Regarding the playback of unsupported video formats (avi, mkv, etc), the app’s help page indicates that a “Send To” button should be available at the top right of the screen and that any application that can play such a video type should then appear on an “open with” menu. Upon attempting to send an mkv to VLC using this procedure, all I can do is “Send Link” using the “Share” button that appears in the top right after selecting an mkv file. Am I doing something wrong?
I have My Cloud version 4.4.1 installed on my iPhone 6 running iOS 9.0.2, as well as VLC version 2.6.6. I know that VLC can play mkv files stored locally on the device, so why can I not open mkv files on my cloud in the VLC app on iOS? I confirmed that I can do this on the current Android versions of both applications, so what stops the application from sending content to VLC on iOS?
