Google Play Reviews

  1. Max Luang-avatar

    This app is pretty good. Plays a lot of file formats and does what it is intended perfectly. I can also group music/ video and make playlists. But there is really 1 feature that I feel is really missing. "Sort by date" in the video section. I am serious, I cannot search through all of my videos for a specific file name all the time. You can sort by date in audio, but not video. Other than that, app is great.

  2. Kendrick Brown-avatar

    apk Disappointed & Frustrating. The brightness seems to be interacting with the video's lighting (I think). If the video's lighting is dark (shot at night) the app's brightness tends to also get dark and sometimes the app's brightness bounces from 100% to nothing at all to the point where I can't see anything. I updated it to the latest version but alas, nothing has changed. I've been using VLC for many years now and this is the first time I encountered such thing. Fix this, ASAP. 😤

  3. we can-avatar

    download Very good app and open sourced. Thank you. Just one feature is very much needed: changing playback through gesture. In today's era we watch lots of videos and life is short. So one can't afford to watch at normal speed and so for me changing speeds is very frequent even within a single video. It was easy in mxplayer by two finger vertical swipe but vlc doesn't support that. Only this lack of feature has kept me from switching to vlc, as you know, life is short. Do inform me when this comes.

  4. Moico Sama-avatar

    chromecast This was the best app player for me at least until the last version. Now suddenly, when I open the player the screen it become white and the player closes with the message "VLC can't open". I tried uninstall and install again and first time it works perfectly, but if i close the app and try to open it appears the previous message "VLC can't open". Please, fix that problem.

  5. Andrew Davies-avatar

    equalizer Up to now, this has been my number once choice for media player for both android and windows pc for many years. My Samsung galaxy j4 core worked great with this app until today where it would only open up a blank screen and then crash. I've forced stop the app and also uninstalled and reinstalled but still had the same. I'm so very disappointed I can't use the app any more.

  6. Dominic Matthews-avatar

    3.0 13 apk Used to be essential, being the only Android app that could play action cam video (GoPro, etc.) files, but not anymore - it just does nothing when you try to play such a video (no error message - appears to start the video, then just goes back to the file browser screen). Useless to me now! :(

  7. Chris Shewel-avatar

    free download When VLC was the only media player that worked I had a great love in my heart for it. However in its current incarnation it is a gigantic buggy mess that largely doesn't work with any of my other tech. Casting is buggy and constantly freezes. And my number one complaint is that the app is continually opening in the background and playing music when I don't ask it to. This app is a mess and it only gets 3 stars until they fix.

  8. Stasys Kulvis-avatar

    tv I think that it would be great if you could put some more features in. I think it would be nice to have a more convenient option for the alphabetical scroll, one that is instantly available without having to fumble around with the tiny scrollbar. Would be nice if it was still on the right hand side of the list view, but somehow big enough for an actual thumb. Also would be nice if there was an option to lock the header bar while scrolling through the list. Thank you :)

  9. Shaheer Ahmad-avatar

    auto Lots of bugs has been fixed. but there are still 3 most irritating bugs which i am not comfortable with. 1. Everytime i switch to another app while watching a video and when i switch back the subtitles doesn't show until a replay the video. 2. Sometimes audio latency does not adjust with bluetooth earphones until you restart the app or adjust audio delay manually. 3. Sometimes video list shows empty everytime i open the app. Video list doesn't show until we refresh the list.

  10. Sean McElaney-avatar

    beta Built in volume booster that works awesome!!... Been using VLC prob like 10+ years, and on a handful of diff Android phones and tablets, as well as a few diff Windows computers, both desktops and laptops, and even a netbook back in da day... Havent really tried any other media players since i found VLC since this does everything u need and more! I've told many friends and fam members bout u guys ova the years. Keep up the great work!

  11. Aditya Veer-avatar

    The best video player out there. It was the best on desktop when it came out, and it's the best on phones. Able to play all types of video files and all the usual features of a video player are available. Best part - no ads! I used to have MX player earlier, but since I started using this, I've never gone back to it.

  12. Storm Machinine-avatar

    Storm Machinine


    It is a favorite video player [of mine] and second best to Samsung's video player (which isn't available on Huawei devices) I recommend this app to anyone. It allows subtitles, duel-audio video, buffering, and more. The app also has music playing though I found the music player to not be great at categorizing and making a self-playlist of audio albums or artists.

  13. Steven Calcano-avatar

    This video player absolutely sucks. Always letting me down especially when it comes to chromecasting. Ever since the feature has been added I have never been able to have anything cast for more than 5 minutes without losing picture. I'm officially done with VLC

  14. Josh R-avatar

    I have this app solely to cast video and it doesn't really do that well at all. Volume control doesn't work (meaning I have to use my tv remote instead of phone to change volume). Organisation of videos is clunky. As such I have uninstalled.

    Dear sir I have also used VLC player in my window-7 laptop which have 2Gb RAM. When we are play video with 1.8 speed and when forward the video by select Ctrl+ forward key then VLC player video stuck. Please suggest me what I do. I am not want to use any other player because your player features are good.

  16. Parmar Vivek-avatar

    When I cast from VLC Player, there will be times where it runs smoothly for an hour+ Other times, it will stop for no reason, forcing me to recast to my screen. It’s mad annoying when I have to do this every 5 minutes. Any solutions to this problem?

  17. Bhuvanesh Singh-avatar

    The subtitles get cropped too when using zoomed in mode in 21:9 displays. fix it please. I have enabled the group video by name feature but it doesn't seem to work. Note there are hundreds of individual files showing in the home area.

  18. Mark Smith-avatar

    I been using VLC Player for a long time now...years and years..and i can honestly say that I cant recall a time when there was an update that made me feel like I need to pay money to use a top of the line Media player. So yeah...thats " My Experience ".🙂👍💯




    Very good video player. Only one thing is missing that when we use PIP mode then we can't control the screen brightness of the phone and it depends on video brightness. Please solve this issue. Love VLC player

  20. ren moulton-avatar

    Man. Your added cast function from your video app is better than any of the pure play paid casting applications. Nice to see a company that cares more about added features as other companies do on leading functionality with their core products. You guys (and gals) deserve the millions!

    Used to be my go to app for streaming to Chromecast, but recently the "connected to renderer" has all but ruined the ability to push movies to Chromecast. I've had to use MX Player in the meantime. Please fix this!

  22. Frahane-avatar

    Video Pop up playing mode activating interface is not showing, so I can't activate pop-up video. PiP fonctions (parameters) are there activated but while playing a video you can't pop-up it up. Please fix it.

  23. Ehis Michael-avatar

    I'd rate this player 5 stars if it has an option to disable headset control like MX player. Sometimes the headset malfunctions especially Bluetooth headset and you just want to disable pause and play or volume control for headset. Please include that soon. Thanks.

  24. Steve Fisher-avatar

    This has always been and shall always be the best all round video watching app. On Samsung tab S6 it is a bit flaky. Crashing a lot. All other devices it's great.

  25. Alicia Fowler-avatar

    By far still the best application for video files. I have personally used VLC for over a decade on my phone, tablet and computer and I would recommend to everyone.

    The previous update was good, was very handy all tools were available in it.After the update no tools to decrease or increase the playback speed.Please make the changes having all the tools to make use of in a video/movie.

  28. Lebo Masilo-avatar

    Has vlc contracted corona virus too? Why do we have to update apps for them to not work after. My vlc just freezes without showing anything. It's just a black screen. Please fix or send updates to make it function well again.

  29. Faizur Rahman Johan-avatar

    this is a very good app for video playback, it has lots of good features. the only thing i am missing is subtitle repositioning, with this feature this app could be the best video player in mobile.

  30. Diaa Nabil-avatar

    I highly recommend this app, if you want to replace Huawei Apps (ads, take too much time to open) so this app is the best solution for playing audio and video.

  31. Shaymaa Salah-avatar

    I have updated the app for the third time , just right now, and unfortunately , the same problem still there. When I speed up the audio, the voice corrupts!

  32. Steve Mann-avatar

    Originally using MX Player Pro and have found this a lot better. Easier interface settings. Generally my experience is positive, appears to be more reliable.

  33. Lewtus G-avatar

    Getting better, would like to see playlist when in shuffle mode though. The new UI looks pretty good but all it does is search and search it ends up at 1% or 99% the parsing feature doesn't work anymore

  34. Vishal Singh-avatar

    I don't know why the subtitles are not showing while playing the video even though I have selected it. Please team VLC help with this. I am very annoyed by this issue!

  35. Kitoy-avatar

    The Best player ever you can get! And also you can download subs from here. I love this app tbh, very easy to use. Just one thing tho, why dont the subs display sometimes? In some movies?

  36. Link113-avatar

    Nice UI and it plays all the formats I need it to. I took away one star, however, since you cannot edit playlists; you have to manually remove and add songs in whatever you want them to be ordered instead of moving the songs within the playlist. Please add the ability to move songs within playlists without having to delete them from the playlist. Edit: It has been added. Thank you.

  37. Mbuso Mahlangu-avatar

    Good music and video player. I just want you guys to make the app access subfolders and immediately open them like Windows Media Player. This also applies to your PC application exe file ofcourse.

  38. dedan omondi-avatar

    Frequently reloads and fails to play also very ineffective when selecting other item from different group, reloades forever. Just isn't efficient as it used to be

    Great app. Would have given 5 stars but it's not good for audiobooks as it doesn't keep its place when closing down

  40. shawn tane-avatar

    Uninstalling because it had over ran my data limit for a week, before the update. & Now I tried this morning it used over 58mb before noon, so I may lose video player but phone won't run out of data when I leave home again

  41. Sparsha Dhar-avatar

    Every time after locking screen and then unlocking or pressing the home button without closing and again returning to it, I have to load the subtitles again from the directory

  42. Ajay Lalbeharie-avatar

    Ajay Lalbeharie


    I would've given 5 stars, but the shuffle algorithm sucks. It will choose from the same limited number of albums, even though I have a few hundred to choose from on my local network and it will play the first song from that album instead of being random. Sort this out and I'll change my rating as I think the sound quality is great on your app.

  43. TB A-avatar

    The new updates are terrible. They make the product almost completely unusable compared to previous versions. It should not take 10 seconds or more to load a playlist, and I don't care how many tracks there are on the playlist. Playlists linger after I have tried to delete them. The only thing the updates have fixed is blank playlists showing up. That's still simply not good enough if the trade off is an app that lags so much you're considering using the crappy pre-installed app. Nonsense.

  44. Muhammad Ali-avatar

    I m feeling so angry.. whenever i play a video the screen turns gray for a short period( maye fo 3 to 10 sec but it sucks) it is too much now 😣 fix it yaaarrr

    I've used VLC (pretty regularly) on this phone for 2 years, and for some reason today it felt the need to re-scan my entire device and spend 5 minutes "parsing media" as if my device never had any files on it. Usually when I open VLC it takes about 2 seconds "parsing media" , not 5 minutes. this is an annoying glitch. also, from my last review: Can't delete files even after allowing storage permission and following instructions for SD card

  49. Musa Bigy-avatar

    Very nice and easier to operate, but forwarding and backward is old, and also the way that it's speed is o

    Always the best app that cannot beat by any others media player since I start using more than seven years from my PC to my Android phones stay and be the champ for the rest of centuries

  52. Sepa72 petatum-avatar

    VLC in all it's forms (I've had it on Windows, Linux, several phones) is awesome. Which is an understatement and a mere review can't really capture the magnitude of my gratefulnes to the developers for having this program, and free aswell!! VLC is free (Availability) VLC supports different platforms (Cross platform) VLC doesn't need extra downloads to support any files you throw at it. It's actually fun to try and open random files with VLC, even something like .mkv (Matroska video format) which I know PS3 struggled back in the day and some other programs need codecs for and also phones need extra programs for, that often are either shady or no where up to speed. VLC is and will always be my choice for a video AND audio player (audio for PC at least). Most video players on Android just can't keep up!

  53. Adrian Love-avatar

    Most complete video player with codecs. Even better than MX Player and other apps. With VLC I played video formats that MX Player and other apps couldn't

    This new update is pathetic. This is thr reason why sometimes i just stick to the old update nomatter how many times i am reminded to. Nomatter what i do to rectify the settings and put my preferences. It takes itself back to default settings. The light adjusts itself, the video starts all over, even after my settings clearly says ask me to resume.. its annoying! I hope the next available update will fix these bugs. Because am ready to move on from this App.

  55. Ciprian-avatar

  57. Theresa Ihezue-avatar

    The subtitle feature is as good as useless... Can't download subtitle, can't even search already downloaded subtitles from your internal storage

  58. JoRa Jungs-avatar

    Great Open-Source-App for listening to music. With some experimenting I found out, that it can even play my synced songs from the nextcloud, after I created a custom path. I'd would a option to change the volume without changing the system volume so you can play the music in an appropriate volume in the background.

    I really love this app, I've been using it for a good 6 years now downloading it on every new phone I bought. Love the playback speed option, the ability to slow music tempo and keep the same tone of the song is a very nice feature, I just wish it kept the sound quality too. Other than that..its a very great app VLC

    I've been using vlc for a long time now but in the recent update vlc won't scan my external anymore, I don't know why but pls fix this.

  61. Vince O'Neill-avatar

    I love VLC. Had it for years on my PC. On the phone Ive stuck with it while it develops and improves. My only problems on the phone are two things. Firstly the auto volume reduction when it thinks the vol is too high. It would be great to disable this. Why ? Because I dont just feed it to headphones. I play back through a Hifi system and its annoying it randomly reduces the volume withiut warning. Two. The auto scrolling of file titles. Really, really annoying when they are long !!!!

  62. Bob Traweek-avatar

    Dysfunctional, Frustrating! Lame Settings. Paused video disonnects casting and begins playing on my tablet at a random time or another video! Timeline repeatedly vanishes and makes resuming video at select points frustrating and embarrassing (audiences). Highly over rated app. Does not play well on my Samsung tablet. Okay to watch a non-stop video but stop and go doesn't conform to a pleasant experience. Nothing like the computer version. Icon signifies that you should avoid this half baked app.

  63. CHARLES Dari-avatar

    Nice app. I really love this app but I can't use one feature on it and that is the Subtitle download feature sometimes I will not get any results when I search and sometimes too I will get but can not download, especially when I'm using a video I downloaded with uc browser. I will be very happy if this is fixed and I will give it 5 ✨.

  64. Eric K-avatar

    Works most of the time. Others it crashes my chromecast and I have to restart my phone and the chromecast

    I use it on pc but didn't know why I haven't used it on my phone until now. Any way, offers all you need. Thank you team. There is an issue though. I saved and listen my podcast on VLC by the list doesn't update with new episodes. What should I do. Delete and save again doesn't sound good for me. Edit: can't play YouTube videos anymore. Some still work but most of them don't. Update: I can't play YouTube videos anymore. Can you fix this please

  66. Harald Øhrn-avatar

    Resize options are all the same aspect ratio, showing the same vertically stretched picture for lots of videos, except 3:4 which is not helping . Most 4K videos, mkv, gets stretched. HD movies also get stretched if I use another player, like YouYube, and then go back to VLC. Only way to fix it is to restart the box. That only fix HD though. Tried reinstalling, but no luck. It refuses to show black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Box is MINIX U1

  67. Joseph Murray-avatar

    VLC plays ALL video files and codecs I am able to download or record, including many lesser known or foreign types, is open source and well tested, and has few bugs and issues. There are certainly some features I wish were added, such as a more intuitive basic interface, a better delineation bwtween advanced and basic features, and tools such as conversion and other features available in the Desktop version, but this app is awesome for most if not all video foles I watch on android

  68. Neil O'Connor-avatar

    Android 10 screen share issues.kindly fixit in next update. There is no screen share and if we play both screen are playing.

  70. Stephen M.-avatar

    Why in the ever loving **** would you give the option of deleting entire storage locations from within the app? I was trying to remove my internal storage from the directory so the app would not detect files from it (only the SD card) using the "delete" option, only to find out that it literally deleted everything on the phone (media-wise). Poof--a thousand priceless photos gone.

  71. Tarun Rawat-avatar

    Latest updates have ruined the performance. Scrolling backward n forward either pauses or jumps randomly anywhere. I dont know why it remembers some random duration of a video played and then plays it from the same spot again and again when put on replay. Scrolling within 10s of interval.. a stupid update.. now i have to stupidly watch the video 10s backward before reaching an exact time.. extremely irritating when watching some long lectures or presentation. Screen orientation is also bad now.

  72. Nate-avatar

    Seek track is impossible to use. Whether I hold the fast forward or rewind button, tap the progress bar, drag the dot on the progress bar, or input seek time manually, nothing works. The behavior is erratic. This app is impossible to use for listening to audiobooks. 8 hours in one sitting with no breaks isn't reasonable, but required for this app to function. I've spent less time listening and more time seeking the spot I left off at. Awful!

  73. plazy p-avatar

    I've been using this as my media player of choice for years but a recent update has made the swipe to seek function difficult to use - resulting in unintended behaviour. For example, swiping left near the right hand of the screen either seeks forward or pauses the video and vice versa. This worked flawlessly before what's happened?

  74. samuel maingi-avatar

    Ave tried many players but i always come back to VLC principally coz of its ability to give excellent audio quality. The only misgiving is since the last update, track titles roll right to left when selecting my playlist. Its irritating to wait for the app to settle so i can see the song titles. Fix it.

  75. Anurag Bhave-avatar

    Hey I can't navigate easily while videos playing, and folder and file details function isn't available.

    Great player, great sound lots of options to make your listening experience better. But the one star they mist for me is with the flow of the app. You can do lots of stuff just wish you could do them quicker and easier. But overall it's a great pick

    The video player is good as I have used it for years on windows(pc) but on android it's not good as it used to be it try to pick up the same style as of pc which quite doesn't suit it as windows and android are different platforms and one more thing it's video decoder is not at all good there are frame buffering and frame skipping also which is not a good thing so please update it in a good old fashioned way and make it no.1 player on android

    I had trouble to increase headset volume for NOKIA 3.2 before I instaled VLC. Thank you guys. Equalizer is awesome.

    This is a great video player that can play files from phone storage and network shares. Chrome cast support has some limits however. Phone display keeps turning off preventing easy movie control, even while charging. Phone volume doesn't control cast volume nor do subtitles work during casting. These issues are simple oversights. Would love to see some fixes soon. Keep up the good work.

    Volume and brightness banner is too big..it almost hide the video u r playing in background to show at what level of brightness/volume level u r on...i have to wait till those indicator vanishes so i can start watching video again...its really very distracting when u change volume or brightness level.. Watching horror movies is horror..since we have to lower volume many times..and then your banner comes in so losing 1-2 seconds of video... and improve online subtitle download like mx player

    My go to when it comes to a 3rd party media player, but I've had a few issues. Mostly with background playback, in other apps and screen locked, where it would continue to play for a few seconds, and then go silent, opening with no media queued. EDIT OF THE EDIT: Also doesn't seem to happen over Bluetooth all that much, primarily over analog earphones.

    I'm using Nokia 8.1 and before the android 10 upgrade, it was working perfectly. But after the update I'm having problems with the screen casting to my TV. It's cloning the device and the video is playing on both the phone and the TV. I want it to play only on TV like it used to before. Also the stability of the video is messed up because of this. Please fix this.

    Absolutely appalling. When playing via a chromecast, if you try to move forward a few seconds, the app closes. When you pause, then try to play, whatever you're watching, plays on the device, not the tv (and it's audio only, no video). Don't bother installing.

  86. Muhammad Rizky-avatar

    Hmm... This is good app, but i still confuse about hardware acceleration. Please add description about that. 😁

  87. Shravan Kumar-avatar

    Now the app is amazing. Playlist can be created edited and can be internally sorted. This brings great feature...

    Incorrect album picture being shown for mp3 songs by the same artist. Also no way to change SMB password.

    Good media player for local storage, but frequently fails to browse network and load directories or play music, especially if connection is a bit slow. Once it fails, it usually needs be be closed and opened again. Would be happy to provide diagnostic information or help out to fix this, as otherwise it's a great player, and is amazing on desktop.

    VLC for Android just isn't up to the standards of its PC counterpart. No matter what android device Ive used, I always run into some sort of hindrance when playing videos. Sound cutting out and not reappearing until I exit, video cutting out or distorting, etc etc. It finds a way to ruin anything I watch. Unfortunately VLC is the only half decent app to support some of the less common video formats so you're forced to deal with its many shortcomings.

  91. Chris L-avatar

    The updates just make it worse. I used to like sorting by date to easily find my latest added files. Now you can only sort by name. I just don't understand how it got less features after an update. Lots of other small issues with the later versions also. I'm actively looking for a new app as this one doesn't suit all my needs anymore.

  92. Jamie Rowlands-avatar

    I'm really upset that now you cannot disable the video on your mobile device while casting, there used to be an option to toggle phone screen off to save power but has since been removed in an Update, such a shame, been using VLC since it released. Long time user scorned lol! Help

    I love dis media player as my application to play any kind of video or audio file.

  94. Sir Willard-avatar

    I've been using the VLC Windows application for years & it's better than any others I've tried. This was the reason for choosing this app. However, the most recent update shrank the tool bar to less than full screen width and removed the ability to refresh the play list after deleting a played file. 2020-02 Most recent update doesn't keep place in playback when app is reduced to work on another app.

  95. Mustafa Supas-avatar

    i wish i could say this is a perfect app but it isn't. The subtitle download doesn't work anymore. Every time you go out of the app it starts the video from the beginning. And if you're using this app as a host it crashes every 15 minutes. This app just isn't what it used to be.

  96. Abdin Khan-avatar

    Hi, before I updated. I was able to link my phone screen to the TV and watch as well play with my phone at the same time but now, it just links to the TV but my screen is fully seen so if I come off VLC Player to go on Google, that also shows whereas before it just showed the media file that was showing. Can you bring this feature back please?

  97. Paul Y-avatar

    Before the latest update the Player would cast to the TV and the display on phone would turn off while casting (nice Feature) or you could also use you phone it would still cast the content of the player without issue....now however it doesn't, you have to leave your display on all the time if you press the home screen the video turns off, I've tried all the usual settings ie PIP etc but it still doesn't work like it used too, can this be resolved please? Many Thanks

    Great app when you think of playing many different media files. But impossible to bear on your mobile when you think of how much memory it occupies, and how many dozens of times a day it will repeat its media parsing again and again for countless minutes... Improve it, for God's sake. Solve that, please. Update it.

  99. LadyMoon16-avatar

    Been using it for years on my laptop due to hearing impairment and the fact that it can exceed 100% volume both with and without headphones. Got it for my phone awhile back and was very very happy however somethings were taken off that kinda upset me. 1. The music only area no longer exceeds 100% volume, only the video can on phone now... and 2. You cannot view a playlists duration anymore. If those could be implemented again I would be very very grateful.

    After update in end of february, the vlc player is suddenly playing off video file in SMB lan (crashing playing file not application). Before the update it is working nice, but after update it is crashing after 4-5 minutes of playing video. You should do this as early as you can. My mobile is samsung galaxy s9 plus.
