    "VLC is better"

    May 28, 2012  |   By 9344429000076

    Pros

    It's free & easy to use.

    Cons

    Even with the large number of codecs K-Lite has, there are still some files it won't play that VLC will.
    On my Win7 64 bit machine, it plays .flac files 6 seconds behind the timing so when the timing pointer reaches the end & playback stops, there is still 6 seconds to go & you miss out on the last few seconds. VLC plays the same piece properly. It's strange that the 32 bit version on a Vista machine works properly.

    Summary

    I keep my version of K-Lite up to date in case it overtakes VLC in usefulness. At the moment VLC is better. I especially like the VLC function of the + and - keys for instantly speeding up and slowing down video replays.
    We're in the wonderful position to have both of these programs for free.
