Playing the vast majority of video and audio formats found online today can be a pain. You’d need almost a separate media player to play each format. The traditional software that comes with your OS usually doesn’t play some of the most popular video formats such FLV, MKV, H.264 videos, etc…

This is where VLC Media Player comes in handy. How so? Hundreds of millions of user can’t be wrong. VLC Media Player is one of the most popular media players on the web. It’s a great alternative to Window Media Player and iTunes. VLC instantly allows you to play almost every video format without downloading a codec, unlike the other media players. Best of all, you can play a video file while it’s still being downloaded. No need to wait for the download to fully complete and play the video.

VLC Media Player isn’t only for playing videos. It’s also great for music. It comes with great features including an equalizer and also the option to create and manage playlists. VLC also allows you to convert videos and also has support for TV capturing cards. The look and feel of it might not be the best. However you can always download many of the skins available online and customize it as you desire. After all it’s free and looks shouldn’t really matter that much as long as it’s stable and lightweight.
