VLC is a great, free and popular media player that can handle almost any file format.

VLC Remote lets you sit back enjoy your movies and music while you control things from your easy chair.

It is a joy to use - no more reaching for the mouse when you want to pause your show, select the next episode, or play some different music.

VLC Remote will work with the iPhone 3GS and later. It won't work with the iPhone 3g - but you can use Ye Olde VLC Remote on the 3g.


Needless to say, we loved this app for everything its got.

Basically, if you use VLC and have an iPhone you will soon find that this is an essential app to enhance your home movie experience.

Everything about this app is a must have from the fast loading time to the easy controls for the VLC player.
-I use this app

The VLC Remote app is priceless to meI definitely recommend anyone with an iPhone or iPod Touch (or a Pre) purchase this.

5/5 Simply put if you have an iPhone or iPod touch and use VLC on your computer then you need this app.

As far as I'm concerned, this is a necessary download! ... Works great, setup was super easy and I use this every day. MUST HAVE!!!
-US Reviewer

This app does exactly what it's supposed to do. It works flawlessly ... Was very easy to set up as well. VLC is one of the best video players you can get for the desktop and this app is a perfect way to bring that to the iPhone. Do yourself a favour and get this app if you use VLC on the PC.
