How to Transfer Movies & Videos to VLC for iPhone/iPad using Wi-fi Upload

When VLC was back on the App Store, I was excited to have an all-powerful media player for the iPhone/iPad finally.

How to Transfer Movies and Videos to VLC for iPhone or iPad using Wi-fi Upload

Wi-fi upload is a really great feature. First off, there’s no wires, copy-paste, and sync. And that’s a huge relief. Obviously, the only thing you need is a Wi-fi network to which both your iPhone/iPad and your computer (that has the file) are connected.

Wi-fi upload also makes it dead simple as far as interfaces are concerned.

Step #4. Click on Upload or just drag and drop the video files that you want to transfer to your iPhone/iPad.

Wait for the transfer to finish.

The VLC app for your iPhone/iPad should auto-update the media list and show the newly uploaded files. If they’re not compatible (like if you add .aac or .mp3 files), they won’t show up in the app even if you’ve got a successful file transfer.
