First Look video: VLC media player

This free media player is a long-time favorite for many users and it's easy to see why. Boasting support for several popular and even some obscure file types, VLC Media Player is the go-to program when your regular player refuses to comply.

Got a file that won't play in Quicktime? Maybe you have a short clip you found on the Web that Windows Media Player won't have anything to do with. Whatever your media-related issue is, VLC media player for both Windows and Mac usually has the solution. With support for several common (and not so common) media file types, it's no wonder this player remains a user favorite.
