Ongoing external display issues

VLC does pretty much everything I need it to, however I recently discovered that there is an issue displaying MKV video output over an HDMI adapter to an external display. Oddly it is not an issue with MOV or MP4 files. A quick Google revealed others having a similar issue back in September, which was apparently remedied in release 3.2.1. Unfortunately it appears to remain an issue in the current version, at least for me (iPhone 8 plus, iOS 13.3), and I’ve no intention of registering for an account just to report a bug. There are a number of alternative media players for iOS that do not suffer from this issue, so I’ll have to use those in the meantime. Hopefully I can revert to VLC soon, as I appreciate its ease of use and un-fussy interface over the competition.

Excellent Functions and FREE

I don’t know why some reviewers have complained.
I have downloaded this app today and so far have found it to be faultless with good functionality. Some complain about not having folders, you don’t need folders. For example I use it for karaoke videos from different decades, so in-front of each song title I will put 1980’s or 1990’s etc. The song is then automatically placed into the ‘video groups’ folders and they all go into the correct and relevant folders. The other great feature is you can set up playlists and delete them without any concern of deleting videos as they only delete from the playlists. You can search for videos which is another great feature. Personally I think this is an excellent app as not only does it have a video library but also an audio library. I looked at other media player apps, been using one for a while that had faults numerous times and crashed whereas this one whilst loading videos did not crash. I am hoping it continues to be excellent.

Highly recommend! Hugely underrated!

I’ve been using this app for a while now. And to be honest it’s my most used app on my phone. Even above Instagram and that’s saying something. I used to have an iPod with thousands of songs. However now I use the drag and drop feature from my computer desktop to my phone using this app. It’s painless simple and I couldn’t ask for a better app. It’s video playback is excellent for those home videos too. It’s just like the pc version of VLC player and it’s very intuitive to use.

I don’t often write reviews and I wasn’t even asked to write this review, but I just had to today because the update is excellent and this app doesn’t get enough appreciation. I love this app because it helps me take thousands of songs on my phone just by dragging them onto the browser. It’s very easy to create playlist too. Which is probably the main feature I’m most thankful for. Over all it’s a must have app, and I would highly recommend using it for music on your phone.
