VLC (or VideoLAN Client) media player is a lightweight application created by an open-source development group known as the VideoLAN project. This video and media player has been leading the industry for years in terms of popularity, and it’s not hard to see why. You can use a VLC media player to open audio and video files in just about any format without having to hunt down extra codecs. VLC also works for streaming media such as podcasts and online radio stations. But perhaps the greatest VLC media player feature is playback control.
