    Select View option and click Add Interface and then click Web Interface. Close and launch VLC again. Allow access if a prompt appears. Now install VLC stream from the App store to your handset. Open it and make sure you are in the same network. Make sure VLC is open in the computer. Select Connect option in VLC stream and detect VLC server in your computer with a scan. Use the Browse option to view the video files in your computer via WiFi and then play.
