1.00x at times or only the time would wrongly be shown no change of speed of audio/video. It needs a fix. As connected to chromecast the speed option becomes useless as speed won’t change, this is the same when we toggles the speed first and then connect to chromecast, the default speed is 1.00x which cannot be toggled due to bug. I tried reporting on vlc this error but it’s a tedious process to authenticate e mail, have limitation of time.

UPDATE: Passcode issue

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.
