After the newest mess of updates, I can't close the app, it won't pick up videos where I pause, it picks a random previous time as a "save" so pausing a 2 hour video can jump it back to the 5 minute mark. Fix this please, I love VLC but the recent updates messed it up bad, I'll be using a different app until then
This app has the potential to be a superb app but unfortunately it's always full of bugs. With each update there seem to be more bug than than the previous version. With the current update I cannot close the app. I've to use a third party app to hibernate or else vls will keep lingering in the notification.
(2017) 2 years after my first review. Still an incredibly awesome app. Still think it's awesome that VLC provides reasons for each permission within the app's description (it should really be required for all apps). (2015) Your app went above and beyond to elaborate on the specifics of why you required each permission. Thank you. I have never seen that before, for any other app.
This app is really good. All it needs now is a way to change the orange font to a user selected color. I like the dark theme but I would prefer the orange or be something else like grey blue or white for a more flat look I also noticed that the media player won't close even when I force close the app and close the notification it refuses to go away.
Latest version something wrong with. If even stop and close music it stays on notification and lockscreen home screen. There is no way to disappear.
Always loved the app, but the latest big update has bugged out my notifications. The persistent now playing won't go away until I restart the phone.
