After you setup VLC as shown in the Setup Wizard, app should connect to VLC on your PC. If it fails to connect, there may be one or more reasons, to figure out the issue, try the below steps one by one:
- Start VLC on your PC and make sure that you're using latest version and also ensure that you have set it up as shown in the app.
- Open any browser on your PC (Chrome, Firefox or any) then go to http://localhost:8080 and press enter, browser prompts you to log in, just use password you set up on VLC in password field, leave username field empty to login.
You'll be able to control VLC from the browser but if you get an error on browser, either you haven't setup the VLC or port 8080 is on your PC is used by another application. Try setting custom port and see does it works ( VLC - > Tools -> Preferences -> All -> Input/Codec -> HTTP Server port -> Change it to (9090)).

However, if you could control VLC from browser, but not from the app.
- Do the same test given above, but instead of using http://localhost:8080 on your browser, use http://YourComputerIPAddress:8080 (instructions to get ip address).
If the browser fails to connect to VLC, then Firewall or Anti-Virus on your computer may blocking the connection or your computer is on public network.
Try the above IPAddress test by,
- disabling Windows Firewall or Anti-Virus on your PC.
- change the connected Wifi network to private.
