• Never Download a Codec Again

    Windows Media Player is a real pain since it will not play DIVX and XVID out of the box, you can get video but no audio or vice versa. There are so many codecs out there, that you end up installing more than you need in order to play most downloaded content, is it really quite annoying. Enter VLC player.

    VLC media player is an open source, free software media player written by the VideoLAN project.  It is one of the most widely used video players on the market, and it amazes me the number of people who still have no idea what it is.  Why people still use WMP is beyond me.  My freetard friend turned me onto it back in 2003 and I have never used anything else since.  VLC takes all the muss and fuss out of watching any video.  After installing the application, most formats will be playable by VLC, all with a small footprint. It is all I use on Linux, Windows and Mac, 1 player all systems.

    Everyone needs to spread the word about VLC and put and end to that Windows Media Player nonsense.
