Media Monday: VLC Media Player
Welcome to the first of our monthly Media Monday series on The Wired Flyer blog. Once a month we will post something about viewing or usage of media. Today we bring to you information about the VLC media player – a portable, free and open-source, cross-platform way to listen to music and view your favorite movies. Have you ever been given a video or music file that you couldn’t open because it had an unfamiliar extension? What about a DVD that wouldn’t open in your current media player? Chances are, VLC can play it. And if not, VLC can also convert media files into various supported formats. Easy to install and easy to use, the emblematic orange traffic cone icon of VLC is a sign of media savvy.
