    This is supposed to be a totally free, no ads, no in-app purchases, no spying app. So why is it insisting, before I can update, that I accept a new permission that allows me, (the user), the ability, to make in-app purchases? The ability to make in-app purchases from within the VLC media player is not exactly in keeping with what I've come expect from this app. In fact it's just the opposite. I won't be updating.

    apk Negative review just because of Latest (October) update problems: 1. Auto rotation Lock is messed now. Give one more option to lock the video in landscape mode but still move left to right landsace when tilted on opposite side. 2. Locking the controls button option should be given right there. Now it requires to go in e dot menu first. 3. Subtitles and other buttons are now too small to register. 4. Forward/backward with button or double click forward/backward animation is now very slowed.

    tv Before the most recent update this would be a 5 star review but the recent update has made network smb shares basically unusable as the load time to the file structure takes upward of 5 minutes. Playback is fine once loaded but this was a non issue in the previous version. Until this is fixed I have to give 2 stars as it is no better than any generic video player.

  4. jason storey-avatar

    app Worst update ever. The new update ruins the landscape visuals and everything is so dark on a phone that is on full brightness. I rotate the phone and I can see a washed out bright image. Rotate back to landscape and I only see eyes and eye reflections. The screen is so dark in landscape it ruins all visuals especially a scene shot in darkness. Please fix this. The new UI is terribly dull and scatterbrained and far less intuitive than it was before and this was the best Android video player

    auto New vlc version is worst !!!! Very inconvenient to use! I wanted to give 0 stars! Previous version was very appropriate and easy to use. Putting screen into horizontal and then locking it up is mess. Not at all happy. Change the settings as soon as possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    review Not a fan of the new ui. 1) It's hard to see control buttons when the video playing is showing a bright background. 2) it's no longer possible to quickly swipe right to switch tabs when browsing folders. 3) no vertical view on folder tab. 4) every navigation requires more taps now since the bottom bar dissapears on some pages, like the folders.

    chromecast Awesome job on the most recent update! UI looks great! Been saving my place on local media for months flawlessly. I am trying to think of a particular Windows feature that was missing from the android version of VLC, but either it eludes me or has been added. Best video player, and plays m3u pls radio streams. But if I right click open several media on PC and choose play (in VLC) or add to (VLC) plalist, don't open up a dozen instances (plz fix) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    tv apk The new UI is terrible, very hard to navigate compared to the previous version. Why do frontend developers insist on reinventing everything when users are already accustomed to a solid working interface? Scrolling through different sources involves both vertical and horizontal scrolling, and the text is constrained inside tiny icons. What happened to a good old list where I can see all the text. Also ran into crashes in the first minute of using it, trying to edit a UPNP favorite. Please revert.

  9. Itai Nelken-avatar

    Itai Nelken


    apkpure Vest multimedia player ever! It will play almost any format, and you can even watch youtube on it (by copying the video link and pasting it in new stream) without ads. The ui is realy great and easy to use especially after the last update, and the video controls are really good and intuitive. Great app for me an essential app for android.

    equalizer Old version was better. And with cleaner UI/UX. Cons - (1) This new version takes multiple tries to register swipe for scrolling, earlier scrolling was very responsive and smoother. (2) The favourite folders are shown as big blocks in horizontal fashion, rather than vertical, which is again more inconvenient, because it requires unnecessary scrolling. (3) The menu option on the left sidebar was so good, now all just cramped into ...More tab. Verdict - I regret updating the app.

    The new update is excellent. I loved this app even before and i recommended this app to all my friends this app is very good, but they hid the lock button in options which was directly available in the player interface, so we had no problem in locking the screen, but now the main problem is i have to open options first and then click on lock. Not any other problem. Please restore that lock button in it's last position with next update.

  12. Deerghayu Phukan-avatar

    After the latest update VLC deleted the option to lock video orientation landscape button on both sides(i.e. left and right). Now it can be locked on only one side, to watch it on other side we need to manually again unlock and vice versa. Really very much disappointed with VLC. This is the very sole reason for me to switch to another application.

  13. Saurabh Majumdar-avatar

    Saurabh Majumdar


    It is really unfortunate that VLC has gone in the wrong direction. The UI is not much better and it is unusable with Bluetooth earphones due to removal of audio delay. There is no choice now but to move to alternatives and hope Videolan gets its things together in the future.

  14. Rick Powell-avatar

    Rick Powell


    Tho there's no perfect video player for Chrome OS, the previous version of VLC was the best option, particularly since it's the only one I've found with keyboard shortcuts. With this update, I can't manually load subtitles; all the bottom controls are obscured most of the time, even when the video is paused; there was a random glitch during which the cursor froze as a grabber hand, not just for VLC but throughout the system, and so I couldn't click on anything, anywhere - I had to force quit.

  15. Justin Tate-avatar

    Justin Tate


    Incredibly sad to see this one go. Used it for many years and even on pc. But every video now is about 60% grey choppy screens. And the new ui doesnt allow my home bar to pop up. Had to hold the power button until the shut down menu appeared just to close the virus.

    You need to remove the no in-app purchases from description, and quit LYING. I accept your apology you NEVER GAVE ME. There is NO MENTION of what the in-app purchases are for. VLC is intended for everyone, is totally free, has no ads, no in-app-purchases, no spying and is developed by passionate volunteers. All the source code is available for free. NEW PERMISSION -- IN-APP PURCHASES $0.99 TO $11.99 Hahahaha..must be a Demoncrat liberal.

    Best use app for playing music for me. I've been using this for long time, and still I can't point out a reasonable mistake or fault in this app. Unlike other local music apps, where you get hoards of ads, I don't get to see ads here. That's the prime plus point I see here. And the functions too, very well done, arranged & sorted. Great to have such applications.

    Bug report: Repeatedly asking for NAS password and not remembering it for each and every folder and each and every file accessed (in password protected directory). SMB share. Problem affects newest version of VLC on Samsung S20, but was not affecting an older version running on a Samsung S8.

  19. Chipper Xavier-avatar

    Since the latest update, the viewing window will not center on the screen. I utilize a Samsung tablet which is connected via an HDMI cable to a larger monitor for movies. When watching a movie the picture now appears at either the top or bottom of the connected monitor instead of the center. The only workaround is to force the image to appear on both screens, which centers the image. This is a software failure not present in older versions of VLC. Please correct this issue, developers.

    Very unhappy with the 3.3 update (October 2020). I've used VLC for many years and this update is terrible. Maybe bring back the old version as VLC Classic?? The new UI is horrible, the app seems to be hung while "parsing". Unusable, thankfully I still have the pi player still installed on my phone

    I just have change it 3 to 4 star as you guys have made a really handsome user interface in this update. I will make 5 it star if these following features are included. It will be amazing if you add HDR feature or digital video noise cancellation. Finding previously created playlist is not added that is very dissapointing. Also it can not search and add subtitle from the internet automatically even if you are watching a well known movie which is a very snappy feature to it's major rival.

  22. Jay Doolittle-avatar

    No longer plays clear videos. Video lags behind audio and video grays-out to catch up. Videos are no longer watchable. Why rearrange the menu and controls? Everything worked fine, why hide and mix around the icons in the app? Fix the playback and quit playing around with the location of the menus and icons.

  23. Christopher Klassen-avatar

    Christopher Klassen


    What did you do?!? I have a bunch of videos on my PC that I used to be able to watch on either my phone or tablet over my home Wi-Fi. Now all it does when I click the icon for my PC server is spin in circles and say "loading". Put it back!

    The past version is buggy and randomly reads and rereads the folders and gets stuck. It eats up battery power. I sent a bug report but didn't get an acknowledgement. 2020-09-27 The update yesterday fixed the issue as far as I can tell. But the interface changed again and it is not as logical as the last version. Menus are not always available in the view and so you have to change the orientation. GUI not well thought out. So only 3 stars.

  25. Wall00-avatar



    This app is great. No other media player I have used has all the gesture control, equaliser for sound with presets, screen adjustment & can read almost any format. This is the best for video. Some of the interface tweaks on the latest version are good but some of them are questionable.

    For some reason it puts a random cover art on my unknown album. I reloaded all my music and it did it again with a nother random album cover. Can you please fix this. I also miss the ability to add to the now playing list of music with the play button with a plus in the top corner.

    This player must have forward / fast forward / next frame of 15 seconds button, Which almost all players have it. Solve BUG when we play any downloaded movie video which has been downloaded with subtitles, these videos doesn't display subtitles & 99% of time the inbuilt option available to download subtitles doesn't search subtitles.

    *UPDATE* 9/27/20 Tried to contact the developer but found no email! After recent update the program is horrible!! Songs won't play when you select them, you select 1 song and a totally different one starts! The songs randomly stop in the middle and a new song starts. Other programs have gotten glitchy, phone runs slower, heats up sometimes. Settings are ignored right after setting them. Playlists don't keep playing. Wow the list keeps going and going! Was good but now I will gladly uninstall.

    Greatest video player I liked it, I'm using this since on windows the ui is great. I have some recommendations I hope the devs would notice. •Add folder on Audio section •Add sort by time on video I don't like the new update on ui I prefer the old one.

    While changing audio track from one language to another audio is not audible for 1-2sec after changing audio track. While forwarding through seek by finger it is not going forward instead it is coming again from where I started seeking or from 1-2sec previously. And through seek only minimum of 10sec I think I'm able to seek. It would be better I'm able to seek less than 10sec.

    Broken since the last major update: Local network folders that were configured stop functioning with the new update. Never functioned: Casting to chromecast or any device, unable to control audio through vlc. Terrible limitation. Fixes exist like in app "local cast". Missing feature very strange: Ability to unselected subfolders from being added to database. Once root folders are selected, individual subflolders can't be unselected. Still a fan, always a fan. Please fix & respond to emails

    3.3.0 version has vibrate issue when increase or decrease volume and brightness. I found one problem - when using multiscreen(smart view) connected to a smart TV, the resolution not covering the entire screen and buggy too..it's not covering the full and covering half screen and 1/4th portion only..Developers please try to play any video through connected with smart tv and watch out the difference. You can notice the resolution error!! VLC team please try to fix this

    There should be an option to set custom number of seconds for fast seeking button and double tap fast seeking. This helps me skip intro faster when i am binge watching a show downloaded in my device. Also the play button should resume the video which I last watched in the playlist from the point where I had left off.

    Good but does not support .CUE file reading of big flac files & also does not have option to select AAUDIO audio output in settings as stellio music player. AAUDIO output is latest android audio output api , which has lowest latency than Audio Track , OpenSL ES .. Though desktop vlc reads CUE files , android vlc does not reads it, what a dissapointment . Also no option to select latest android audio output api = AAUDIO.

A new problem occured last night i.e. when I take the video to any time (say 1:44:00 hour or any) It always goes to any distinct time (00:07:32Hour ). It means I cannot increse the time of video.

    What the heck VLC, why did you change the perfectly fine UI. I don't mind a change in design but you made the buttons so small compared to the previous version. More importantly an important feature for me is the screen lock rotation. Before i can lock it landscape and if I switch the orientation the video will rotate. However now when i lock orientation, its just the same as the lock screen function. Guess ill just uninstall and download an older version from the internet

    The new UI is okaish they should improve it little bit more.there is bug that when i play video on full screen mode then subtitle goes down and i can't see any of subtitle.i have suggestion :lock button should be near play button

    The new update may have fixed a ton of bugs, but the interface change was completely unnecessary. I am going to side load an apk to revert to an older version of the app. I hope the developers change their minds on the new look.

    Hideous new layout is upsetting. I see absolutely no benefits to this ugly new appearance and am deeply upset that I have no option to change it back to how it appeared before the latest update. Why would you ruin something that didn't need changing?

    This latest update sucks. Renamed folders and made them undeletable. Can't group tv shows by folder. Just endless lists of individual shows.

    Ugly new interface that made vlc worse my favorites are now impossible to see clearly and some idiot thinks a new ui solves issues that were never there. I think I will find a new player now as vlc has forgotten what it's like to browse network media.

    I don't really like the ui update. Also I cannot cast anymore without it stopping after a couple minutes. I feel like the last update broke a perfectly perfect media playing tool. Looking for something else.
