    "The best thing about VLC media player is that it's free. The second best thing about it is that it's the best video player available for Windows. I've never found a video it couldn't play."

    "Good for video playing on windows but any things as far as editing and use on other format is not helpful at all. A little heavy handed on the ads. Developers are good at communicating so I have hopes that this may improve, for now it is a one trick pony."
