Windows will ask you permission to make changes in the installation folder and allow VLC™ to access the network. Those actions are necessary for proper function, please allow them.

What does the script do?
Basically, It starts VLC™ with its web interface enabled, and passes it some parameters to improve codec finding and rtsp streaming performance.

If you don't use windows, you can follow this connection guide:

    I don't write app reviews but this one kicks a$$. Apple offers nothing of this sort without paying!!! What you do is set up a vpn to a server with all your music, connect your mobile device and stream 1000s of songs anywhere any time. LTE or WIFI!! Fantastic shake the devolper s hand on this one
