VLC media player 3.0.8 Free Download



VideoLAN Project, a non-profit organisation, released the VideoLAN Client Media Player in 2001. While allowing people to donate money, VideoLAN Project offers the cross-platform multimedia player to consumers for free.


The media player operates with Windows systems, including Windows Store and Windows Phone. Within Apple platforms, the software is available on MacOS X, iOS, and Apple TV. People can get VLC Media Player on Linux, Android, Chrome, and various other operating systems.


By choosing VLC Media Player as the default program, people can expect the selected files to be opened by the application in the future. Files that can be opened by and defaulted to the media player are AAV, AVI, FLAC, MKV, MOV, MP3, MP4, M2TS, OGG, TS, WV, etc.


Within the video player, there are two rows of menus on the top and on the bottom of the window. Users navigate the media playing experience primarily through the menu on the bottom of the window where the play, rewind, stop, forward, full screen, toggle playlist, loop, and shuffle icons are accessible.


VLC Media Player surpasses media players: Windows Media Player and MX Player. Although Windows Media Player is described as free, consumers need to purchase the Windows software first, unlike the completely free platforms: VLC Media Player and MX Player. Windows Media Player is a proprietary software compared to the open source VLC Media Player framework.


The functionality of the Windows Media Player is better than VLC Media Player in terms of playlist functionality. With features like drag and drop launching, YouTube synchronisation, and AirPlay broadcasting, 5KPlayer is an overall better media player than the VLC, Windows, and MX media players.


VLC Media Player (formerly VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable free multimedia player for various audio and video formats, including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, MP3, and OGG, as well as for DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It also can be used as a server for unicast or multicast streams in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.With a new audio core, hardware decoding and encoding, port to mobile platforms, preparation for Ultra-HD video and special care to support more formats, 2.1 is a major upgrade for VLC 2023.Rincewind has a new rendering pipeline for audio, with better efficiency, volume and device management, to improve VLC audio support.

On the recent days, i was experimenting with guitar tabs software, which lead me to work with Midi files, weird XML files and other stuff. For my surprise, my favorite open source media player VLC was unable to play Midi files by default, so i need to do some extra stuff to make it work.


VLC media player (previously the VideoLAN Client and commonly known as simply VLC) is a free and open-source, portable, cross-platform media player software and streaming media server developed by the VideoLAN project. VLC is available for desktop operating systems and mobile platforms, such as Android, iOS and iPadOS. VLC is also available on digital distribution platforms such as Apple's App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft Store.


The default distribution of VLC includes many free decoding and encoding libraries, avoiding the need for finding/calibrating proprietary plugins. The libavcodec library from the FFmpeg project provides many of VLC's codecs, but the player mainly[15] uses its own muxers and demuxers. It also has its own protocol implementations. It also gained distinction as the first player to support playback of encrypted DVDs on Linux and macOS by using the libdvdcss DVD decryption library; however, this library is legally controversial and is not included in many software repositories of Linux distributions as a result.[16][17] It is available on iOS under the MPLv2.[18]


The VideoLAN software originated as a French academic project in 1996. VLC used to stand for "VideoLAN Client" when VLC was a client of the VideoLAN project. Since VLC is no longer merely a client, that initialism no longer applies.[19][20] It was intended to consist of a client and server to stream videos from satellite dishes across a campus network. Originally developed by students at the École Centrale Paris, it is now developed by contributors worldwide and is coordinated by VideoLAN, a non-profit organization. Rewritten from scratch in 1998, it was released under GNU General Public License on February 1, 2001, with authorization from the headmaster of the École Centrale Paris. The functionality of the server-program, VideoLan Server (VLS), has mostly been subsumed into VLC and has been deprecated.[21] The project name has been changed to VLC media player because there is no longer a client/server infrastructure.


In 2007 the VLC project decided, for license compatibility reasons, not to upgrade to the just-released GPLv3.[23] After 13 years of development, version 1.0.0 of VLC media player was released on July 7, 2009.[24] Work began on VLC for Android in 2010 and it has been available for Android devices on the Google Play store since 2011.[25][26] In September 2010, a company named "Applidium" developed a VLC port for iOS under GPLv2 with the endorsement of the VLC project, which was accepted by Apple for their App Store.[27][28] In January 2011, after VLC developer Rémi Denis-Courmont's complaint to Apple about the licensing conflict between the VLC's GPLv2 and the App store's policies,[29] the VLC had been withdrawn from the Apple App Store by Apple.[30] Subsequently, in October 2011 the VLC authors began to relicense the engine parts of VLC from the GPL-2.0-or-later to the LGPL-2.1-or-later to achieve better license compatibility, for instance with the Apple App Store.[31][32][33][34] In July 2013 the VLC application could be resubmitted to the iOS App Store under the MPL-2.0.[35] Version 2.0.0 of VLC media player was released on February 18, 2012.[12][36] The version for the Windows Store was released on March 13, 2014. Support for Windows RT, Windows Phone and Xbox One were added later.[37] As of 2016[update] VLC is the third in the sourceforge.net overall download count,[38] and there have been more than 3 billion downloads.[39]


The desktop version of VLC media player has some filters that can distort, rotate, split, deinterlace, and mirror videos as well as create display walls or add a logo overlay during playback. It can also output video as ASCII art.


Because VLC is a packet-based media player it plays almost all video content. Even some damaged, incomplete, or unfinished files can be played, such as those still downloading via a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. It also plays m2t MPEG transport streams (.TS) files while they are still being digitized from an HDV camera via a FireWire cable, making it possible to monitor the video as it is being played. The player can also use libcdio to access .iso files so that users can play files on a disk image, even if the user's operating system cannot work directly with .iso images.


VLC supports all audio and video formats supported by libavcodec and libavformat. This means that VLC can play back H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 2 video as well as support FLV or MXF file formats "out of the box" using FFmpeg's libraries. Alternatively, VLC has modules for codecs that are not based on FFmpeg's libraries. VLC is one of the free software DVD players that ignore DVD region coding on RPC-1 firmware drives, making it a region-free player. However, it does not do the same on RPC-2 firmware drives, as in these cases the region coding is enforced by the drive itself, however, it can still brute-force the CSS encryption to play a foreign-region DVD on an RPC-2 drive.


VLC media player can play high-definition recordings of D-VHS tapes duplicated to a computer using .mw-parser-output .monospacedfont-family:monospace,monospaceCapDVHS.exe. This offers another way to archive all D-VHS tapes with the DRM copy freely tag. Using a FireWire connection from cable boxes to computers, VLC can stream live, unencrypted content to a monitor or HDTV. VLC media player can display the playing video as the desktop wallpaper, like Windows DreamScene, by using DirectX, only available on Windows operating systems. VLC media player can record the desktop and save the stream as a file, allowing the user to create screencasts.[60][61][62] On Microsoft Windows, VLC also supports the Direct Media Object (DMO) framework and can thus make use of some third-party DLLs (Dynamic-link library). On most platforms, VLC can tune into and view DVB-C, DVB-T, and DVB-S channels. On macOS the separate EyeTV plugin is required, on Windows it requires the card's BDA Drivers.


VLC media player is cross-platform, with versions for Windows, Android, ChromeOS, BeOS, Windows Phone, iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, OS/2, Linux, and Syllable.[67] However, forward and backward compatibility between versions of VLC media player and different versions of OSes are not maintained over more than a few generations.[68] 64-bit builds are available for 64-bit Windows, starting with version 2.0.1.[69][70] 041b061a72
