Great on Amazon Fire TV stick! Not in Amazon Appstore, so had to sideload onto my 2016 Amazon Fire TV stick, which was a hassle, but worth the effort! Using it to play videos from shared folders on my networked Windows computer. Superb video and audio quality and sync, including subtitles. Even plays x265 video with only the occasional glitch. Much better than any other network streaming I've tried, no server app needed, highly recommended!
Need improvements While screen mirroring audio video don't get synchronized. audio is played first and then after 4 seconds particular visual comes on TV . Plz remove this bug so that we can enjoy online movies on big tv screen. And let give a txt box in for subtitles search, Bcoz for online videos also ,we can search subtitle manually by entering movie name........ best part is subtitle can be casted while screen mirroring and it don't require to keep phone display on.
Best player out there but... It would be nice to be able to select the directories you may want to limit the audio and video file scan to. Otherwise, what you get is a mix of WhatsApp or other downloaded files that come unsolicited into your vlc libraries (classic example are the ringtones you get from the net)... And that sucks, as other players let you choose the library directory...
Very Impressed Having been a user of MX Player for many years, it's performance of late has been disappointing. So I thought I'd give VLC Player a go instead. Well, I have made a good decision. It's fast, plays everything I throw at it and above all, it works perfectly with my WD My Cloud NAS storage. It also loads very quickly with no buffering or freezing up. So I highly recommend this app.
Great app. It has good performance, a clean interface without any ads (looking at you MX player), and good customization options. 2 problems I have though: - Can't delete files off of the SD card, even though the storage permission has been given. - An option to disable subtitles permanently would be nice.
The perfect media player! I was using the built in video player to watch my saved videos, but I had a video downloaded that was recorded in an ultra wide aspect ratio. The built in player stretched it vertically to fill my screen and I couldn't get it not to. So I looked into another media that I had more options and I came across VLC which I had already had on my PC . It had plenty of fit options and showed the resolution of all my videos and length and had good organization, It's great and I love it!
