“Can these guys do no wrong? Seriously, if only other app devs knew how to make apps as well as these guys, the world would be a better place. Or at least my device would be less buggy. I was just watching a Full HD copy of Avatar Extended Edition being streamed from my PC on my iPod Touch 2nd Generation and it looked and played amazingly.”
- UK Reviewer

“…it's as good as having the original VLC player on your iOS device…”

“…Setup is a snap and literally takes 2 seconds. You can browse through all your movies from your device and click any one to start playing. It even works if you have the movies stored on a USB drive connected to the host computer.”
-The Times of India

“Took me seconds to setup to stream from a secondary drive in my home office. Going straight out to get a cable for my TV.”
- USA Reviewer

“….This sucker can stream off the pc and plays virtually anything you throw at it. Download it now!”
- TaxiDriver at

Does everything it's supposed to. Only issue I have is wifi connection drops out sometimes and have to exit movie to get it to reload.

VLC for my iPad... GREAT

This app is great. The setup is the trickiest part but extremely simple if you know how to read (takes 5 minutes). I know most people want super quick and super simple but unless you take the time to allow your iPad access to your computer this won't work. Don't complain if you're too lazy to do that. What's great is now I don't bother wasting time trying to convert my video library and add to iTunes because this app will do it on the fly and stream real-time. It also will output in 720p HD which is great if I want to connect it to my HD tv. Just remember it will only be able to handle the real-time conversion and playback according to your computer systems capability. If you don't meet the requirements you'll end up waiting for conversions to happen and it will interrupt your playback experience. The good thing is you can put it on to render and comeback later to watch if that is the case.

Now my computers are free to use and my AppleTV gets a little break more often.

Great work.

Buggy, ripped off

Purchased the full version in the bundle, the next day the app ceased to recognize and pair with my PC. After trying to pair extensively, I deleted the app to try and reinstall, however it is asking me to pay again! Don’t buy!
