VLC Media Player remains one of the most used and appreciated media players thanks to powerful features and easiness of use. It can certainly play anything, from media files to discs.
It connects to all kinds of devices, gismos and streams. No codec packs are needed for most common video formats, such as MPEG-2, DivX, H.264 and others.
As it covers everything in this respect, we will now turn to not so common features in a video player: DVB Satellite, digital TV and video acquisition. Interestingly enough, users may also benefit from subtitle and tag support, a variety of video filters, some simple skins and CPU acceleration.
