VLC Is Bringing Sexy BackHave you ever wanted a media player that "just works?" VideoLan.org has answered that age old question with Video Lan Client (VLC). VLC can play many types of video files, DVDs, VCDs, SVCDs, and Audio CDs without any trouble at all.
VLC has many different types of interfaces and advanced features. I like the Open Disc feature. You can click on File | Open Disc and choose the disc type and the disc starts playing. The disc (DVD) menus are also interactive. Clicking an item with the mouse; plays the items contents.
Much Internet content is now encoded in several different formats to ensure the best data compression. VLC handles avi, mpeg, and even flash content without any problem.
I also like the Preferences of VLC. You can access it by clicking Settings | Preferences. VLC did a good job of documenting the Hot Keys. You can see the Hotkeys by clicking on Interface | Hotkeys settings.
You can also transcode and save files as different types. Click on File | Wizard. The wizard walks you through the process. And finally, if you ever need help, the forums at forum.videolan.org are very helpful.
Overall, VLC is a must have for video enthusiasts! Go to VideoLan.org and download your free copy now!
