Best video player out there for FREE. Always will be free. Works on nearly every OS. For encrypted DVDs simply find a copy of the LIBDVDCSS.dll for your OS,install it to the home directory (windows, copy, MAC: (NFI how to install as there are OS security issues to avoid).

I haven't used any other video player in over 15 years.


Review by Dave m on Jul 1, 2018 Version: 3.0.0 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




Before updating to 3.0.2, vlc 2.2.7 worked perfectly with any thing I tried. After updating 10 vlc 3.0.2 related packages, noting was working. VLC player wouldn't start at all. Spent 8+ hours to remove new version packages and manually install back 2.2.7-1 (amd64) packages, VLC 2.2.7 was finally back and working again.
