The best way to control VLC
Incredibly easy to set up. Powerful and Beautiful!
VLC Remote® lets you remotely control your VLC Media Player on your Mac or PC. For iPhone iPad!
Awarded Gizmodo's “Essential iPhone App” three years running. Awarded T3's “Best iPhone Apps”.
The free version is identical to the paid version except for two things:
1) The free version shows adverts.
2) The free version won't let you browse to open files from the remote. You'll have to get up of your sofa and do that manually until you upgrade!
“The new VLC Remote app is simply stunning! It works a treat and it feels professional and powerful. Love it.”
- Adam, London
“The update for the iPhone version is *amazing* - it looks so polished - not that I had any complaints before.”

Ratings and Reviews
Convenient, easy to use
Super convenient, I was able to watch whole movies using my phone as a remote. setup time was less than a minute
Actually works, with a few issues
I’m impressed with how well this app works and how easy it is to get working, but I did find that I had to close the app on my iPad in order to prevent frequent pauses in playback.
Once the video is playing and the app is closed, it works perfectly.
Such an impressive app
I’m so surprised at the capabilities of this app. It’s so helpful and offers control over so many more options than I imagined. I highly recommend it.
