Love it! I use vlc on all my computers, Linux, and occasionally when I stoop to using Winblows. Been a fan of vlc for years. Just now trying out the mobile version on Android, and already absolutely love it. Has the same feel as the computer version, and plays all the formats I need. I've tried a handful of other media players for Android, but I often see a message about how "this file can't be played, read, or supported", blah, blah, blah. Not with vlc though. All good on the format front. Kudos, to the devs!
I love the overall feel,but the issue is that it fails to index any video or audio files and I've to refresh it every time the app starts to index them again. Also if you switch to another app and come back the seek freezes or it doesn't continues from the same place. If you fix the landscape issue and make it smart to detect if the video is in portrait or landscape and lock it, it would make the player much more ease to use.
Good but not great What I want is a music player like the one in my Cowon/Plenue Z2. It has two features that VLC lacks. One is 'shuffle play' that will play every song in my 4500-song collection at random. The other is 'auto continue' -- when it gets to the end of an album, it automatically continues with whatever is next. PLEASE add these features to VLC. I don't know how much longer the Z2 will last.
so many problems on TV box this app has so many problems on TV boxes, first when media are removed, the app still index them, second, when playing a video, that's it! You cannot control or at least get some info of where you are at when paused, except pausing, you can do or see nothing else. useless for tv boxes. the screenshots where you see timeline and controls, don't show on android tv boxes
Doesn't like to seek If I try to seek several times in a video it freezes up and VLC wont work until I reboot my device. I do love when I'm hooked up to HDMI, that it only displays on my TV by default. Edit: It's bean crashing a lot and when it does my tablet reboots.
One stop for audio/video player. VLC has done it. Excellent music and video player with minimum memory footprint than most lightweight players. Only thing is there is no setting for earphone button customization because of that i can't change next/previous song with earphones.
VLC on Android 2.0.6
2.0.6 is an update fixing crashes, updating codecs and saving the audio delay for BT headphones.
2.0 introduces a large number of features, notably network disk browsing (Windows shares, UPnP, NFS, SFTP...), favorite folders and URLs, video playlists, popup video, new permissions support, subtitles download, rewritten notifications and control, and a new history.
The Android TV and Android versions were merged, so that every device can get the updated Android TV look.
