VLC is one of the most popular, free, open-source, and cross-platform media players available today. It has a framework that can play almost all kinds of multimedia files on top of DVDs, CDs, Audio, VCDs, and many others. What is so good about VLC is the fact that it is available for every device one can think of, be it Windows, Mac, Android, or iPhone, VLC runs on every popular operating system that is available today. And there are some links where you can download and enjoy VLC 64 bit on your computer.
VLC supports a large variety of content. It can play videos, even if they are damaged, unfinished or incomplete, such as files that are still downloading from a peer to peer (P2P) network. It also plays m2t MPEG transport streams (.TS) files while they are still in the process of being digitized from an HDV camera via a FireWire cable, which makes it possible to monitor the video while it is being played. It can also use libcdio to access .iso files so that users can play files on a disk image, even when the user's operating system cannot work directly with .iso images.
VLC supports all audio and video formats supported by libavcodec and libavformat. This means that VLC can playback H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 2 video as well as support FLV or MXF file formats "out of the box" using FFmpeg's libraries. Alternatively, VLC has modules for codecs that are not based on FFmpeg's libraries. It is also one of the free software DVD players that ignore DVD region coding on RPC-1 firmware drives, making it a region-free player. However, it does not do the same on RPC-2 firmware drives, as in these cases, the drive itself enforces the region coding. However, it can still brute-force the CSS encryption to play a foreign-region DVD on an RPC-2 drive. The VLC media player has some filters that can distort, rotate, split, de-interlace, and mirror videos as well as create display walls or add a logo overlay. It can also output video as ASCII art.

VLC 64 bit media player has a modular design, and that makes it superbly user friendly. It has more than 380 modules, all because of its modular design, which makes it easier to include a large number of modules/plugins for new file formats, codecs, or various streaming methods. In fact, it creates its own graph of modules dynamically, depending on the situation and based on input protocol, codec, file format, video card capabilities, and many other similar parameters.
Since almost everything in VLC is a module, VLC's core can launch one, many, or no interfaces at all. This makes its interface highly adaptable and customizable. In fact, using the skins2 interface, VLC actually supports a large variety of external skins as well, including the ones for Winamp 2 and XMMS. Overall, quality-wise, VLC stays unmatched and top-notch as compared to its competitors.
