Yesterday, the VLC media player for iPhone was released and we could not keep our hands off it. While we really loved the VLC player’s abilities we came across an error which all iPhone 4 users are facing currently. When you play any video without headphones the player says “No Volume Available” and speakers don’t work. Here’s a temporary solution.
The problem with VLC for iPhone is that the iPhone 4 speakers aren’t compatible with the App causing the No Volume Availble error. It seems the Applidium developers tested the app on iPhone 3G and 3GS only. They must have not tested the app on the iPhone 4. They haven’t posted any comment or update so far on iTunes or on their website.
So for now, use headphones while playing videos. The audio works just fine with any pair of headphones.
We think iPhone 4 is the only device that has the No Volume Error error right now. We will post the full review of the VLC for iPhone very soon after we have spent some time with it.
By the way, all your torrent movie releases will work on the iPhone and iPod now. No need to convert to iTunes friendly formats. Just copy the AVI or MKV files and you can watch them on your iDevice. HD movies aren’t supported yet but that would be a lot to ask for right now anyway. We’re pretty happy with what we have for now in the alpha release.
Stay tuned for more updates and do let us know about your first impressions of the app.
