Versatile media player that can play about anything you throw at it.
It can crash on some occasion though with mkv files containing subtitles.

But its free. :)

While it has generally functioned well I have been having one very major issue with this version. Randomly the picture freezes and say 5 - 6 second segment of the audio stream goes into infinite loop. At this point I even have hard time in killing the application. The same video file plays flawlessly in version 2.0.7.

I wonder if it is just me - with sub-par original Intel hardware - or something is the matter with this version !

I tried both versions 2.1.5 and 2.2.0RC2 (x64) and Audio garbles. Video OK. Tried install 2.1.4 over this, no can do. So, I uninstalled via Microsoft Add/Remove and decided to go with 2.1.3 since I saw "roma_turok" comment below. BTW, when I try to play a Movie with VLC, it does not show the video clearly right off the back. After few seconds that movie is playing then picture becomes clear.

VLC Media Player 2.1.5 crashes while opening any video but it was same in 2.1.4 version also. But 2.1.3 version is working fine. Please fix this bug.

VLC is the best I've ever used and I'm still learning what it can do. Seems nothing is out of bounds for this. Even use it for general transcoding, cutting, etc.

Plays everything still. Not well but it will play the files. It's gotten slower and buggier. They now hide the options in a basic mode. This is never a good sign either there are too many options or the interface is bad so just hide part of it rather then fix it. In this case it's both.
In any case you will need to mess with all of the settings anyway to get useful video output. Now the video output when using H.264 in MKV and MP4 has periods of blockyness. For a program that just uses the already the open source codecs I wounder how they screw up this bad.
It's just a media player and it doesn't work out of the box what are they thinking. This is the perfect example of bloat and decay killing a useful software product.

For years I had used VLC but after migrating to MPC-HC/PotPlayer+LAV+MadVR, I wonder if its worth updating to new version and use it? Its best for those that don't want codec installation mess and just want their video to play as is. But without any greater manual tweaking functionality it is not better to my opinion. But still it is good to have in the system as it can play most files which may fail otherwise in other players with external codecs! Plus SubtitleEdit needs VLC to draw the waveform which is essential sometimes.

It is one of the most backward player what I've ever seen.

Manual options close to 0

HW acceleration have many problems.

It use only TV color range only: 16-235 instead of 0-255 full color range, which causes problems in camcrder videos. (camcorder videos can work 0-255 range which is bigger than the color range (16-235) of DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-ray and Broadcast TV MPEG2 etc...

Backward player with few manual options and HW acceleration problems.

It is the player of the mid 2000s rather than a modern player in 2012.

VLC has always been slow but it got worse. 1.0 would play 1080P .mp4 on my laptop without issues now it skips and has visual glitches. Also the bookmark feature has disappeared. Still plays almost every format. I have not tested for the dvd playing issues or the color of subtitles in .mkv that I have had in the past.

I'm a big fan of VLC player, however, the new version has some serious bugs. I tried to open a folder of .flv files. While browsing through the folder, the program would lock up. When I closed the program, and tried again, the same problem. Eventually my whole computer locked up. I went to task manager, and although no applications were running, under "processes" there were a couple of vlc player processes working simultaneously. Once I ended those processes, things returned to normal. I tried it again with the same bugs. I then deleted 2.00 and returned to version 1.11 and everything worked normally. I hope the bug is worked out. I scored the "functionality" and "overall" score very low, however, the old version 1.11 would get high scores. A fix with a "2.01" version would make me a happy camper.

Was great until v. 1.0. Then started crashing like crazy. On v. 2.0 now and it still crashes regularly. A long time and still no fix in site. No other player crashes with this frequency on my W7 machine. Pretty much if I touch it while a video is playing, it goes away.

I really WANT to like this program. And 2.0 is nicer. The interface and sub handling are definitely better.

But ...

I played an unencoded rip of one of my DVDs. It still doesn't play it smoothly. Version 1.05 or whatever will, but the streaming is no longer secure.

I tried some files that play fine in SMPlayer and didn't in the previous VLC. They don't in 2.0 either.

There still doesn't seem to be any ASIO/Wasapi support. Come on people. If it had that I'd definitely use it as an audio player. Or if I were running Linux or Mac OS. They don't have that nasty habit Windows has of always wanting to resample audio.

I wish SMPlayer had an interface as good as this does. It's more like older versions of VLC.

But it still plays a wider variety of videos better, and the video filters are still MUCH better.

I don't dislike VLC enough to bother uninstalling it but I don't think I`ll be using it any more often than the previous version. Which is, increasingly, not much.

Xvids and ISOs (and everything else) work fine under VLC 2.0.0 for me. Check your system before you starting blaming the software. Love this app!

Looks like V2 is a work in progress. Doesn't decode Xvid video stream, but audio is okay. Some ISO files don't start when dragged to the interface. So far no problems with Matroska. No crashes.

Mac version 2.0.0 on Snow Leo (10.6.8) - no problems. Still doesn't do a good job of transcoding videos but there are many other tools that do that quite well (like Handbrake, MP4Tools, Submerge, QT Pro Player).

One major flaw: Name of video in playlist window seems to be taken from metadata so, if you're comparing two different videos (let's say, one named MyVideo.AVI and another named MyVideo.MP4 in the filesystem), their names in the playlist will be identical if their metadata names are identical. You will, therefore, need to keep the "Media Information" window open so you can click and drag on the "Location" field so you can see the actual file name. PITA.

Solution: Provide a preference that permits display of the filename instead of the metadata name in the Playlist.

Clicking on most video files crashes it. Starts playing after clicking on it again (sometimes repeatedly). Once it starts playing, there is no problem. This is the installed version. Downloaded standalone version. Will try and report.

Compared to my old favorite MPC-HC, and the new PotPlayer, I now prefer good ol' VLC because:

- It supports playing Windows Media Center recordings (.wtv) properly, including those flagged as "protected" (PotPlayer plays my digital tuner recordings with the audio out of sync; MPC-HC can't play "protected" recordings).

- It can properly play all formats faster when want to (MPC-HC can't play .wtv faster, e.g.).

- It time-stretches the audio properly when playing faster (PotPlayer causes a kind of reverb effect; MPC-HC still has no time-stretch at all).

Other than the above, all the other handy features are cool. I did run into some quirkages, though:

- For some reason, the playback speed setting default became 0.90x instead of 1.00x. I found how to fix it, though, by going into the "vlcrc" settings file and changing it there.

- If "post processing" is activated, it seems to cancel out deinterlacing. I was wondering why the picture quality seemed especially bad on some files, so I dug around and found disabling the post-processing filter actually improved things.

And will there every by a 64-bit version?!

Thanks for the tip, but there's a bit more to this.

First of all, there's been a bit of discussion on the Kaspersky forum indicating you're correct in saying it's a false positive. ... try1623021

However, one of the posters there pointed out that on the VLC site itself, there are some indications that the download really is infected:

Why / How are you 100% sure that it's a false positive? 0

Oh, and as for "freaking out", as the saying goes, "only the paranoid survive". ;-)

Anyway, thanks very much for your input and have a nice weekend.

I downloaded the latest version from Source Forge and installed it on my XP SP3 IBM machine. Then my anti-virus program, Kaspersky Internet Security, detected a Trojan in it and said a "special procedure" was needed to eradicate it.

The "special procedure" completely screwed up my machine. Fortunately I was able to find a Restore Point that got the machine working again, but I had to uninstall and re-install Kaspersky.

I know there's apparently a security problem in VLC 1.1.7 (, but I think I'm going to wait awhile before re-installing the new VLC.

Too bad. It's a great viewer.
