Support for a wide variety of files

Another point worth mentioning is that VLC Media Player is compatible with any multimedia file— from the most popular formats, such as MPEG, DivX, AVI, and MP3, to more specialized formats. VLC Media Player can play Bluray, DVD, or CD without any problems. If you have incomplete or corrupted audio or video files, VLC Media Player will play them back as best it can, something which other tools directly flag as a playback error. Thanks to this compatibility, you can play all types of files without converting them to other formats.

VLC Media Player is a free, open-source tool available for Windows, MacOS and Android platforms. Thanks to its functionality, capacity, and versatility, it is the favorite program of millions of users.
