"Great Player when you can't find CODECS"
Fast loading, intuitive user interface, but most important - It finds the CODECS when others fail. I haven't had a chance to explore all of the new features, but I especially like the ability to adjust the video output to fit my TV screen.
May take a little getting used to for the novice. It would be helpful to have some sort of PDF Tutorial to reference all of the capabilities of this new Media Player.
I've been using VLC Media Player for years. I downloaded this new version, installed it and fired it up to see what I could see. Honestly, I didn't see much difference from the older version. They mentioned in the writeup about it that somehow you could record streaming video, and that would be a really cool feature if I knew how to use it.
Otherwise, VLC has always been my go-to backup when Windows Media Player failed. They really need a more descriptive media for explaining all of the features. Perhaps a VIDEO TUTORIAL!!!
