Have you ever tried to watch a video file - only to find out your usual media player program doesn't play it? QuickTime and Windows Media Player come preloaded on most computers, but they don't play every file type.
That means that sometimes those recorded first steps, graduations or weddings just won't play on your computer. I know that it can be irritating, but hang on.
I have the perfect solution for those video woes.
Try VLC player instead. VLC is a free, open-source media player that plays almost every audio and video file format in existence, plus CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray.
It even handles webcams and streaming content, and it can convert media from one format to another. Not only is it powerful, it's lightweight - there isn't an overabundance of flashy features and useless add-ons.
VLC runs fast, and there are no ads, which makes it perfect for any audio or video file you need it to run.
