Experiencing issues with VLC on my mobile for the past 7 months—specifically, created folders disappearing and media missing from the playlist. Seeking solutions or advice from anyone who has encountered and resolved similar problems. Thanks!

This was not an upgrade. VLC is a dynamite program but this upgrade doesn't pass muster.

Still very, VERY slow to start. I even have it installed to an SSD, still takes 5 to 8 seconds to load. Insane

First of all : I lake it
But .....
When I start a video, the interface is partly off screen all the time.
VLC positions its window in the lower right corner of my monitor - very annoying - I can't use it this way.

My only complaint is that is is very very slow to start. Even if I just ran it, it still starts slow. Shouldnt it still be in memory?

Pros: VLC is one of the best player that I have ever used but except last 7 months

Cons: I've been using VLC on my mobile for the past 6 years, but in the last 7 months, I've encountered several issues. The main problem is that I create a folder, but after some time, the folder vanishes, and I can't find my media in the playlist. If anyone has a solution for this, please let me know.
Thank you!

Bottom Line: Experiencing issues with VLC on my mobile for the past 7 months—specifically, created folders disappearing and media missing from the playlist. Seeking solutions or advice from anyone who has encountered and resolved similar problems. Thanks!

Pros: One of the best video players out there for sure. It now supports google chromecast - which for me is a big deal. Overall the thing is excellent - plays pretty much any video you toss at it.

Cons: Take a bit to load - a small price to pay though for a killer piece of freeware.

Bottom Line: I gotta give it 5 stars - and it's hard to get 5 stars from me :)

Good media player, with internal codecs. It should work for most.
For those saying it has trouble with some video formats, you might try disabling 'Accelerated video output (Overlay)' in video preferences.

Personally I prefer Media Player Classic - Home Cinema(along with standalone filters offered at Sourceforge) as default for most video formats, a few kept with Windows Media Player and what's left going to VLC.

Takes forever to load on Windows now, doesn't play H265 worth a crap, the android version does not allow seek at all. Strange that everyone loves this player so much.

VLC is an amazing media player but it does NOT work with DXVA and therefore the cpu usage can be quite high sometimes.

A working DXVA implementation is much needed!
