CONVERT SOME OF THE VIDEO FORMATS INTO AUDIO AND ENJOY YOURSELF

By Martin Maguna

On Tuesday, July 14, 2015

REVIEW

This is just another form of converting some of the video formats or also audio format and it is downloaded from the internet in that when you download a certain video you can either decide to view it using the vlc media player mode which for me I think it’s the best and this is because the images here are more clearer and also the sound that is the volume is also very good as you can be able to increase it up to 200 percent. Also maybe you are viewing some video content on your computer you can also decide to view it using the windows media player format or also using the vlc media format for me which I think using the vlc mode is the best mode.

FEATURES

The features of the vlc media payer include

Clearer videos available

A higher volume is also available

CONCLUSION

I think the graphics should be improved upwards and I think that is all for me nothing else.

Pros

  • The volume is very great
  • The graphics are a bit good

Cons

  • it is not available in some formats

Your home cinema is ready to shine with this fantastic cone

By Will Terry

On Tuesday, April 1, 2014

I remember that computer age when you needed to install a codec in order to play a video you get from a friend or from a DVD. With VLC Media Player all that now belongs to the past since it plays any file I tried without a problem. This audio and video player has become very handy since all the basic functions that other applications could offer are included in this as well. Additionally, since it is an open source program, the community around it tries to keep it updated with new features and functions, collaborating with the official developers.

VLC is more than it can be expected, I can use it not only for my local videos but I can also play streaming videos. With the new browsers some people may think that this is not necessary, but counting with a good audio configuration and my own made settings for VLC, video and audio looks simply great.

The thing I think I like the most is the high number of features the application grants. The first time I tried it I thought that other player were much better than the simple cone application, but I couldn’t be more wrong. VLC can manage your videos, songs, and play online radio stations, all of this without taking into account the advanced functions it hides. Take a look at this application and discover a new way to play your multimedia files.

Pros

  • It plays all the files you need
  • Support for video and audio streaming
  • Advanced configurations and functions included
  • High resolution formats are well-played

Cons

  • It can’t play Blu-ray discs at the moment
  • It can have some issues with the performance
  • Interface too simple for most users
  • I had some issues with the sound sometimes
