I know most things good are not free, exception for the vlc media player.. I just realized how cool this media player is, hell, I would gladly pay a some bucks for it in comparison to some of the other expensive 3rd party media products..

Just wanna say thanks for a Great Product VLC! This rocks!.. Look out WinAmp and Nero Media!

This is undoubtedly the best media player I've ever used. I use it both under Linux and Windows, and it's great! The "portable" version (which does not require any installation under Win) is very good too. Rated 10/10

User interface still unstable
While it is a welcome change that VLC finally has an interface in full screen mode, the interface is unstable and disappears after a few times of use, requiring you to re-install the program.

It shows it's geeky roots that you are expected to walk over to the keyboard to press keys to control the video when watching it on your big screen TV.

Other rough edges still exist like not remembering the aspect ratio of your TV from session to session, the window closing when the file is finished and the player not waiting until the first frame is rendered are still quite distracting.

Once the rendering stabilizes though, this player renders a larger variety of formats better than any other player.

Re: thank you
I agree. compact and fast to open. does not consume much memory like other players.

Good Job Done

Great little player
Out of shear frustration from the more well known players I went looking for something better. WOW! I found it in a nice little pkg that opens in a flash and plays everything I want it to.

VLC Media Player (Subtitle)
I support VLC Media Player than any other media player because VLC accept subtitles. Most media player does not accept subtitles. I'm deaf myself, and I must have subtitle on every movies, so, My friend recommend me to use VLC media player and I loved it.

I absolutely love this program! Not only does it handle the FLV files I was looking to play it let me play my international DVD's as well as my domestic DVD's

great stuff
I found that vlc was able to handle a wmv stream that kaffeine and mplayer both had trouble with (all standard debian installs). Nice job with a feature-rich piece of software...
