VLC Streamer 3 is now live.
This should fix most issues related to iOS7, and also gives the UI an update.
The remaining issue is related to movies copied to the device – these currently only play if your device is connected to some kind of network – even if you are not ‘properly’ connected.
So for example;
- If your wifi is off, and your cellular data connection is off, then the movie won’t play. (We have submitted a bug to Apple, and are working on a workaround)
- If your wifi is on, and you are connected to a hotspot – but you haven’t paid to use the hotspot – then your movie will still play!
- If your cellular data connection is on, but you have turned off cellular data for VLC Streamer in the settings – then your movie will still play!
- If your cellular data is on, but you have no data connection (out of range) – then your movie will still play! (I have had this reported by users, but haven’t independently checked this point)
I know this is frustrating, and I’m working on a complete fix – but hopefully this will handle at least some cases.
Please bear with us.
