Remote control your desktop VLC™ from your Phone/Tablet (play, pause, stop, volume, fullscreen, change video/song, dvd menu control, change audio tracks, change subtitle tracks, etc.)
Streaming from Android to Computer (Video, music and photos)
Its internal video player allows streaming content from the Computer to Android (Video, music and photos)
If you have any question, request or complaint, please don’t give the app a low rate, just send us an email and we will answer within a few hours (sometimes within a few minutes!). Be sure we will do our best to solve your specific problem.
To configure VLC™ in your PC/Mac, just download and run the following script in your PC (only windows):
(Remember running it as administrator the first time: Right click on it and then “Run as Administrator”)
Windows will ask you permission to make changes in the installation folder and allow VLC™ to access the network. Those actions are necessary for proper function, please allow them.
What does the script do?
Basically, It starts VLC™ with its web interface enabled, and passes it some parameters to improve codec finding and rtsp streaming performance.
If you don’t use windows, you can follow this connection guide:

V-Direct user reviews :
It’s pretty good all round. It does what it’s needed for, but there are a few flaws. The interface looks very dated and the file browser doesn’t make sense. You can’t browse for specific folders, you can only look at the folders that the app itself picked.
Works as intended, however, I wish there was an ability to import an existing VLC playlist from the app on your phone. Also wish you could select songs to create a playlist from within V-Direct and that there was a scrambler and a loop option. That feature to create playlists from your recently played seems pointless. Lastly, the overall appearance of the app is unappealing.
Testing this app today. It’s tiny in size compared to the other bloated & poorly designed VLC remotes. It’s not perfect, but so far stable & seems to do all & more others do. I can suggest some improvements for my usage needs, like showing current VLC meta data. People who can’t configure it need to try more. I mainly use it on cheap Android phones to control a Win10 device running VLC 3.xxx with a playlist of my fave music streams/radio stations. The Win10 audio goes into a home theater system.
Struggled a bit at first to connect to my PC, but was finally successful after changing the default password on Android vlc direct and PC vlc Very pleased with the working result ! Thanks to the developers!
sort of works.. but some media (.mpg) that plays fine on vlc won’t play/cast on this..”load vlc playlist: does absolutely nothing. the media folder list is a gui nightmare.. can’t even read the folder & file names..
this app is soo Good i like this and this is easy to use when winter are coming you can easly listen your songs and operate, you see you full p.c in this app all songs. Developers i apperacite you, please update audio bitrate last bitrate is 192kbps you do this 320kbps bitrate, thanks
Not hard to set up and works perfectly, this has dramatically enhanced my life as I can control my standing speakers via my phone.
Works better than anything else I’ve found. I suspect some of the problems I’ve had were actually on the server side.
Vlc Direct Started to work again after several manual configuration in Windows , your bat script link is down
Needs to be updated. The app is still rather unpolished and clunky which makes it difficult to use and also there is no way to jump 5 or seconds back or forward which is a needed feature when watching movies or shows. I’m using a combination of this and VLC Mobile Remote to get a great UI as well as Functionality so at the moment it’s working really amazing.
