This app would be fantastic if it weren't for one thing that, if you watch subtitled films, will make you run to an alternative media player. The problem is that the subtitles play on the screen of the actual film rather than in the black bar underneath – with widescreen films this is absolutely unacceptable. In some of the other iOS media player options (e.g. PlayerXtreme) the subtitles show beneath the film in the black space, but not in the VLC iOS media player where they play directly on the film. This is not particular to the files but to the media players. I find this unfortunate because in all other respects, I like VLC more than PlayerXtreme, but the subtitling is a huge problem for VLC. If that get's fixed I will most certainly switch to VLC and give it 5 stars.
Don't know if IOS 9 screwed it up
I watched an hour and fifteen minute video and it took my battery from 97% down to 22%. Brightness was set to about 25-30% but it shouldn't drain almost all of my battery. I've like VLC because it gave me different options for getting media on my iPhone (I hate having only have one way to get videos on my phone.) but now that it is destroying my battery life I will have to look at other options.
Best video player period
Not only does VLC play all the different format videos I have, it also connects to my NAS which runs a dlna server flawlessly. Why does this app not show as #1 when I searched for dlna client. It doesn't even show at all. All the other apps don't work. Use this one.
