Rating and comments for VLC media player


Average score 3.55 (based on 65 votes)

given by Rain on November 22, 2006

If you are not bothered by occasional instability, install this, and disable Windows Media Player... really...and though it sometimes has a small tantrum, VLC is much more reliable and dependable than anything I have used, considering that it does so very much.

I was actually shocked when I started to investigate all that this player can do, and it is lightweight, does not try to connect all the time, and does not assume you are dying to add stuff to your playlists...

Lay people, and expert users alike, will find this to be refreshing, and though it comes with most codecs, like with anything, sometimes one needs to get more.

I like it very much

Simply the easiest way to play files encoded with proprietary dvd codecs, windows media codecs, or other bizarre media formats. It "just works" straight out of the box, and I use it for my ubuntu system as well as my windows box.

It just works and works well and it's open source. Thanks to all the developers, this rocks.

It's puristic (but skinnable), fast, configurable, you can define shortcuts and it works with a lot of codecs.

ANd even if it doesn't, there's always a programmer who can add file support to the next version. They're not trying to limit file formats like M$ or Apple are.

It's great! I use it for every video file I cannot open with other more commonly used applications.
