Greate app with bugs

Dear developers,
I have to say that I like VLC. It’s very nice app - I’d like to say the best - for playing videos in iOS. It works like charm in the Linux/Unix/Windows based computers. Anyway, there are some bugs in the iOS version.

All versions I’ve seen had difficulty to connect to Samba share provided by Time Machine. Problem appeared when a hard drive in a Time Machine was powered off (it happens automatically as a power saving feature) and connection to the Samba needed a few seconds before initial directory structures can be retrieved from it. VLC frozen in such case, files/directory were never shown and I had to connect in VLC again a few seconds later. The connection was successful when the share responded immediately (hard drive was online). Always.

In current version, Samba share doesn’t work at all. Which made me very sad.

Hope somebody will fix above (and a few other) bugs and make this the best five-star video player. Keeping fingers crossed.

Latest update

Is full of bugs. When returning from other app, it freezes or doesn’t play a sound in a video. Gestures for volume and brightness dońt work. When watching a video without touching a screen, the screen locks after the time out set in system, very annoying. Very bad update makes this player useless
