By Hande Njr

On Thursday, September 4, 2014

I use this player often to play music or videos in different formats. There is one feature that excites me and I haven’t seen on other players is that around Christmas time the interface of the player has a Santa claus cap on the VLC icon. It is simply a great media player used for playing most of audio and video formats. It is available for various platforms; Windows, iOS, Linux, and android among others. It is available in many languages and is very small (22mb) for windows users. It is easy to install and it will always notify you if there are any updates or upgrades when they come up.

It has custom skins which one can change to their liking; it can be used with other programs or plugins. It was started as an academic project. It has eight basic functions on the upper side of its interface, which each has a dropdown list with various tasks execution capabilities these are; media, playback, audio, video, subtitle, tools, view and help. These functions will help the user do a lot ranging from simply opening a media file from a location in the computer to complex tasks like adjustments and effects. On the lower part of the program interface are ten buttons; Play, previous, stop, next, toggle, extended settings, random, toggle playlist, repeat and the volume button.

The basic appearance of this player makes it easy to use, and the fact that you can drag and drop your media on the player. It is a great product and it is free of charge thus you can download it and install it on your device.

Pros

  • It has a simple and basic interface.
  • It has a lot of functions.

Cons

  • It crashes a lot of times.
