Download VLC Media Player for Windows PC and Mac
VLC Media Player is a convincing alternative to Windows Media Player and the many other programs. One of the special features of this player is that it does not require the installation of additional codecs to function properly. This principle is undoubtedly an interesting advantage since it is no longer necessary to install many codecs grouped in packs to play a video whose compression format is unknown for a traditional player.
VLC Media Player is able to play the latest and advanced audio and video formats in a completely autonomous way with a much better rendering, thanks to post-processing on the image and the sound of higher quality. VLC Media Player is able to read Mpeg-1, Mpeg-2, Mpeg-4, .MKV, DivX, AAC, MP3, OGG, AVI, WMV, MKV, MOV and many more. But the player’s functions are not limited to the simple playback of multimedia files, since VLC can be used to play DVD Video, VCD, SVCD and some streaming videos files.
VLC Media Player (VLC) by VideoLAN is a multimedia player from the VideoLAN project. This software is multi-platform since it runs on Windows, Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, Solaris, QNX and even Pocket PC trends, in a total of 20 platforms. One of the great advantage of VLC player is that it integrates the codecs needed to play most audio and video formats. In addition, the reader is able to read a large number of network streams.
VLC was initially the client for the VideoLAN project, which was aimed at creating a software allowing the diffusion of videos through a computer network. It was originally developed by the students of the Ecole Centrale Paris and was broadcast for the first time on 1st February 2001 under the GNU GPL license. It is now being developed by contributors around the world. However, the project is coordinated by students of the second and third year.

Another interesting feature is VLC’s ability to use the libcdio library to read .iso files so that the user can play files on a disk image, even if the user’s operating system has not the ability to work directly with .iso files.
