VLC Media Player is probably the best multimedia player opensource software. I is a software for watching favorite videos / listening audios. I can say this is a great freeware, not only because it is free to download VLC media player but more than that, unlike any ordinary multimedia player, this freeware offers some great features that you’ll never find in other media player software, even in the commercial ones. VLC is an open source software, available for various OS including Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
