FREAKIN SWEET Finally the app I've long been waiting for!!! I use my laptop & VLC player through my tv since I don't cable. But not having a remote was the biggest draw back UNTIL NOW!!!! FANSTIC APP. Very user friendly. Can't say enough great things about it. LOVE IT THANKS EVER SO MUCH

Chris Martin

For a free app, it is awesome! Lately, I've been downloading movies to my Surface Pro 3 and watch them on my tv thru hdmi out. At first, it was somewhat aggravating getting up and down, tweaking settings or when you want to pause or back up, but with this app I can now just kick back because not only can you browse and launch movies stored on your computer directly from your phone, you can also manipulate any and all necessary settings directly from the app like subtitles, audio sync, volume, and anything else you can think of!

Arun Khandelwal

Amazing app This is what everyone needs. It is very easy to configure. I believe it is the best App..but it would be great if you give access free when screen is lock or from notification..

Aakash Sharma

Awesome.. Awesome app...very helpful...easy to it... Can u add a feature to listen to vlc's audio from headphone jack of android... It will be mind blowing

Mike Mclellan

Holy shish kebab Now I can be high and not have to move whilst watching family guy... Vlc remote rocks... And it's free highly recommend dude

Edu Pimentel

Good Good functionality and usability. Really like it. Sometimes the app gets stuck on the notification panel even though VLC is off. You have to go into the app and close it.


No control for other Android devices? I want to control VLC on another android device, because new Android devices play videos easier than having a full computer hooked up to my TV. I can do this in Kodi using their remote, but want the same for VLC. I use an HDMI dongle from my phone to my TV and want to control the phone from my tablet. Thanks

Irwin Tsu

Possible to add subtitles to lockscreen controls? Sometimes when I'm watching a movie and a quick foreign language pops up, I'd like to be able to skip back, turn the subs on then off afterwards. Would be nice

Peter Pan

Excellent But you need to incorporate the 'broken or missing AVI index' options when they occur. I cant be lazy without it! :D

Jackson Nguyen

Connecting issue My desktop is wireless connection for some reason it can't find my desktop please help

Ankit Khurana

One great app for lazy people!! Its easy to setup and works without lags !!

Raja Patel

Fantastic Awesome app... Lets me have a movie night with my friends in ease..... Simply fantastic

Kally ragz

Super I always use vlc as video's player bt this remote app is awesome

Nathan Roush

Good app I love the controls of it. I bought the full version and the only thing i say should he added is being able to not just turn off vlc but turn it on as well. Thats the only thing holding that fifth star back.

Keith Giannelli

Excellent Works great, no lag or dropped connections. Love it.

Jeyaseelan prabhu

Nice Remote for VLC Nice remote for VLC and works flawlessly. Having an option start VLC application in PC is a nice to have feature


Vlc remote Awesome remote program.. Just wish it could open the vlc program as well. That would be the height of laziness.

Michael Arrington

No complaint from me.. Does what I want it to do... control vlc player...

Norman Manoh

Best VLC remote Works like a charm! Awesome features! Recommend for everyone watching movies from their bed/sofa and dont want to go reach the keyboard/mouse

Ryan Hunnicutt

Best remote app I've used so far The ads are obnoxious and flashy, but that's very easily fixed with three bucks. That's the only complaint I have and that's Google's fault. Good show, sir.

Bryan Sta Maria

Great app Does everything you could ask for.

pankaj rawat

Use remotly Great app to remote control vlc.

Jack Jones

Great Yesss! I can now browse drives other than primary thanks to latest PC VLC and great customer service from Adarsh. Great job

Daniel Mehta

Amazing and simple! ! Loved the guidance and the app a keeper for sure!! Hope I discovered it before!!

Alexander Hyde

Make life easy Had a few problems getting it going but works fine now

Johan Duffield

Nice app Would be nice if i could set an default folder where the app always open to when adding a file to play

Roopam Shukla

Just awesome! Hats off to the developer. App works excellently.

Lukasz Zgagacz

At least! I was waiting for it far too long.

Greg Chesavage

works on wifi only unified remote works with wifi amd wired internet so just ise that instead

Ignacio Siri

It's really cool but needs some improves on its UI. Keep up the good work!

Alex Jepson

Does exactly what you want. Easily.

Ryan Miller

Finally its easy to connect Great descriptive controls and setup. Nice intuitive graphical user interface layout.

stan dragos

Great app It works fine with vlc on linux, it has all the controls you would expect

Cam M

Handy app Worth the money, not worth it to use the free version.

Morris Putrayasa

The best Full control, easy setup and use, nice UI. Really worth the price.

Kjartan Adolfsson

Good Work like it should. Nice to control the VLC player from the phone

Nick Convery

Better than expected Was pleasantly surprised with this app :) Highly recommend.

Jackson Nguyen

Fix the issue Its great!!! (Had to make my wireless connection on my computer into a repeater/transmitter and use my device to connect to my computer connection.)

Vivek Kataria

Lazy man's dream come true Awesome app. My first review. So good I felt compelled to rate it.

Marius Rye

Simply awesome Was getting tired of the constant stutter and overheating on my Chromecast and got a 7m HDMI cable instead. And paired with this remote it's amplified my movie enjoyment by a factor of 100. Awesome apo. Bought and paid for.

Nathan Norman

Crashes desktop player When trying to get to files on another drive, trying to go above C:\ in the apps file manager causes the desktop app to crash. Are files in other drives even supported? As I saw no explicit mention, I figured it was a given.

Jóel Enok Kristinsson

It does the job I tried it, liked it, spent 3$ on the added luxury and lived happily ever after.

Patrick Gra

Useful PC + TV as monitor.

Alberto Hernandez

Love it Pausing, turning up the volume, and playing a different movie while sitting in the couch? I'm in.

Maxim C.

It's fine. But is not worse at all, while free version have NO limited functionality (oh, and apparently supports MPC in addition) And I really don't like that when you exit the app through back button notification stays until you go to App Info and Force stop the app.


Great! Nice program, easy setup, profiles.

Vasya Volkov

Auto detect VLC not working I need to manually add my computer hostname each time I change network or dhcp gives me different address. It's really annoying. Please fix it. Yes, I know about static IP, but in dynamic networks (WIFI networks actually) it is very unpleasant to change every time static IP to dynamic dhcp and turn back... Promise you :) Really.

Aleksey Kashintsev

Yeah! Oh motherfucker it's awethsome!

Ryer Danton

Great Very helpful

Holly M.

This is a great app, it works pretty well from what I've seen! However, I was disappointed to find that, when I purchased it, the lock screen widget seems to have to be added manually and left on all the time. Some other player apps (VLC for android, Shuffle music player, etc) will have a lock screen widget that replaces the default (in my case the clock widget) when the app is open and I'd love to have that here since it'd be less hassle.

LA Juifa

Am damn lazy now If you really don't feel like popin up an about to organise playlist pause or play ur player.., then this is for u.

Kaytlyn Hand

Sometimes, despite having a strong connection and VLC being open, I keep getting the error message, "could not find VLC". Sometimes, even in the middle of a video.

Mikey Gormley

Finally an easy to use VLC remote app. Tried others and they were either too complicated or just didn't work. The setup wizard is a godsend it's so user friendly. Not too sure what I got extra for my 2.99 except for no ads but still worth five stars.

luwai abizar

The feedback from the developer helped. Have been enjoying this app recently

Harris Family

It Works!! Perfect remote for vlc. Had a few teething troubles caused by vlc 2.2.0 but now updated to 2.2.1 and everything works perfectly. I can access all media on all my drives, play/add to playlist, play/pause/fast forward/rewind/skip/volume. I can even change audio tracks enable/disable subs and fix syncing issues. Absolutely perfect. If it continues to work flawlessly then will pay for full version. EDIT It re-runs itself in the background even when force closed and removed from running apps. I do not like this.

Ben Repton

The best one I've used. If you use VLC and would like a remote then this does the job better than any other app I've used and so far I've used a lot of them. It connects easily and hassle free, gives complete control and for a voluntary fee has loads of cool features.

A Hayes

Wonderful Love. Use it in the livingroom and in bed. Easy to install. Well made app with minimal ad intrusion. Thanks.

Timothy Sia Kee Hieng

Awesome for lazy ass! It's simple as follow on-screen instructions and you're up and running. Browsing for files and all the necessary controls available. Awesome!

Alkis Algianakis

Very good application Generally works very well and does what it claims to do. Would have loved a search function in library. I have purchased the Pro version.

Aaron Rider

Well, it works. But the Wi-Fi I'm using our over is the phone's own hotspot, which the remote doesn't seem to expect, and I get disconnected all the time.

Hafiz Akmal Amer Hamzah

Ok makes navigation easier. but the icons doesn't have labels make it quite difficult to use it at first.

Charlie Skinner

Decent product, shifty delivery Seems good, but shady delivery practices. Shame, because otherwise it's good stuff. Deleting now, but will probably circle back later to see if they've wised up

Kostas Andrianos

There is a problem I don't have a sofa in my room! I think a bed will do, right? :-P

rembert v

Volume control I loved the free app , so purchased the premium for rs.180 for control from lock screen . But volume control is missing in lock screen..

James MacKinnon

Great app! Allows me to not get off the couch...the new American dream! I do wish the app would pull media info from a database for cleaner titles & show/movie info (like Plex, for example). Overall A+ on functioning as it says it will.

Adam Oellermann

Incredibly handy I use this all the time now to control VLC during church services and bible studies. Much slicker that shuffling up and down... Frees me from the laptop, simple and reliable.

Jon Procter

Very good Works very well, great UI :) Thank you!

prasad sonawane

Beautiful Works like charm.. Addicted to it, have our on all my devices. One more star, if developer can add a dark theme to it to watch movies at night without getting disturbed by bright light

Eliezer Rodriguez

Freaking awesome Now I don't need to go to my laptop to skip to the next video.

Israr khan

Best remote app I'm buying premium. Totally worth it

Bianca Moldovan

The best VLC remote I've tried! While other remotes need extra applications to connect or just simply don't work, I managed to connect the app with vlc on the first try. It also works with two remotes at the same time! The free version offers more features than any other remote I've tried, but the extra features are really worth buying it.

Thomas Jordaan

Simple Does all the basic things you'd want it to do

Mark Aimino

best laziness encouragement app it works well once you set it up. but for some reason, my |&lt;&lt; and &gt;&gt;| buttons are greyed out and I can't fix it.

zamir afsal

Add dark mode or skins and this app will be worth 5 stars Well equipped remote vlc interface.. Just needs a dark color UI option or ability to add custom skins/themes. White UI looks lame.

Jacob Amphonrojnanan

Stretched icons when purchased Recently purchased but long time free user, always thought the app worked great, after purchasing the icons look stretched because the ad is gone. On another note I thought I remembered the upgrade being cheaper before $1.99, not $2.99. Other than that nicest UI and features. Update did not change anything.

Allan Buchan

Does what it says on the tin Great app. Works. if only id monitored the little one playing on my phone blowing my entire Google balance on hayday diamonds id have upgraded. Payday looming will upgrade. Thanks for great app!!!

Love Chocolate

Very good Lacking Bluetooth connectivity though is a big flaw in this app, if you add that then the app it will be 5 star worthy.

Dimitris Karagiannis

Almost perfect It's the best vlc remote on the play store and it will be perfect for everything you sick. Suggestion: You could add other file types to the default list like m3u or m3u8 which are supported by vlc but not visible by default. These two are playlist file types and I use them regularly. I can bypass the problem with a settings option but then I see other windows folders like "$Recyc..." or "desktop.ini". If you make this simple change I'll give you the final star ;)

Timothy Sia Kee Hieng

Awesome for lazy ass! Still! It's simple as follow on-screen instructions and you're up and running. Browsing for files and all the necessary controls available. Awesome!

Craig Martin

VLC remote works great! However there is an issue where the audio plays in the background on the phone when using the YouTube feature. Not sure how to stop this...

Joseph LeBlanc

Help, Love VLC but the UI will not update? It let's me control it and all but it doesn't change visually? Playlist also doesn't show? Even when I have it in vlc on my Pc

Wian van Zyl

Refreshing You provide many necessary features in the free version; which I have not seen from many app developers. Thank you

Tristan Turner

Incredible I am as lazy as I could physically be now. This is literally the greatest app every created. It just works, exactly as you would expect. I bought the paid version immediately, and you should too. I wish I could give them more money. Seriously, just get it.

Iain Mungall

Works well with Ubuntu. Had to do a manual connect. But it's working great!

Rocksolid Fells

easy to use now i dont have to be stuck right near the pc to watch shows.

Gerry Callaghan

NEXUS 7 (2013) & Moto X (2013) Fantastic Works very well

Roman Voronkov

Wonderful This app is amazing and is easy to set up! Just open VLC, and sit down on your couch.

Tanmay Jaswal

It removes such a big pain The best Rs.50 I ever spent :) It flawlessly controls the VLC player on my computer.

Clive Misquith

Too many 'premium-ised' features What's the point if so many cool features are paid. I may as well just walk to my pc and click the mouse!

Eric Medina

Works well, nice interface and a active dev If only I had a smart watch so I could be even lazier...

Crysta T. Lacey

It is hard on the battery even when notify is very limited. Push it into the background to minimise this. Otherwise it does what I want even if all the buttons don't respond.

Russell Mahoney

Subtitles Cannot upload subtitles from the remote other than that its amazin.

Greg Dopirak

Great Job! I couldn't ask for anything more. Developers constantly update and everything works perfectly. Thanks.

Raj Aryan

awesome app Best for lazy mode...

Upendra Siripurapu

Cool app Very helpful to play YouTube videos on laptop over wifi

Eliasv!l3 L.

Best UI of any VLC Remote App!

Neil Sklar

Fantastic Can't think of anything I wish it did differently, and setup was easy.

Clemens Hofreither

Great remote for VLC, no extra software to install, works reliably. Feature request: let me choose subtitle files.

Renshaw D'Souza

Does the job . Would have preferred more options .

Griff Brock

I cant buy premium i click buy and nothing happened..

Ankur Vanshal

Mind Blowing The app which takes care of all the controls like a child's play, and that too with amazing accuracy. Try it to believe it. Be careful! This is highly addictive app.

Abhishek Agarwal

Awesome It's so good. It detects automatically, so basically you don't need to setup it again while you have dynamic IP. Thanks!

Maciek Weksej

Simply works. What more do we need?

Roshan A P

Just what I needed :D This app works perfectly :D.. But I notice that once I play ANY video on the connected computer.. The phone detects it even b4 I turn on the app. Does this mean the app keeps running in the background and draining battery?


Not giving the sound in blue ray typ video

Ray Moya

Awesome Love to see an equalizer sound controls option.

Erica Olson

Works well, like vlc Works well, every time. Love that I can look at my files for next video to watch. Free version is great.

Gajendra Ambi

tried gom player but nothing like this vlc remote


LG G4 Very good, works really well.

Lee Smith

Works great, so easy even the terminally stupid could set it up

Daniel Salazar

Got the premium version with YouTube support through VLC, it's a thing of beauty!

Matt Otto

Worked for a while This app was absolutely amazing but as soon as i upgraded to the pro version i started having issues. The app now refuses to connect to my pc no matter what i try. What a way to reward pro users!

Ben L.

Connection Issues Followed all the steps made sure wireless isolation was disabled, checked my ipv4 address, and put 45min of time trying to get it to connect

Colin Carlisle

The ability to play videos that are still in rar/zips without extracting (like vlc can for most video files) directly from the app would be fantastic.

Ran Over

It's easy, simple instructions on how to setup built right into the app. It was setup up before I knew it.

Benj D.B.S.

Very easy to use Auto connects to video when phone is nearby

Lubri Cator

VLC for dummies Setup is foolproof. Excellent guide. Works great.

Hamilton Jimenez Vasquez

Very useful Very customisable, it work flawlessly

Sean Smith

Love it!!! I wish i had found it sooner &lt;3

Thomas Jones

Won't connect ever no matter what. Followed directions to the letter. Waste of time.

Andy Noseworthy

Works really well, does ALMOST everything I could ask for.... The one thing that seems to be missing is the ability to move songs up and down in a playlist... Do that and I'll rate it 5 stars! Thanks

Kimberley Orr

Easy to set up easy to use! My only wish for the app is that it would let me pull media off the external server connected to my computer.

Gavin Morgan

Vlc remote, does what it fckin says I love vlc player, have used it for years. It's amazing, powerful and even a toddler can use it, this remote is a great accessory to it. It is quite useful, especially if you like to relax and watch Things on your computer without having to get up every time you wanna change the slightest thing. My only gripe at the moment is when you open a new show these guys have begun putting up a full page ad that you have to exit out of before your file plays. While this is annoying to be sure I didn't detract stars

George JC Klinger

Great app but Allow us to play youtube on basic app. Other versions will let you. Then I'll give you the 5 ✨

Aaron Berg

The best vlc remote I've tried every VLC remote app on the play store; this one's the best. Perfectly usable free version & the paid version is absolutely worth it since it removes the banner ads & unlocks some great functionality.

Regina Marie

Simple yet accurate instructions on how to connect to your laptop. It does what it's supposed to do. Not only does it let you connect to VLC, it also allows you to connect to your computer files and choose videos to play right at your fingertips. Very lazy-friendly. ?

Bez Berry

Getting better Updates and losing the connection is no longer a thing. I have an Xperia Z3, and I like the dark themes. Much less intrusive on the eyes, for those times you need to have it open, while watching something. Because we do turn the lights down when we stick a film or show on

Elon Gates

Excellent (HTC601zara & Moto X Play) Best VLC remote I have used. Dev actively supports the app. Easy to use. Very stable app.

Darrell Hughes

So many VLC apps This was the first I tried, so I figured I'd better try others. This one seemed complicated, but I got the hang of it pretty quick. When I tried another one, I realized this one has everything you need right where you need it, so I deleted the other one and stayed with this one. Android mirroring, like some of the others have, would be a great addition!

Peter Pan

Excellent But you need to incorporate the 'broken or missing AVI index' options when they occur. I cant be lazy without it! :D

Chad Collins

Great app. The premium is a little over priced for the little extra functionality that you get. Otherwise, 5 stars if it was cheaper.

Fabricio Mercado

So good, I don't watch movies any other way.

xnote3 Dv

Amazing!! Laziness to nth power!!! Good work guys! More power!!

Georgios Zouvelekis

Search subtitles It would be nice if you make the app to search for subtitles like vlc does

Guy DJ HypnotixX

The Most Awesome VLC remote ever This ap is fantastic with my Ubuntu Linux box straight into the back of the hdmi on my LG plazma. No more jumping up to go around the corner to fix subtitles, pause, fix ratio, volume or any of that. Can I give you money to take the adds away? They are not really intrusive anyway. ? it!

Aakash Patel

Everything I could ask for Perhaps streaming would be nice ?. YouTube control is kinda buggy. Sometimes when changing videos, it pauses VLC and starts playing the YouTube audio through the remote app!

Noel Milton Vega

So far excellent! But keep improving and fixing. =:)

Brian Williams

Works perfect Set up was extremely easy. On a urge I installed and ran the wizard and in less than 2 minutes I had my desktop running Windows 10 with vlc accessing all my media drives from my LG V10. Brillant app!!!

John Thimakis

Awesome Get the paid version and you can watch YouTube videos in VLC player. The only bug I found was if you pause the YT video for a while, when unpausing, it restarts it from the beginning after a few seconds.

Magne Pedersen

Nice Great app, please add control through mobile hotspot if one doesn't have a router

Dimitris Karagiannis

Perfect It's already the best vlc remote on the play store and it keeps adding new features constantly!!!

Hitesh Chavda

Pro version is worth every penny. Kudos to the Developer

David ONeill

Advancing my laziness Just need a way to wake up the screen.

hoby goacher

Ads are really over the top now making the remote really pointless being free

Barbara Kenobi

A-MA-ZING much better than what I was expecting I actually never write reviews. But I just needed to let you know that this app has made my night! As a series an movie fan this is great. You can even choose from the app what you wanna watch. Too good to be real. I hope someone reads this and don't think about twice to download. This would change your life hahahahah

Mitch Sulte

Fixed the port and got it working perfectly <3 devs respond quickly to anything you need <3 5 star.

Morné Haynes

Really great App, clear instructions and so far so good!

Timothy O'Barr

Great It's very well laid out and control's perfectly

hXz 0r3

Add controls to configure vlc. Download subtitles mainly.

Adrián Medina

Good! very useful, makes it worth for me to save some dough and purchase a Google Play card and purchase full version.

Dhananjay Sharma

Absolutely awesome app .. I don't have to move from where i am .. Can play videos and songs from anywhere in the house .. Great app ..

Ajs Mind

Wow I'm more lazy now. Thank you great app!

Apostolos Chatzopoulos

Almost Excelent Firts of all the app... i cant remeber what it doesn't do. But there is a little bug on youtube that some songs can't be streamed. I know this has to do with youtube API but if you fix it you da best!

Joe Bell

Great app Use it all the time

mark craig

Does what I need it to do quite well

Martin P

Awesome! This is the best vlc app by far. Works great. Thanks guys!

Daniel L

Fantastic Just perfect

Mohammad A Hussain

Abid It's good

Mike Greenwood

Worth premium At £2 it's a steal, the app is so easy to use with no fuss or limitations and does exactly what it says on the tin. Opted for premium so I can control vlc volume as it's more precise than the TV

Davide Pusceddu

Room for improvement bur the best you can find The app it's not great but it's the best I could find. The volume control is a little inaccurate and does not extend to the full reach of you device volume. You can alway get some more juice from the vlc on the PC.

P Eleven

Just what I've been wanting. I've wanted an app like this for too long but never looked one up. It's working flawlessly so far. Only one complaint would be that some of the buttons are stretched a bit weird, but maybe it was made that way.

Stephan Kuchling

Love the app, but either theere is one function missing or I am too stupid to find it: changing a video file's audio track. I have the button to cycle through the different subtitles, but no equivalent for audio tracks (german, english, japanese, etc...) Please add this function or tell me how to find it :)

Erik Stensland

Great app from a dedicated developer I had an issue with the app, emailed the help address and was contacted almost immediately thereafter. The dev walked me through my issue with the app and showed both patience and excellent communication / sociability. I'd buy the app a second time if I had another device.

Charbel G. Hajj Doumet

Leave that mouse and use it It's a full remote control for you're VLC desktop. Needs to be more friendly. Once you know how to use it, you will never use the mouse again fire VLC

Paulius Zakarauskas

Good but could be better No sound controls with sound buttons on phone. Volume drops down from 200% to 100% when u open the app. Just annoying and expensive piece of crap

Jeff Denny

Impressed Totally plan on buying the full version. And I don't spend money on apps at all. It does force close when I play a song in my computer. But it starts right back up.

Jezreel Tan

Its all I need Perfect tool for Sign Language Meetings in operating videos in ASL/FSL. Looking for upgrades that will stream file thumbnails to this remote.

David Sharp

It is great! I use it everyday. I like the themes and its really easy to use. Its totally worth paying for. I don't regret it at all. If you use vlc as much as i do at home being able to just sit back and use my phone to select anything from my library is really nice. I never sit at my desk anymore

Harry Thrower

Great for Bed Ever wanted to control your SpongeBob binge-watching from bed? Ever wanted to throw things from your desktop folders into a playlist from your phone without having to touch your computer on the other side of the room? Look no further.

Karin Byron

Great, had no idea this existed. Where has this been for the past 10 years I've been torrenting? Glad I found it!

Pascal Pichard

Does everything it should and more You can skip videos, change volume, pause, even choose subtitles and much more. You can't use the lock screen and notification bar controls in the free version but the premium version is definitely worth it in my opinion.


Love it. I love VLC and this app is pretty great. Can't believe I never heard of it before now. I have my computer linked to my TV via an HDMI cable and this app makes watching my saved shows/movies effortless.

Keyur Desai

Perfect 5 stars Just perfect.. I loved the app.. Everything is working awesome

Rudiger Roach

Very useful This is a wonderful app that has very clear focus with a nice and uncluttered interface.

Mitch K

Good So far so good. Works perfect with my Comouter no issues connecting or anything after following the steps. Does use quite some battery tho.. Other then that it works great

Shaun Fowler

Awesome. No more pressing space on laptop to pause... Its like a normal movie. Phew.

Rhythm Rice

Cant buy premium? It looks amazing but i just cannot find where i can buy premium. I went through every setting and clicked every option? I will give you my money just show me where i can

Apostolos Chatzopoulos

Almost Excelent Adding search was a big benefit! Now fix youtube streaming!


Excellent Thought I would try this App. I'm so impressed. Easy to setup. Going to buy full version for the YouTube funtion. Great.

Vick Vicks

MUST GET NOW! perfectly fine with the new features, it literally plays every thing! not one time has it let me or my computer down!!!!!!!!

Jason Ricardo

One of my most used apps Saves time and effort. Helps to continually watch anything without having to touch the computer. Features in the paid version are well worth the money.

Jose Taboada

jose the best remote control app i've ever imagine.. thank you guys..

Blebeg Bong

Runs beautiful, but... I wish I can list my files by date or type as well as names.

Chris S.

It's good. One minor but crucial issue for 5 stars Folders starting with a # character cannot be accessed. You get sent back to the same directory you were. Please fix this to score a 5!

Nils Bünger

Barely usable without premium. No trail period of any kind.

Muhammad Usuf

cool its cool, but every time i open i cant play movie where i left it before i need to fwd it add this option or if it already have help me about it.

Vojtěch Sajdl

Love it Great for lazy people like me...

Revv Faleatagaloa

Great app LOVE THIS!!! If there was way that you could re-route the audio to my phone (like localcast does) I would definitely purchase this app. But definitely deserves 5☆

George Suprith

Works perfect Using it from last 8 months works it large...

Prince Macdonald Ehi-Okosodo

Still installing, I'll come back to you later.

crashes vlc on windows7 crashes every time i try to connect via this remote vlc app. i already use the newest vlc version available

Ray Cole

Could be better, app keeps gettung off sync n wont start up properly

Tony Sampedro

Love it. Simple, yet could be easier ui. Does what I need and more. Quality app!

Alex G.

Buy it, won't regret it. Nice app, but can you add a search function? I guess I can't see the code to make it myself so...

Trey Bennett

Great UI I love the UI. Great layout and it shows all the relevant information about the video or music track.

Heath Mayocchi

The basics work, but the app is too heavily burdened with ads to use the free version. Every time you open a media file it brings up an ad, some with a timer before you can close it. I was considering purchasing but have decided not to because of the adware included. There are plenty of remote apps on the market, no need to put up with adware.

Designed to Desire laziness Awesome easy remote control, enjoy your video or songs or YouTube surfing on your large screen at fingertips

Rayan Mwila

Yeah! It's cool and very reliable too.

Duško Simidžija

Good features, but maybe not secure enough When you want to limit browsing options on desktop, mobile app doesn't connect anymore, and anyone connected can browse your whole system.. That doesn't feel very safe. Otherwise very handy.

Amazing VLC Remote It's too bad that VideoLan doesn't make their own remote but there are other people like this developer who make it possible to be able to sit on a couch and watch TV or play music without having to go back to the computer to pause, play, rewind, etc.

Scott Cavanaugh

Occasionally when I'm adding a large number of youtube videos to play, the sound will start playing on my phone, even if another video is currently playing in VLC on my computer. I need to close the app and reopen it to fix it. Other than that, this is perfect. I can sit on my bed and completely control my media center.

Got stuck Worked great and purchased the full version to get rid of the adds. Stopped working after two days. Stuck with the Playlist before crash. Non responsive. Vlc is the latest version. Please address the issue.

dustin patterson

Broken It has ceased to work after 2 days. No idea what happened. Tried reinstalling twice and no luck. It's still displaying information from the video it stopped working during, and this is after both reinstallations. Disappointed because I really liked it when it worked. 5 stars for a fix. (Just tried on a different phone and the exact same thing is happening. Same title info and totally unresponsive to control inputs. Getting around the app itself is possible, just not controlling vlc. Help meee! Is it vlc?)

Adrian Ausburn

Great app The app works great most of the time, however most of the time I add multiple files to the playlist they are in a random order and not the order they are in files or that I selected them. This is fine somewhat since I usually binge shows on random but if I'm watching them in order it can be a bit of a pain to have to add lots of files to the playlist individually. Overall it's definately worth the purchase

Finally Got It To Work! Setup was a pain. I didn't know the default HTTP port was at 8080 and my Camera system is on that port so it was conflicting with each other. Changed the port in the vlc properties page and all betta! The auto connect doesn't really do well. Make sure you have a static IP address set in your router to your home computer so it doesn't swap. Once this was all set, the app has every feature imaginable!

No internet required router/Ethernet/bam wireless remote control. Definitely RECOMMEND So far I think this is a great application. It has allowed Play,Control and searching through Video Files on a Laptop PC and its external hard drives using an Android Phone even with no internet just by using a router and Ethernet cable. Using the phone to select play,pause,FF,RW,and control the volume of Media without requiring an internet connection is convenient,the only thing more I'd like is to be able to do it all wirelessly without an internet connection using only a router(maybe there's a way?)


Brilliant I've used others in the past with some very questionable ui choices. But this one seems to be laid out perfectly. Very intuitive design and the whole thing just works.

Divyendu Sharma

Feature packed I wasn't expecting this app to be this vibrant. It has almost every feature and its quite user friendly too. Keep up the good work..

Brian Trump

Works FLAWLESSLY!!! perfect solution to remote need. Easy and helpful instructions for connection. Customer Support is very fast and solves problem. If you have VLC you must get this perfect companion.

Sharadraj Raju

Simply Awesome Just the app I was looking for..Ease of use combined with clean UI.. Loved it ☺....Only one suggestion - Please add an exit option as sometimes i have to forcestop it to remove the media controls from the homescreen swipe down menu..

Winston Smilesworth

Great app! Only thing it's missing is an emulation for keys G & H (subtitle sync -/+)

Dan Lueders

Works Great Makes it very easy to use my Mac Mini as a media server. I'd give it six stars if I could.

aditya deokar

The paid YouTube control sucks Works well with offline videos. But on trying to add YouTube videos the sound comes from cell. Considering YouTube control is a paid service, they should fix it. Otherwise paid version is quite useless

Simon Bartlett

Slick and intuitive app Looking to remote control your media? Download Vlc media player and then get this app. Job done. Autoconnects over WiFi and then you are in control. The interface is logical, and intuitive. So much easier than the alternatives. The icing on the cake would be multiple playlists.

Raul Pop

Greag app for controlling the VLC on my PC, BUT: 1. Cannot select custom subtitle when VLC cannot find one. 2. I would like to see more options especially when I paid for the app. I would like to see the option to increase or decrease the size of the subtitle font.

Lucas Jones

Awesome I hardly ever rate anything but this app is amazingly comprehensive and east to use. Kudos to the development team!

Eric McGlynn

Awful It plays full audio/video adds loudly, and at random, makes the app completely useless.

Gabriel-Andrei Mocanu

Awesome app Love the app, would be great to see the video vlc plays on the phone, it would be out of sync?

Rajesh Kumar Thakur

Woooow this is very fantasty but some problem: without internet doesn't working

Russell Wilson

Perfect Once setup (helpful guide in app took but a few minutes) it works perfectly, very responsive.

Nicholas Budd

Quick, simple and effective Setup took moments thanks to the wizard, and the remote worked as advertised. Spot on.

Tapas Ghosh

Amazing VLC Remote ? After using VLC remote, going to Lazy ?

Dimitri Dhuyvetter

Stay in your seat Never need to get up and go to your computer again, every control on your phone.

Zahir Saleh

Great stuff Lovely and works like a charm!

Ravenix Angeal

Best vlc remote app. Does exactly what it says. If it was made to control windows functions, it would be unrivaled

VLC must have Must have for those who use VLC on a PC and wants to manage the player from another room.

Abishek O.P

Volume controls Please add 200% volume control then I will give 5 stars

Nogbou Amour jean de Dieu Amontchi

Bug sometimes... very unpleasant
