VLC Media Player 0.9

Playing video files of different types is a problem for the generic Windows Media Player. You need different codec to play files such as .avi files which are converted using XViD or DiVX or any other such type of encoders. So VLC Media Player (VideoLAN) is one of the best players that I came across.

The best part of the VLC Media player is that it can play all type of multimedia files including audios and videos (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, Matroska .MKV, etc.). It can play VCDs, DVDs and also streaming media over the Internet or Intranet lan network. You can use it as a streaming server also and use VLC media player to stream a movie or video in unicast or multicast mode over IPv4 or IPv6 networks. The only media file that it cannot play is the REAL MEDIA files. I wonder when they are going to include the codec for RM in this player.
