An excellent player but very buggy

Thanks to this wonderful player you can now play .mkv and .avi files (to name a few) straight on the iPad without having to convert them to .mov files. However the interface needs work and every time some bugs get fixed it appears new ones appear. However that would not stop me for recommending it to anyone who wants to watch movies on their iPad with ease.

Don’t update if you stream from your home server over the net. I used to be able to connect via ftp and stream to the phone, it no longer works, you have to download unfortunately. Oddly if log in to my server via an app select Open In VLC then it works as expected

Shame. Hope they fix it.

Looks like we broke something with regard to ftp. We are currently investigating it.

Best player app but network streaming is broken in this update

Hopefully they can fix network streaming soon. Great app.

Developer Response ,

Please email with more details about that's broken for you in network streaming. VLC supports too many different streaming protocols to discuss this here, but we'd be really interested in knowing what's failing for you.
