Pros and cons of VLC for Mobile app for iPhone and iPad

VLC for Mobile app good for

I like the play speed settings so that I can play whatever speed I like and very useful to study. It’s convenient to use iTunes to transfer file. However it can be improved: 1. When speed is not 1x, sometimes no sound can be heard and need restart the app. 2. It doesn’t play the file under “All Files” continuously even that feature is turned on, very annoying and have to click next to play.
My iPhone software updated to the 11.2.5 and now my VLC is suddenly saying I need a passcode? I tried typing in my phones passcode but it’s not working and I never set a passcode for the app before so now all my music and videos are locked. Please fix soon
Super duper good, but can you make it to download multiple movies at once and be able to pause the downloads. Also show the download info on the lock screen. Also add Dropbox support
Great app for playing all sorts of file formats. Team has great turnaround on bug reports too.
Best player ever seen in iOS , it can play almost every codecs , suggest you all to get it,
Ive been using VLC as a primary media player for some time - its ability to play practically anything is superb. The only issues Ive had on the playback side of things are occasional graphical glitches or stuttering when playing (streaming) high bitrate videos. VLC could also use proper playlist support (the folder playlist works but its limited). Recently (at least since 2.9.0), Ive had an issue where after connecting to a NAS via smb, it shows up blank rather than full of media (similarly to the result if an incorrect password is used). I am able to connect to this NAS fine with other apps and have triple-checked the password and other connection information. In VLC I can still connect to my desktop computer and play media via smb as usual. I can play media from the NAS via upnp as of 3.0.1, but previously this tended to cause VLC to crash and/or freeze.

Some bad moments

Love the Gesture of fast forwarding and rewinding, but adding multiple files into folder cause it to go reverse order of naming! There’s no way to auto sort I have to manually move them and when you have 10+ files per folder it becomes too much work.
Update VLC player, now it request numeric password that I have never selected, can’t use the app and lost all access to my videos, thanks...
You can browse ftp but you can’t play and download On tv version you can’t even browse ftp server it’s not possible to fw or rew vídeos on tv version on downloaded youtube videos
Total pos on apple fav and iPad. Does not play videos or stutters or stop completely. Also won’t connect with Apple TV, don’t know if it vlc that is the pos or some totally stupid thing Apple has done but don’t waste your time with is pos.
Great app but recent update has killed Touch ID and audio still plays in the background even when that option is turned off. It also freezes quite a bit.
Update now allows secure presentations/video to be viewed from iOS files app even if VLC is locked and turning touchID access off no longer works. TouchID now fixed but still waiting on resolution to unrestricted file access through Files app
