When it comes to selecting a media player for your PC and laptop, majority of the people would definitely choose VLC media player over any of the other media players available. The reason being, VLC media player can play almost all the media file formats and it is indeed a proven fact.
VLC is certainly a popular video player, thanks to its ease of use and its adaptability. It is an open source program that runs some of the most common video formats, including .flv, the typical format you’ll find on Vimeo and YouTube. You can even use it with some simple modifications to play movies in 3D.
