“VLC is a hugely popular free media player, and for a good reason – it supports almost all file formats without the need to download additional codecs, can optimize video and audio playback for your chosen device supports streaming, and can be extended virtually infinitely with downloadable plugins. These not only add extra features to the player – but they also enable integration with other programs and streaming services.
In an ideal world everything would just work when you wanted it to, but over the years we’ve evolved all kinds of competing formats for music and video – and different delivery mechanisms too, ranging from discs to downloads and streaming. VLC Media Player knows about all of them, and that means it’s our go-to app for any media playback. Useful software
VLC Media Player has excellent tools for tweaking video and audio playback, it can play formats nobody’s mentioned for years, it’s blazingly fast, and it does everything without spyware, ads or anything else unnecessary.”
