Versatile As Can Be

VLC Player won’t take much space on your iPhone or iPad. Yet it will save lots of time you would otherwise spend on recoding your videos into formats iTunes can accept. VLC just takes them and plays them as soon as they’re put in its folder.

While playing, you can switch the audio tracks or subtitles on the fly (if there are multiple). Pause takes a second or two of silence, and then video and sounds get resynced. If you like watching videos in foreign languages, VLC is hard to overrate as a great player.

More than Local Videos

Along with videos from your iDevice, VLC can connect to remote sources over the Internet or local network. It can be your NAS, your Mac or PC with a SMB or DLNA server running. If the server requires login and password, VLC can remember them if you tick a box, but won’t log in automatically.

If you connect your cloud accounts, like Dropbox, OneDrive, iCloud or Google Drive, it can get media from there too and play it as easily as local files, if your bandwidth allows for that.

It’s a good audio player as well. If you don’t want your music bound to iTunes or iCloud, you can opt for VLC as your default music tool.

The greatest thing is that this VLC for Mobile Review would have been mostly the same if we were to write it for Apple TV. If you run it on iPhone, you can broadcast it to your Apple TV and control with your Apple Watch, using the ecosystem.  This smooth seamless experience is amplified if you have a home server with video and audio library.

Do You Need VLC?
