VLC Media Player (VLC) is a portable media player with cross-platform and streaming media capabilities. It evolved from the VideoLAN project and functions on all desktop operating systems. VLC works on mobile platforms as well. It is a simple app, available in Apple’s app store, from Google Play and in the Windows Store.
The original VLC media player came to be from the VideoLAN academic project, started in 1996. It was designed to stream video from satellite dishes across a campus wide network at École Centrale Paris. After it was rewritten from scratch in 1998, it received the blessing from the École Centrale Paris headmaster, which prompted its GNU license application and subsequent public release in 2001.
Even though it is still the same client to server video streaming software, it has materialized into worldwide distribution by the non-profit organization VideoLAN. The name was ultimately changed from VideoLAN to the current VLC Media Player. Interestingly, the traffic cone icon is still used. It’s representative of the old traffic cones collected by the École Centrale Paris Networking Students’ Association, and although graphically enhanced, still is used today.
VLC is an open source media player and it’s free. It allows users to stream and play any of the endless arrays of media format. Users can download the media play by navigating to VideoLAN.org. Installation is fast and simple.
The VLC Media Player uses possibly the most innovative and user-friendly interface of all available media players. There is a Wiki step-by-step guide so users don’t have to seek out answers to simple questions. VideoLAN’s original objective was to create a media player that was accessible to all user levels from the novice to the experienced video creator. It is a hassle free way to stream video material in all formats and best of all; it’s free.
