VLC HD Remote (+ Stream)


VLC HD Remote is a free app for using your Android device as remote control for all versions of the VLC video player, including VLC 2.0.

VLC HD Remote is a high quality app, easy to use and offers all features one could expect of a VLC remote, such as VLC playlists and DVD controls.

There are two features that can be unlocked with "VLC HD Remote Pro Unlocker" http://goo.gl/lg53b that can be tested:

(1) Streaming from VLC to Android devices
(2) Streaming from Android devices to VLC

If you find a bug or have a suggestion, we are happy to hear from you.

Notes on compatibility:

VLC 2.1:
- This version of VLC requires a non-empty password for its HTTP interface.

This can be configured in VLC:
1. Menu Tools/Preferences
2. Show settings, set to "All".
3. In the tree: Interface/Main Interfaces/Lua
4. Lua HTTP, Password. Enter a password, e.g. "MyPassword".
5. Afterwards, restart VLC.
6. In our app, you can tap and hold to edit a device. Edit the "Controller URL" and insert the password inside the URL as in this example: "http://:[email protected]:8080"

- VLC repeatedly changed its codec options. This means that streaming does not work with our old defaults that were tailored to run on a wide variety of devices.
If you are able to figure out working streaming options for VLC that work with your device, it is theoretically possible to enter them in our app in the preferences. Since this can and did change with updates and even minor revisions of VLC, this is extremely difficult to maintain. We are sorry that we currently do not have the time to do this.

VLC 2.0.1 (NOT recommended):
- Remote control features work.
- This version has a bug with the h.264 encoder, which causes streaming to fail.

VLC 2.0.0:
- Remote control features work.
- Streaming works. Legacy mode does not work.
- Note all steps in the help: If streaming stops after 60 seconds, adjust the RTSP session timeout in VLC's settings to "-1" as the help suggests.
- Subtitles for streams have rendering problems. Either try VLC 1.1.11, or as workaround change width and height to "1" in the stream preferences.

VLC 1.1.11:
- Remote control features work.
- Both legacy mode and normal streaming works.
- Due to a bug in this version of VLC, DVD controls need changes to a file of VLC. Refer to the in-app help for more information.
