Why VLC?

While other media players only play media in their own formats, VLC plays almost any file. VLC is designed to be widely compatible.

VLC plays:

Imagine never having your media player tell you it cannot play a file. Imagine never having to go looking for the right codec to play your video. That’s why VLC.

VLC is so good at playing media that it can even play broken or incomplete files.

Either ability, being able to play broken and incomplete files or being able to play all video and audio file formats, would be enough to make VLC stand out, but VLC does both!
