VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It is the most chad media player to exist and anyone who says otherwise (especially people who are named TJ) are very wrong.

The little orange traffic cone that could.

Created in 2001 by VideoLAN, a non-profit organization, VLC is probably one of the best programs to ever exist and never fails to deliver. Because of its wide support for all types of media files and codecs, it is always reliable no matter what you throw at it. It offers much snappier performance than the default video player on Windows, especially for high-bitrate files. And the best part is that it's free and open-source.

VLC is like a long-time friend that you can always trust and depend on. Long live VLC.
VLC media player is the most wholesome software ever. Every time I see that orange traffic cone pop up after the video ends, I feel right at home.

the worst, most backwards media player ever compiled. Plays limited number of music formats (mainly used for windows shitty windows media files), uses an excessive amount of memory, has no good plug-ins, all plug-ins have to be bought and cost way the hell to much, and it can't even rip cd's to mp3 and doesn't even support mp4's like all its competitors (winamp, iTines, quicktime and real player). Basically another tool for microsoft to control most of the market share of everything. If you use windows media player, do yourself a favor and kill yourself or download winamp.
Windows Media Player sucks!

A very bad media player in comparison to others like winamp. Has the tendancy to miss the first two seconds of an audio file. It has a very complicated layout and large window size making a simple task like playing an audio file a chore. Ripping music is almost pointless due to this. on the plus side WMP opens faster than its competitors allowing you to play a file almost instantainiously. WMP also suffers from its horrid lack of plug-ins and the windows web sites don't even supply them for download.
Argh. I just wanted to play my movie but Windows Media Player doesn't support the plug-in.

Stupid program that will play DVD's for some people but not for others. Completely illogical and impossible to use. Really pointless
"why the hell won't Windows media player play this DVD? It worked on my computer but not on this one."
