I usually browse tutorial videos, movies and TV series over the internet and I find it difficult to watch videos online. I usually encounter buffering and intermittent connection.

VideoLAN Client (VLC) media player is a free and wonderfully easy to use video player that helps users to replicate and or covert all media files on computer. Its performance is superb when one has windows 7, Xp and or IOS. For any kind of video and music no matter the format, I have used VLC Media player. On my computer, the VLC media player has been compatible with my Window 7 and gives me high quality streaming. It is also compatible with XP. It can play different video formats like MPEG-1,2 &4, DivX, WMV files and supports audio plating like MIDI, MP3, WMA among many others.

If one has dual audio, it is possible to select audio channel, adjust preferences, brightness and contrast. The user can chose the perfect way of watching videos by setting the required filters and select the play button. Interestingly when watching videos, one can take snapshots and save them. I have had fun in recording music from standard microphone and the volume is adjustable to 200% though this may distort one’s sound.

With my smart phone, I use VLC Media Player to watch TV which comes out with quality. The VLC media player 2.2.0 is for IOS7 with capability to stream and play videos from Google Drive and Dropbox. Other features are better organized chapter series, new codecs support, protocols and formats and use of lock code to protect library.

Pros

  • It is compatible with other programs
  • Provides a very simple interface
  • Avails an open source media player

Cons
