Editors' Review

+

VLC Media Player (64-bit) is a favorite of many video watchers thanks to abundant format support, style, and customization options. There aren't many videos this app can't play and play amazingly well. It's more than enough to be the only video player you'll ever need on your computer.

In addition to being a universal media player, this app is open source, which means you can find people who create new add-ons and builds for it, as well as create your own version. The basic version of the program is anything but, featuring playlist and streaming support in addition to the ability to play just about any video on your PC. It gives you plenty of screen real estate by placing all of the buttons on its menu at the bottom and making them small enough to be ignored. VLC Media Player (64-bit) lets you add audio and video effects as you're watching a video for extra fun -- and supports more playlist formats for easy, hands-free viewing. It even lets you create playlists on the fly and edit them from inside the app. The app supports extensions and add-ons from all over the Web if you can find them.

The standard version of the program covers most of the bases you need, though. VLC Media Player (64-bit) has consistently been one of the most popular video players for years, and that isn't changing anytime soon. It gives users more flexibility and format support than most other players and stays on the cutting edge in terms of features.

"Should be Rated Number ONE in Media Players."

January 21, 2015  |  By ganerd

2015-01-21 22:36:12  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: VLC Media Player (64-bit) 2.1.5

Pros

VLC is a lightweight (as to memory usage), even allow portable use. It is also fully Skinable. Can run on any operating system with up to 64bit op systems, and can play high def movies, including Blue Ray MKV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MP4, WAV, WMA, MPEG, ISO, Quicktime and much more!

Microsoft's Personal Privacy/Security Problem, since June 28, 2001, when they settled with the US antitrust suit. According to MS' own whistle blowers, to reduce their huge anti-trust fines, secretively agreed to include government spyware in ALL their products reporting pornography, pirated media, etc.

Cons

Can't think of any ...

Summary

Since VLC is NOT proprietary like MS and it is open source, you can be assured there is zero government spyware installed as in Win Media player.

"Plays Blu-Ray Movies You Ripped to Your Hard Drive"

August 09, 2014  |  By andrewbaggins

2014-08-09 10:51:40  |  By andrewbaggins

 |  Version: VLC Media Player (64-bit) 2.1.5

Pros

If you rip a Blu-Ray to your computer's hard drive (to save wear and tear on the Blu-Ray disc, of course) you can play the ripped movie by right-clicking on the main movie file and selecting "Play with VLC". The main movie file is usually in a folder labeled "Stream", and it's always the largest size file.

Cons

That ugly orange striped traffic cone that VLC uses as its logo!

Summary

We've used VLC player for around 10 years or so and it's always been avery reliable. It has many extra features hidden within Options/Configuration screens, including streaming video/movies/music/internet radio/etc. to other computers on your home network.

"What every app should be"

April 05, 2014  |  By Kuhscheiss

2014-04-05 11:45:41  |  By Kuhscheiss

 |  Version: VLC Media Player (64-bit) 2.1.3

Pros

My online experiences would be much poorer without this. Instead of sending warning messages, it plays, almost everything, and it provides corrections for almost everything

Cons

None unless I want to get really picky, which, considering I'm stuck with Microsoft crap would be REAL nitpicking.
