VLC media player Editor's Review

You would certainly like to play music and video files in your computer. In fact, it is a great idea to listen some favorite tracks during the tea break to recharge the exhausted batteries. However, how could you listen to those favorite tracks? You need to have media player software in your computer. Without the media player it is not possible to play any music or video files in the computer. Here, we would discuss about one media player program in detail to find out, whether that is a worthy program to be there in your system or not.

We would discuss about the market leader in media player; that is VLC media player.  There is no doubt in the fact that VLC is the number one media player available under the sun and at the same time, it is most frequently used media player software. This is an open source software and available free to the users. Recently, VLC has launched its BETA version of old VLC media player and we would concentrate on the latest BETA version of the VLC media player.

Like the older versions, this new version of VLC media player is light and free to use. This means, you can download this software for free and that to without paying any fee to anyone. You should have Windows 2000 OS or any latest version of Windows to download the VLC. If you are using Mac or Android OS, then you can’t use it. This is resource hungry software. You should have some big space free on your hard drive to accommodate this media player and at the same time, you would lose some considerable amount of RAM also.

All the previous versions of VLC media player were feature loaded and the BETA version is no different. You would find some advanced features in this all new version of VLCC. First of all, now you could control the playing in a better manner. You can play in ultra slow motion and at the same time, you can experience the songs or video in a supersonic speed. You can record the video or audio streaming.

The most interesting thing about new VLC is, you can customize the tool bar. If you think, one or few buttons are not of your use, then you could kick out those buttons from the tool bar. However, if you don’t like the user interfaces of previous VLC players, then this new one would also disappoint you. You would find the user interface is simple, plain and boring. You can select the buttons to appear on the tool bar, which are of your use. People love to go with VLC media player because it supports most of the audio and video formats available in this planet. The new VLC will support all those files, which were supported by the old VLC versions and along with that the new one would support some fresh formats like AES3, Raw Direct and zipped files. Yes, if you want to listen clearly by playing an audio or video file, in which the voice is week, then you could listen as per your wish by using the amplify option of VLC. However, you may complain about the picture quality. Though, the picture quality of VLC is not at all bad, but it could be certainly better.

You can choose the skin of new VLC media player. It is really easy to choose a suitable skin on new VLC and at the same time you would find that choosing a new skin and set that requires only few seconds. As the VLC is a open source one, so you could find up gradation frequently and this is also an advantage of open source software like VLC media player.

Positive Points:
  -    Can play almost all formats available under the sun.
  -    Extremely easy to use and clean interface.
  -    Can play radio and TV via internet.

Negative Points:
  -    Playlist navigation is not as it should have been.
  -    Cannot play Blu-ray videos.
