VLC is a free, open source video and multimedia player that will work with the vast majority of multimedia file types, from video and audio files like mp4 and mp3, to DVD videos, CDs, and even streaming video protocols.
This program has been a life saver for many Windows users who found that their laptops lost the ability to play DVDs after upgrading to Windows 10. After installing VLC, set it as your default program to open when you insert a DVD, and your movies will start playing automatically again. The multimedia player is also compatible with Linux and Mac operating systems.
The program itself is very small and lightweight while still being a very power media player that uses very few resources while it runs. It has a simple, intuitive interface that makes it quite easy to use. Plus, it has several useful features, like the ability to convert audio and video files. VLC can also be used along with your webcam, can be easily customized with skins and add-ons.
Best of all, it’s completely free. And by “completely free”, we mean it’s also ad-free, with no ad-ware and no user tracking.
