Newest Review: ... I've used it for several years: for DVDs, for video clips downloaded from the internet, for video taken from my camera, for music, for podcasts and more. In that time I have never once been unable to play a file, meaning I have never had to scurry around looking for an add on or go hunting for an alternative player. Quite simply VLC makes using your computer much simpler. Pros: Works on ... more

Have you ever tried to watch a video on your computer only to be greeted by an incomprehensible error message? Unfortunately with the sheer number of different video formats that is a regular occurence. There are only two solutions - install a new media player every time you need it, or install VLC Player, the one product that can handle pretty much any file with ease. VLC plays all kinds of audio and video. There is almost literally no file that it can't play. Personally, I've used it for several years: for DVDs, for video clips downloaded from the internet, for video taken from my camera, for music, for podcasts and more. In that time I have never ...

VLC is a freeware media player designed for almost anything, i initially downloaded this after i first got an .MKV file (Blu-ray) and was unable to play it with either Windows media player or the 3rd party software i had at the time which i cannot recall. After reading reviews online VLC seemed like a safe bet and i didn't realise at the time quite what a good piece of software it would be for me. VLC really is a great piece of free software, it plays almost any film file extension meaning where before you may need different types of media player for different extensions it can all be covered by one, i have as of yet never found something that cannot be ...

If like me you are fed up with Windows Media Player playing up and either rejecting or not recognising codecs for video formats then VLC is exactly what you need. This free softwate is easily found online, takes seconds to download and get up and running and will play just about everything you throw at it with minimum fuss. There is no pressure to upgrade to a fully functional paid version either, the free program does the lot. There is a version for whatever operating platform or system you are using and I'm amazed how this tiny program manages to handle what it does without the need for constant downloads or updates, there will be occasions when you will ...

I can't quite remember how I came about VLC Media player but I am grateful to whatever occured! It is now my primary media player for the main reason that there is no reason not to. Let me explain why. I think the best part of this piece of software is its versatility in terms of files. Unlike other media players it plays nearly every type of file (including ones that my laptop doesn't recognise) so there is no need to download codecs for files most of the time. It switches easily between film and music. The window becomes smaller when it is music and then bigger (up to fullscreen) when it is playing video. It works like any other media player. At ...
