Generally very happy with this app. Would love it if it could persistently remember where I left off in a file when the app is closed. I use it to listen to podcasts on my commute, and leave it paused for hours at a time so I can continue later; but I lose my place if I use the phone heavily enough for Android to close the app in the background (or the phone reboots). That's a great feature of the desktop VLC. With that, this app would definitely be 5 stars!
It's the gold standard of video players. I'm not just saying that because I like it, many people don't even bother encoding files in forms that the built-in Android media player can use. Also, it's free so you have no excuse to not be using it. The simple fact is that it's necessary to own in the 21st century.
MX PLayer Pro has always been my main player while I've been patiently waiting for VLC to surpass it. It's my player of choice on my computer, and with chromecast support working well it has now become my player of choice in my Android devices, which I use way more than my computer. I knew you would eventually outdo them all, and you have. I'd be happy to support your work by paying or donating. Thank you for your great effort!!
Used VLC for a long time. Very happy. The latest release supports Chromecast, and this is very good. However I do not use it because it is very slow. It appears that it needs to perform a conversion of a mpg4 before it casts it. As before I use VLC to play on my android phone and use the built-in android cast, no conversion delay. If VLC cast performance could be improved I would use it.
This app sucks! Don't waste time installing it! My Note 8 has the newest updates & this app "claims" to play .iso files. Total bulls**t... It loads the file, then crashes every single time. My pc plays .iso movies with no problem, so VLC is garbage. What a waste of time this app is.
I used to be able to resume my playlists from wherever I last left off. That feature is no longer available after update. It makes it especially annoying when trying to resume unfinished podcasts, the next time I load up the app. Please fix it.
