1 VLC Media Player www.videolan.org/
VLC Media Player is a name that crops up time and time and time again when talk turns to free video players. And with good reason – it’s simply incredible.
Out of the box, this is an impressively powerful program that supports everything from 360-degree video to 8K formats, and it can be used to play local files, contents on a network, online video, DVDs and more.
There are advanced controls for tweaking the look and sound of videos so you can get the best possible experience whether you’re watch on a laptop, streaming to a TV, or projecting onto your living room wall.
Should you find that VLC isn’t quite feature-packed enough for you, extensions can be used to expand its capabilities. The app can seem intimidating to start with, but scratch through the tough exterior and you’ll find a soft, friendly, accessible centre.
VLC offers everything you could need from a media player.
