VLC is one of those apps that everyone uses but no one uses it quite well. On the surface it’s a simple app with a blank playing screen and some buttons. But underneath this simple appearance is the pandora’s box waiting to be opened.
VLC is a reliable media player. It also has its life all figured out. It knows what it is and doesn’t pretend to be something else. VLC is not a music player or a media center masquerading as a media player. It’s a media player and a pretty good one at that. You know that no matter how obscure of a media format you throw at it, it’s going to work.
But it can do more. Hidden behind the toolbars, selection items and right-click menus are features that make VLC much more than just a drag-and-drop media player. It is immensely customizable. Everything from the placement of toolbar buttons to plugins to the skin itself. VLC can stream YouTube videos, act as a basic video cutting tool, rip your DVD collection and make your video viewing experience much better.
This ultimate guide to VLC explores it all and helps you become a power user of VLC.
