VLC Media Player Download
Downloading the Media Player from VLC is free. You do not need to download additional plugins or codec to play different audio and video files. You can also share the player with the terms and conditions of the General Public License.
VLC Streaming Server
Another advantage of VLC Media Player is its streaming server. With this function, your friends do not need to download the same content all over again. You can watch or listen to your downloaded file using unicast or multicast streams so you can share the file in real-time.
