    "For years I use the built in media player in Windows till a friend told me about VLC. From the moment I downloaded this free player, I knew I had made a wise decision. You can adjust the color, brightness, player speed, and literally everything else. Want to watch a movie at double speed so you can find out what happens faster, you can. This media player also plays literally every type of video format out there. This is a must have."

    "I have used Windows media player for about 10 years now. It is by far the best software for watching videos and DVD's on windows 10. The player plays many different types of videos, its easy to install and easy to control. There are versions for MAC but I haven't tested it there. Its easy to go full screen and back to windowed mode. The software is the easiest and the least glitchy of all I have tried"

    "I've used this app and it's okay. I do find the download and install of the software quite long. I've tried it across several different computers and networks and still find it slow. The app itself works well. It is slightly bloated and i'm sure there are things they could streamline to make it less bloated as well. The app is offered for windows, and for MAC which makes it slightly versatile in terms of where you can use it. I just think that improvements could be made to the app so it's smaller in size and less bloated. "
