I really like vlc, use it on every device, but the latest update causes my HTC One m9 to eject my SD card during scanning and therefore prevents me from actually listening to music. This happend with an update a few months ago, sadly I don't remember when, it got fixed, and now the bug is back. Please fix, I want to use vlc again :/
The new update broke background playing. If I have paused a 1 hour audio book, it can be that the pausing disappears. Previous version didn't lose the paused state. Now I'm taking a screenshot when I'm pausing the audio... UI has degraded also. If I'm playing a folder, the playback bar in the bottom is so transparent that it's hard to see and click.
Update (Nov/Dec2017) now means the player is not persistant when not in use. Is there an option for this? By persistant I mean open app, select music, listen to music, press pause, unspecified time later (less than 4 hrs) press unpause yet app shuts down and I have to select mucic again. Otherwise vlc is 5* on the PC as it doest shut down between songs or films after pausing!
Used to be absolutely perfect lightweight functional app so obviously that had to be changed. Last two updates (particularly this last one) have destroyed the playlists. Now acting just like windows media player, filing many albums in pieces or just not at all. Will delete and look elsewhere.
Overall, I liked the update. Aesthetically it's a massive improvement. But most of my music no longer appears in the Artist or Album panes. Although they are still accessible through the songs list, it's difficult to find a song or listen to a full album with this problem. And now that I've worked out how to re-add everything, now I have doubles of every song appearing in my directory. Come on guys.
Latest Update has removed/deleted my various Playlists which were organised with painful efforts! Very disappointing! Please incorporate facility for editing/erasing of unwanted sounds at begining/end/or even in between any musical track.
