Pros and Cons

  • The use of the application is completely free, there is no need for additional subscriptions or other financial operations, as all the functionality and features are initially available in the application;
  • With the app, you can control your headphones and even customize them with specific gestures for easy adjustment of the viewing process;
  • VLC is one of the few applications of its kind that supports 360-degree video;
  • VLC's interface is simple, not cluttered with unnecessary information, and menu translation is available in several languages;
  • Viewing folders with videos is done directly through the media library, so there is no possibility of losing material and you can return to any video later by finding it in bookmarks;
  • The app supports software decoding and ARM processors.
  • When switching from vertical mode to horizontal mode (and vice versa), there is a small "glitch" in the video if it happens during the playback process;
  • Automatic orientation sometimes needs to be adjusted and tailored to the device's movement (if the application is used on Android version 2.2);
  • On some devices, the application simply crashes upon launch (the issue has been noticed on Samsung).

More about VLC

VLC has a comprehensive functionality consisting of free capabilities and tools that contribute to making video playback or audio listening comfortable. It should be noted that VLC supports all formats of playable files, a collection of materials from an extended media library, as well as support for network streams.

Pleasant features include support for various versions of Android (including 2.2 and 4.2), compatibility with Android TV, and support for Chromebook devices. The application works great with built-in and external subtitles, and includes the ability to select an audio track. Among other pleasant additions introduced by the end of 2023, there are filters, an equalizer, support for an additional display, and immersive sound.

VLC is a useful addition for those who prefer to spend their free time watching media files. Not without flaws, but the large number of advantages of the functionality and built-in helper tools outweigh the small spoonful of tar that every application has. VLC is actively developing and has no plans to stop at the basic functionality it already has.
