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.

I found this open source video application software that allows me to play several multimedia formats in my personal computer and laptop. I can watch my favorite videos in an instant through this program's perceptive graphical user interface. This video application tool can also be installed in different operating system's like MAC, Windows or Linux. I experienced the most breakthrough development can be found in MAC operating system which allows me to play Blu-ray formats . Another cool feature of this video program tool is that it adds backing for VLC's lua based extension files. This extension file assists different bilateral features such as information of movies, subtitles and even twitter posts.

To sum it all up, this free video program tool is the most well known, compatible with different platform, in various format, and an all around media player that can open many types of video formats.

Pros
