    "Excellent program with one drawback"

    July 3, 2013  |   By GERRY RAINS

    Pros

    It can play more different sound formats than any other program with which I am familiar.

    Cons

    Big Con. If you try to run any program of the format *.bin VLC Media Player takes precedence over it and the other program will not run. The only cure is to uninstall VLC, run your program, and then reinstall VLC. This is a real pain.

    Your con is not really valid. Any program could take over after installing it.
    right click on your *.bin choose the program that should run it and set the default.
