OK, No More Green Line

VLC has been the most useful and most used of all my desktop programs, it does more than any other player. I don't understand why this has so many issues. I played with this all afternoon, it doesn't even play a quarter of the codecs I have. There is practically NO codec support. No green line, but many of my videos have NO video output whatsoever. On the few that played I had to wait up to a half an hour for playback to start. At this point, Video Jack is kicking VLC's ****. And THAT is a shame.

Misses the mark

First everyone has been raving about the UI. I'm sorry but, no. None of the controls have popup tool tips. I went into the files section and was stuck, the main tool bar disappeared. I have over 1200 albums on my system; it's been two days and this VLC has only found 588, because it stops working when minimize it. Not only that, but no album shows more than 2 songs; I'm not sure what's going on there, when you find an album it should list all the songs of that album. When I play music there are these little interruptions sounding like digital stream distortion, kind of a grrrr sound. My favorite feature of the full Win 7 version was the ability to play fully copied DVD from a folder on the hard drive, however this app finds the folders, but says there's nothing inside them to play. I'm keeping the app installed maybe updates will come down the line that will fix these glaring flaws.

It is not the best but it is good . Also crashes a lot.

I really like the color combination of black and orange it would be helpful more if you did a little tweaks to the music player. Also a point to note it crashes a lot in windows 10 and while minimizing music pause too I understand videos have to pause but why music , Even I am unable to select multiple tracks to add to play list. The app can have many more updates and I hope they refine this soon.

rarely works

luck of the draw if this app actually will play a video. better off downloading the application direct from the main site and installing 100% success rate with that version compared to on a good day about 30% with this app.

Brilliant UI, bad sound quality.

I really, really love the UI, and I was willing to switch because of this... But then I actually tried to listen to something, and my ears bled a little. It seems that it's just over-amplified, but that makes it sound horrible. It feels like it's using software decoding, which isn't right... Everything just sounds distorted on my machine. (SoundBlaster ZxR) Groove actually sounds better. WHY...? And as a suggestion, why not allow this to sync to the phone app? Perhaps in the future? Just fix the sound (probably harder than it appears, no?), and add sync functionality, and you have a winner. Thanks!

Please, please make it possible to play music

...in the background. That's it and I will shift to VLC forever. The UI meets my favor, artist info is great. Only the lack of playing music in the background. Ok?

Needs Updated

1.) Needs updated to Win 10 format (has the Win10 look, but needs official format. Ex: Remove fullscreen button and hamburger menu then add a back button) 2.) Needs ability to auto fetch metadata (Album name, album art, song info, etc.) 3.) Video Interface (play, pause, etc.) needs to fade away when mouse sits idle for more than 3 seconds OR when clicking outside of the app. Its a great start, however, it should be just as functional as the desktop version. Keep up the great work, I look forward to some updates!

Version notes

In this update, we enabled TagLib, worked on the hardware decoding and several awesome features. The user interface has been updated to match the Windows 10 design, and hundreds of bugs are fixed.
