Evening everyone,

I wonder if anyone has used or heard about the above mentioned media player?

My wife is wanting to install it to view DVD's. However, I have never heard of it. If anyone has any other preferences please would you let me know.

Thanks as always

Video Lan - it's well known among the Linux and opensource community; an excellent piece of software.

It is my favourite player as it just plays everything more a less without problem. Go for it. You wont look back to WMP.

I agree with all, where WMP as codec issues I've never had any with VLC. In fact WMP hasn't seen light of day on this install yet!
