Vlc media player

VLC media player is a freeware portable multimedia player capable of reading most audio and video formats.

Videolan media player supports a lot of video and audio formats such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, DivX, MPEG-1, mp3, ogg, aac, wav ... as well as DVDs, Audio CDs VCDs. The latest version (1.1.0) is the first which enables GPU H264 decoding, making it easier for the CPU to handle HD videos. However, it seems that there is a lot of work to be done on the project because GPU decoding works only with some NVIDIA GPUs and not for all cases. It is difficult for VLC developers to find a way to use GPU drivers properly. This is a complicated task and help from GPU vendors is needed. For these reasons GPU acceleration is disabled by default. The option is in the Preferences window accessible through the Tools menu. We hope that later versions are going to be better, but this first attempt is good enough for now. VLC can also be used to listen radio via internet, supporting a lot of streaming protocols.
