multimedia player and streamer
  20 reviews

VLC is the VideoLAN project's media player. It plays MPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, WebM, FLAC, MP3, Ogg/Vorbis files, DVDs, VCDs, podcasts, and multimedia streams from various network sources.

VLC can also be used as a streaming server that duplicates the stream it reads and multicasts them through the network to other clients, or serves them through HTTP.

VLC has support for on-the-fly transcoding of audio and video formats, either for broadcasting purposes or for movie format transformations. Support for most output methods is provided by this package, but features can be added by installing additional plugins: * vlc-plugin-access-extra * vlc-plugin-fluidsynth * vlc-plugin-jack * vlc-plugin-notify * vlc-plugin-samba * vlc-plugin-skins2 * vlc-plugin-svg * vlc-plugin-video-splitter * vlc-plugin-visualization

In Windows it was my preferred video player. But in Linux Mint it open up another window with the video. So the video isn't playing inside the standard VLC window or what you might call it. It seems like many other people have the same problem but no solution. EDIT: When I installed is from Flathub/Flatpack it worked fine!

i think vlc is perfect for anyone who likes to play videos and music, i wish vlc was a default application in linux mint. I believe many will approve of this.

May have to adjust the output method. I found that one of my DVDs VLC would play the audio but not video. The fix is easy change the the output method as opposed to using the Automatic setting. Goto tools, then select preferences, than select Video and then Output. I found that either X11 or XVideo works well.

Szybki, niezawodny, kompatybilny. Program, który odtworzy prawie wszystko, co na niego rzucisz. Po roku nie trafił się nawet jeden crash. Jeżeli kojarzysz go z Windowsa - wiesz, co Cię czeka. Cinnamon 20.3 Uma

Después de tantos años en activo... ¡sigue siendo el mejor! Inigualable: se lo traga todo, e incluye de serie complemento para buscar/descargar subtitulos.

es de lo mejor, ademas cuenta con multifunciones, como convertir videos o transmitir videos en vivo. (It is the best, it also has multifunctions, such as converting videos or broadcasting live videos.)
