I use VLC Player a lot by using it to watch WWE Raw and Smackdown files that I downloaded on weekly basis from some of the torrent sites ( Check my earlier post of How To Download Movie From Internet ) and another great thing about VLC Player is it can playback DVD too.Sometimes I do use it to playback Mp3's because the audio quality this player can produce is good. You can download VLC Player at http://www.videolan.org/ Here's some additional informations about VLC Player.
VLC media player 0.8.6c
- It is a free cross-platform media player
- It supports a large number of multimedia formats, without the need for additional codecs
- It can also be used as a streaming server, with extended features (video on demand, on the fly transcoding, ...)
Overview of the VideoLAN streaming solution
The VideoLAN streaming solution includes two programs:
- VLC media player which can be used as a server and as a client to stream and receive network streams. VLC is able to stream all that it can read.
- VLS (VideoLAN Server), which can stream MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 files, DVDs, digital satellite channels, digital terrestial television channels and live videos on the network in unicast or multicast. Most of the VLS functionality can now be found VLC. Usage of VLC instead of VLS is advised.
