Have you ever had a video that wouldn’t play no matter what you did? Ah yes, Windows Media player in all of its carnations often just doesn’t cut it. If it can play your video, it likely needs a codec and they are a major pain to install.
Enter VLC Media Player. I have never come across a media file VLC couldn’t play.
VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.
Don’t waste time tring to find software to play that misbehaving video file. If VLC won’t play it, it’s possible nothing will.
