    When it comes to video files, it seems like nothing is ever as easy as it should be. VLC Media Player offers a one-stop solution, supporting playback of a whole slew of file types, including AVI, OGG, MP2, MP3, MP4, DivX, and DVD. It can even function as a streaming-media server. Its open-source roots mean the program evolves quickly, with new features and fixes released frequently. Though the skinned mode perks up the interface, the program suffers from unpredictable behavior when it's activated. Also, the basic task of opening a file is far more confusing than it should be; the program gives you several options, including the head-scratcher Quick Open File. Overall, though, VLC Media Player earns its place on any computer with its ability to open just about any type of video file.
