VLC Player is a can do all media playback application that allows you to view all types of content files from your storage accounts ranging from iTunes to Dropbox. The most important thing with a mobile port of this nature is how easy it makes it to add files and VLC passes the test with flying colors. You can easily log in to your cloud services and playback content and with more complex software such as iTunes you can connect to your computer and follow the included directions in a few steps. You can also enter an address for downloads or quickly connect to media severs such as Plex to playback content. The design is conducive to knowing what you need to do and then quickly executing it or just following the directions and then executing. The sleek colorful interface is nice to look at and falls in line more with a video service application than a utility one and that is what helps make it a success.
VLC is the best media player on IOS, my only problem is when I need to add a separate subtitle file, I must name it similar to the video filename, but it's not easy to change the subtitle file name to the same video name because the app don't show the exactly name of the video file, so I transfer it to another app to copy the exact name of video.
unlike PC version which includes a feature that enables you to open subtitle file directly to the video from your files, and in the iOS version the subtitle file doesn't even shown in the display.
So please fix this problem and VLC will always stay the best.
Seems to be one of the only solid media player on iOS
This can play most of my video files well without any major issues. Transferring videos via iTunes is smooth. The interface looks nice and sleek. One major flaw is that the screen turns grey for a few seconds when resuming a video after switching back from other apps. Also, swiping gestures for volume, brightness, and seeking are very finicky. Other than that, it seems to perform well and is quite battery-efficient.
