How to use it?
VLC is a tool built around a simple interface. To play a video file, for instance, you just need to select it in the “File” menu and then press the Play button on the toolbar. You can pause or stop the playback by clicking on the same button again. To skip to a different point in the video, you can use the slider bar below the screen, which you will find represented by a yellow line. There are also buttons to move backward and forward in time as well as control volume while viewing videos. VideoLAN Client is a video player and with over 1 billion users daily, it can be considered as one of the most successful and high quality video sharing websites today.
It is a great media player which is very easy to use, and you can use it to play almost all types of video files. The only problem that this software has is its size. It has the same size as similar applications like Media Player Classic, VLC Media Player, and countless other media players. Another disadvantage is that you cannot organise files in folders within the file manager when using VideoLAN Client.
