Thank you so much, I love using VLC for so many reasons and haven't really been using it because of the combination of the horrifically small buttons and my big fat fingers. I've been looking for a way to make the buttons bigger but this will work just great! Thanks again!


Thank you so much. It´s been years since I was trying something to STOP/PAUSE VLC in toutch screen mode. Today I find out that I could turn volume up and down, then I end up here. Thanks


You can change the short skip time length in hotkey settings to whatever you desire.


I have VLC downloaded and it works perfectly in computer mode, but the minute I switch the screen around to tablet mode, VLC doesn't load properly. I can hear the music, but the image becomes distorted and will not allow me to do anything on the touch screen.

Under TOOLS, I have PREFERENCES, then INTERFACE SETTINGS but there is not an option for mouse gestures.
Under TOOLS, I have CUSTOMIZE INTERFACES but again, there is not an option for mouse gestures.

Is there a way for me to use VLC in tablet mode or is this a lost cause?

I just tested the latest version of VLC (version 2.2.4) on my HP Spectre, a laptop with a 360-degree hinge that switches to tablet mode.

It worked correctly in both modes, regular and tablet. I could change the volume by dragging my finger up and down, and fast forward (and rewind) by dragging my finger horizintally.

I think the tweaks I discuss in this blog entry are no longer needed.
