VLC Media Player is an Open Source and totally characteristic media player, the 'Preferences' panel is so long that you require rather much time in order to nice tune all setting, i could determine there all I require from a media player.
The port is not that user friendly science of the better number of choice, only the main chocie are present from the main window.
The actual power of this player is the fact that it can be utilize as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high bandwidth meshwork, you can to stream video documents but in order to do this you require a brawny CPU such as the new Intel Core Duo in order to affirms the encryption wants of the stream server.
It can play various documents formats such as MPEG1, MPEG2 and MPEG4, lending the MPEG4 sets such as DivX, XviD, etc. and audio file formats such as mp3, ogg, etc, i like the concept that it won't revision the ID3 tag of the mp3 documents in the way iTunes does, few individual guess about this just like me and they won't like to get their files changes by the audio/video player.
The total characteristics list and the compatibility list among the affirms running systems is rather wide so I suggest you to contact the producer's link in order to see if a characteristic that you require is on that list, backside this minimum port you get an impossible player.
