    There was a time where I had trouble opening some video and audio formats. Then there was VLC and all that was over. Seriously, nothing beats this program. I’d never buy video/audio playback software as long as VLC is still available. Been using it for years and have never encountered an error where it can’t read an audio or video file. Sometimes I wonder why its free cause it’s just that good! Hope windows or google doesn’t buy it and then starts charging customers to buy this. That’s usually how it goes with great free software. A major market name goes buys it and boom, it ain’t free anymore.
