Awesome app! New update missing functionality

I love this app! So far mostly enjoying the new update, but I used to be able to shuffle file playback and/or repeat single or all within a given folder on SMB. Now I can’t find that. Any chance of bringing that back?

OneDrive Audio Files Limited To 2452

I was really hoping that with this latest update I could change my ⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating to ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ but out of frustration I have dropped it down to ⭐️⭐️For at least a couple of years it limited OneDrive audio files to 200, then with the update prior to this one, the limit changed to 2450 - this latest update now limits it to 2452.The app only displays embedded album art in audio files in file list mode. When an audio file is selected to stream, the album art disappears in full screen mode, and when minimised to the mini player mode. I assume fixing this issue should not be too complicated.Displaying the OneDrive audio file directly is aggravatingly slow, as well as in the time it takes to actually start streaming a selection - especially when compared to the nPlayer app. Perhaps if the VLC Player could create and keep a local cache file of the logged in cloud services listing all of the files in the selected directory . . . that one could be manually refreshed, similarly to how the CloudBeats app does . . . this might make VLC Player app feel more responsive.I am really fond of this app, and especially appreciate all the work that everyone has put into it. With continued feedback and support it will become as reliable and mature as its Windows version.

Overheating with the upgrade

Never had overheating problems before. After the latest upgrade 13 pro gets crazy hot. Playing the same files. Please fix, this is very bad for battery health

I have no idea how to open the now playing viewer now.

This sounds stupid, I know. It opened automatically the first time I played a song, but half a second after it closed the now playing viewer and now always starts songs in the small bar at the bottom (like a quick controls you know? With the skip songs and pause and play?) and nothing I do opens the now playing menu. iPad if Apple doesn’t show you. I can’t use repeat, or song speed, or anything but skip and play/pause without the now playing menu. I have tried all sorts of gestures near the small bar. All swiping down does is close it and left and right skips songs. I cannot open that now playing menu! Help, please. I love your app but I just can’t open this menu now.

Buggy mess, not user friendly

Listen, I just want to use this to play audio files. Adding songs to the app is really easy (you can just put it in the VLC folder), and I give this app props for that, but unfortunately, the app doesn’t function once it’s actually running.For some reason, it is incapable of playing audio files correctly. Audio is always incredibly sharp, typically around a half step above where it should actually be, though sometimes even more. For those who don’t know what that means, essentially the app is playing higher sounds than it’s supposed to and it’s really annoying. Other than that, certain audio files will make really loud snapping noises occasionally while playing. Again, this is unacceptable for a music player. Lastly, I’ve had a lot of difficulties with the UI. Controlling volume and brightness by sliding on the right and left sides of the screen makes it REALLY easy to accidentally adjust the volume or change the brightness. This means you could be listening to something and accidentally set the volume to max, killing your eardrums. It’s really upsetting how unusable this app is. If these issues get fixed, I will promptly adjust my review, as this app has tons of potential.

Such a weird major update

I love VLC. I’ve used it on every computer I’ve owned for the past…10 years? I’ve sure there have been updates to the program, but it’s a great system and whatever updates there were, didn’t change the interface too much. So… what happened here? The new interface on the iPhone (and ipad) seems to be a total downgrade, with a lot of features I would often use hidden behind new menus. Okay, whatever, I can get used to that. Then the subtitle download button seems more difficult to access on the iPad, which is bizarre. Still, not gamebreaking. Two super annoying problems, which is why I’m rating this app so low after loving it so long- 1) now the app creates a dummy “put your media files here” in the folder, which you cannot delete- or rather, you can delete it, but the app will restore it on startup. I do not need to be reminded where my files go. Please stop reminding me, I’m not 80 years old. Secondly, the video filters, playback speed and sleep timer options on the iPhone just… don’t work? At all? I’ve tried restarting the app, restarting my phone, downloading the app again, no dice. I don’t often review app, but when I do, it’s because the developers released a worse version of a good app without proper testing. One last thing- I would’ve just submitted a bug report but there’s no option for that? Fair enough, here’s a negative review instead…

Perfect but swipe up & down for volume

For Volume increase and decrease, swipe up and down need to be flexible and must be easy control swipe up but sometime swipe up volume is completely mute… Should be infuse app for volume swipe up and down… thank u

very disappointed

i am a loyal and more than a decade long VLC user on PC, Mac, Linux and for several years, on iOS. The new update has taken out the loop song feature. I just cannot find it. VLC player always worked perfect for me. I’m angry at myself for needlessly updating the app when the older version worked perfectly fine.

I’ve been using this app for years, but the new update and UI kind of broke it for me

This app has been my go to video player for years, but the new update introduced variable jump duration. I get the purpose of variable jump duration, but for shorter videos that are half an hour skipping ahead 90 ish seconds will cause me to miss too much of what I’m watching. I liked the previous skipping gesture that only skipped 30 seconds forward and then you could skip 10 seconds backward if you missed anything. If I don’t have the variable jump duration skipping forward at 10 second intervals seems unbearably long. Perhaps in a future revision provide a drop down box that allows us to choose between jumping forward 10s, 30s, 60s, and variable jump duration as the last option to provide more flexibility to users. Other than that the revision looks very nice. Hopefully y’all can add these features in the next update.

Great app, works perfectly fine 98% of the time

I’ve been using this for the past few months and it works great. It plays my music fine, and importing music was a breeze. It can also be used as a pseudo file transfer app, letting me export files to other devices. However, I have some problems. One, I notice that my music skips somewhat when turning on my phone. Music scrubbing outside of the app (on the lock screen) is very inaccurate, and will sometimes jump to another part of the song. After skipping, the pitch is slightly off; it’s slightly higher. I know it’s a very niche nitpick, but since I’ve noticed it I can’t un-hear it.
