  1. Attempted to download direct and no results except an iap file that hpprint was trying to process.
    Download via app store give me VLC mobile which after download states I need IOS 7.
    I am using an ipad 1 which can only run up to IOS 5.1.1.
    Anyone help me?

    Yes, the iPad-1 is now sadly way out of date - - but WHY do you need VLC as the ipad plays all kinds of media files already?

    I wanted to loop the video. All I can do is play it.

    System was shutdown and restarted between uninstall and retry.

    Hmm; clear the browser history & cache, then retry. If that fails, try a different browser.
    If you would post the URL you are trying to download from, I could verify which end is having the problem

    Hmm; I followed that url and selected the techspot link just fine.
    Verify your browser Download directory is correct AND it actually still exists.
