Media Player that can Play all Music and Video Files

Chris | Live Tech Support | Video Help | Add to iTunes – A question came in during our Round Table, asking what player can be used on your computer to play any type of media file format. The answer was unanimous… VLC.

Four of my friends joined me for this discussion: Kat, SC_Thor, Wirelesspacket, and last but certainly not least… Datalore.

Video Lan VLC player is a cross-platform media player and streaming server. VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, …) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

VLC, as I already mention, is cross platform: you can use it on Windows, OS X, and even Linux! It’s completely open source, and the source code is easy to get to on their website if you care to try and make it work on an unsupported Operating System.
