The best video player out there!

VLC media player is a great application that works on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It is by far one of the best video players out there. It can play various video file formats as well as DVD's, CD's, VCD's.  VLC media player is free to download and use. It was initially released in 2001 by a group at Ecole Centrale Paris and since then has become very popular. Today, it is an open source project and anyone can contribute to it from around the world. It is amazing how many different audio and video codecs this application can handle. This is definitely a good media player for watching videos off the Internet. It is licensed under the GNU general public license. If you are looking for a great video player for your computer then VLC media player is it. Check out their website for more information, skins and to download the application.

  1. I use both VLC and SMPlayer, the latter as good as the former, and with an edge: it remembers where you left off when you stop a movie before its ending and resumes at that point on the next playing.

  2. Still (almost in 2011), VLC doesn't know how to place the subtitls UNDER the movie. This is a big minus for VLC.
    One vote for SMPlayer from me.
