What is VLC Player
VLC media player (commonly known as just VLC) is a Free and open source media player and streaming media server developed by the VideoLAN project. VLC is available for desktop operating systems and mobile platforms, such as Android, IOS, Windows phone and more. VLC is also available on digital distribution platforms such as Google Play Store, Apple Store and the Microsoft Store.
