VLC Remote app can find the player but keeps asking for a password problem

goto your VLC

Open the VLC settings pages:  VLC Menu/Tools/Preferences

Click the 'ALL' button at the bottom left of the screen
   (by default VLC hides most settings)

find 'Interface'
find 'Main interfaces'
find 'Lua'

Enter a cool password in the 'Lua HTTP' password box

At the bottom of the screen press 'save'

restart both the app and the player

Now use that password you just created.

note: this one of the steps the setup helper does for you automatically!

Actually I did run the setup helper.  However entering a new password fixed the problem.
