VLC media player 2.0.4

For anyone wanting to play a video or audio file on their computer, VLC media player has to be one of your first choices. It is quite simply the premiere multimedia player recommended by a majority of computer users. It can easily handle an enormous variety of file formats, which is a highly desirable feature when you consider the confusing amount of video and audio file formats that proliferate the internet.

VLC has a wealth of features for the film buff or audiophile and those features are continually being extended and updated. Your movie file will playback from a DVD, avi, mp4, mkv and many other file types. Additionally, VLC Player handles high definition video just as easily as a standard definition file. The many audio files types are supported in both lossless and lossy format so that a flac file will play with the same efficiency as an mp3.

Despite the potential complexity of the application, the interface is simple and the software is fast and responsive. Each type of file starts instantaneously, and has many options associated with the playback. The player will quickly stop, pause, rewind or fast-forward the current file.

Streaming and conversion of media to a network can be a complex task but it's a breeze to setup and implement in VLC Media Player. Stream both unicast and multicast by using either the Streaming/transcoding Wizard or the GUI.

The internal codecs of VLC Media Player ensure playback of all files without the need to resort to downloading extra codec packs. You'll never receive a "this codec is missing." message. It's also designed to be run on a plethora of platforms. It's likely you'll be able to run VLC media player on any distro of Linux, as well as Windows and Mac OSX.

Best of all, VLC media player is a free download. Each time it's opened it can be set to check for the latest version with the newest features.
