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

This app needs no commentary, but that it's written in QT and Mint is GTK

Az általános videólejátszóm. Szinte bármit le tud játszani, és ha véletlenül találnál valamit ami mégse menne, jó eséllyel van egy plugin amivel már menni fog.

Minor problem with in Mint Cinnamon 20.1, if you close a window via the 'title bar close button' the window will not close and the app hangs. Kill the process in the system monitor works, or use Ctrl-Q or the 'Quit' command in the 'Media' menu.

Used to be my favorite player for 15 years. Unfortunately, it has fallen behind in many ways. Hundreds of bugs have been plaguing it the last years. Moreover, it NEVER had decent subtitle finding capabilities. VLC relies on a shitty plugin called VLSub which is ABANDONWARE - has been in beta version since forever. The buggy thing constantly crashes, taking the player or the entire system with it. It's incredible that nobody has come up with a better solution for poor VLC all these years, given that multimedia players for windows like bsplayer just find the subtitle for you just in mere seconds just by opening the media file, since at least a decade now. No subtitle finding capabilities is a deal breaker for me. Not everyone is a native english speaker. More problems: Codec x265 HEVC does not play reliably but crashes often. But even with other videos types, player crashes randomly, a steady behavior through the years. Latest version 3.0.9 has a new feature, it now freezes in the system tray (what's it even doing in the tray? -I can't recall previous versions being there). Generally, VLC is getting worse and worse with every version. Someone needs to work on this player seriously. For the first time since the last 15 years, I no longer use it as my primary video player. Fortunately, the lowly SMPlayer has saved the day for me. Give it a try, it deserves it. I did, and never looked back.

X265, HEVC codecs not supported. shows the video with damaged frames.(Note: For those whom vlc not quitting and remains in the tray, use xkill command to kill it, easiest way)
