“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

There are a huge number of movie formats, and VLC can convert most of them - but it can't convert everything. If you have any doubts, then please try the free version of this application first.

Download The Genuine VLC Player...

... instead of this second-rate knockoff. The 'developers' have even used the icon for the genuine software. This app is near to being a scam, and so it deserves a rating of 0 stars.

I downloaded this app purely to point out that the genuine VLC Player does everything that the paid-for version of this copy can do, and much better. Furthermore, VLC Player is free-of-charge, being supported by Voluntary Donations.

Don't waste your time with this app; pick the real deal instead.

Continuous play

This paid for version should have a play all option as it’s really annoying having to keep selecting each video in the streaming list when if there was a play all or tag option guys. Ad free yes but nothing else’s?

I find it highly questionable that you have to agree to NOT requesting a refund if you use or download this app within 14 days.
How the heck do you know how ineffective it is until you have used it?

Being a great fan of the VLC player on my Windows PC, I had high hopes for this. However, it is next to useless. Buffering is a massive problem - even though my internet speed doesn't cause this with anything else.

Also, if you pause a movie to go back to it, it rarely plays.

I am extremely disappointed and not happy that I cannot now request a refund.
