    "Works Beautifully on any machine, with any video file"

    August 16, 2010  |   By RubyFox292

    Version: VLC Media Player 1.1.2

    Pros

    Opens every single file I have every asked it to open
    Can modify basic characteristics of the audio or video easily
    Simple but powerful
    No downloading codecs, this has it covered

    Cons

    Nothing at all, it is a must have on any computer

    Summary

    I have used VLC player for years. It will open anything I've tried. This makes life so much easier...who wants to waste time downloading codecs? I have never, ever had it crash any computer I've run it on unlike some of the reports here, and I've personally had it on 3 different computers of mine, plus 2 family members. Not to say it couldn't happen, but I'm not sure how...its never even frozen so that I've had to kill it with Task Manager. Its a stable, solid, highly functional simple app. Love it.

    "Well featured video player"

    August 16, 2010  |   By GuardianAngel42

    Version: VLC Media Player 1.1.2

    Pros

    Good feature set: Audio-Video resynchronization, screenshot ability, color adjustments, and several fun things like cropping and color modification

    Captures video (not tested by me), wide file format support, and good playback

    Cons

    Poor in-app media navigation, must go through Windows explorer in order to access media (fine for video, very poor for music)

    Generally complex for the average user

    Summary

    I enjoy having settings to pour through. I like having the option to change almost anything I want. I love this program for VIDEOS, not music. I use Windows Explorer from the get go instead of navigating through the drop down menus so its use of the drop down menus doesn't affect me. If you are the type of person who is easily overwhelmed by excessive menus, choose this program with care.

    "Versatile Media Player"

    August 15, 2010  |   By Anatsunin

    Version: VLC Media Player 1.1.2

    Pros

    Plays just about any media format out there.

    Cons

    I've tried to play some of my guitar songs that recorded and wanted to slow them down so I could hear them note for note but it kept crashing because of that.

    Summary

    The only thing that it has above Windows Media Player is that it can play more media files from my use with it. Other than that, it is a descent media player. I use an XP.

    August 14, 2010  |   By coolkams03

    Version: VLC Media Player 1.1.2

    Pros

    Check out the summary

    Cons

    Hard to say. Well, I don't use it for listening to music. I use WMP or WINAMP.

    Summary

    1. Very light weight.
    2. Plays anything and everything.
    3. Easy controls.
    4. Shortcuts keys for everything.
    5. Handles subtitles beautifully.
    6. Advanced options to tweak things.
    7. Doesn't hog resources much.
    8. Sound boost beyond the OS max.
    9. Repairs broken video files automatically
    10 .The best out there and one of the first things I install in a new or formatted system.

    Want something to watch movies or tv series or any video you have? Look no further. This is the best out there.
