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.
