Many media players are compatible with only a few formats, and users are forced to install several programs if they want to play different types of files. With VLC Media Player, however, you won’t need to do this because this free video player accepts all formats from a wide variety of inputs. In addition to playing many audio and video formats, including Blu-Ray, the latest version can also act as a server to stream both multicast and unicast content in either IPv4 or IPv6. The changes in this new movie player put it ahead of the competition.
