Plays absolutely any video both in Win and Linux. Only problem - setting preferences manually after installing to play videos in different windows.
This software is more like a virus than anything. It used to be good many years ago.
I have it installed on Mint 20 Cinnamon and it works great. I am able to play all the video formats that I need it to.
After opening one video file, I must kill the process in System Monitor before opening another video file.
Big problem. It was working without any problem untill today. I changed nothing.
Works on LMDE4 32bit fine using 5.1 sound dvd/video/music and composite and sVideo capture with v4l-utils on a philips saa7174 tv card
One of the best.
Best video player ever, I love the codecs.
everytime i open vlc it freezes my laptop to death...tried several times but always does the same.....very annoying
As an answer to user grocik: Look at this solution, described here. Worked fine for me: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1102626/turn-off-language-localization-on-vlc-player-in-kubuntu
My goto app for viewing vidoes. Now using it for audio files since moving from Windows
Perfectly works on LinuxMint 20 BETA xfce.
The go to multimedia player that never lets me down. No frills but it works.
Okay, Im one say it, it's a great player, but has a well known issue, when you play from the file manager, and close vlc and click another video it just wont show up, you would need first to kill all vlc processes in the background to be able to play the video, it happens so often that it becomes pretty annoying, the media player is really nice and compatible with most codecs, but that little issue is a deal breaker to most people and distros, is not the fault of mint dev's, I had the same issue with ALL of the distros I've used :T
Этому плееру трудно найти полноценную замену на Линуксе, не хватает только поддержки скинов :(
I love the way this installed! I have never seen that before. I need to look around here to find more packages like this. If it handled subtitles like SMPlayer I would give it a 5.
Nice and easy!
