    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.

    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. 😤

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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! :(

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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. guest-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. guest-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.
