Saturday Fun – Video Lan Player (VLC)

I love movies, especially foreign films. In browsing some of the more obscure video stores around Montreal I’ve discovered a few DVD’s imported from Europe that are the wrong region. Rather than spending some additional money for a region free DVD player, I just used VLC on my laptop, a free video player for Windows, Mac, Linux and just about every operating system that is capable of playing video (including Windows Mobile 4 and 5). VLC plays a huge number of different encoding schemes for video, including Divx, Xvid, and WMV

VLC is very easy to use, however it is capable of some very interesting tricks, including streaming and multicasting video. Give it a try, watch a few DVD’s and try out some of the advanced features.
