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

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.
