Freeware

VLC Media Player is an open source video player for reproducing all kind of media files on your computer or device, and which will work especially well if you have Windows 7, XP and iOS.

Sometimes, “free” doesn’t mean “bad” and that’s the philosophy of VideoLAN (VLC). This open software can reproduce all your videos, no matter what kind of format they are in, because they will work on VLC. It will reproduce your music as well and its download is pretty easy.

It is a good complement for your computer since it is also compatible with programs like SopCast, which allows the smooth running not only of your own movies, but also high quality streaming videos. Furthermore, it is compatible with many Windows OS such as Windows 7 and XP

Media center

VLC has a great diversity of functions. It not only reproduces your videos, it also easily converts them into the format you prefer. Select the bitrate and the type of file and it’s done. You can also take screenshots and configure a shortcut to do it.

VLC Media Player reproduces music and streaming

This player allows you to select the audio channel in case your video is dual audio, and also includes an option to set subtitles in srt format. Check the preferences and the video options to change the different visuals such as brightness and contrast. Set the filters you want, hit the play button and configure your ideal way of watching videos.

VLC offers music and streaming

As a media player VLC Media Player reproduces music and streaming. Audio features go from normalization to sampling music. This makes it packed with capability since it can also record sound from a standard microphone, which is a fun thing to try. You can also set the general volume to 200%, but it may distort your sound since it does this digitally.

VLC also can stream video and audio from the Internet. Connect yourself to a broadcast channel and enjoy a whole world of multimedia content. If you can connect to a link, you can watch TV from your computer in HD quality, while it also works as a host or as a server, so you can upload or download a multimedia signal without too much trouble.

The version 2.2.0 has been designed especially for iOS7 and within the new features included are: the ability to play the videos stored in Google Drive and Dropbox via high-bandwidth Streaming, new multitouch gestures, it has improved the process of downloading by a local network, a better organization of series's chapters, supporting new codecs, protocols and formats; and the protection of our Library with lock code.
