There is nothing more frustrating than seeing the Windows Media Player error message indicating that the “media format is not supported” in the player. Here’s your FREE solution: VLC Media Player
VLC Media Player is an open source media player and is considered to be one of the world’s best players since it can play almost any audio and video format. This media player’s most outstanding feature is that it brings its own codecs pack which makes it compatible with all media files you may come across. Its interface is very simple and intuitive with easy handling but advanced features such as client-streaming service that lets you send a video signal over the Internet. VLC Media Player also offers the possibility to add/change subtitles and to handle multiple audio tracks. Compared to other players, this is truly the catch-all for playing all content and works on all platforms. Give it a try and feel free to share your thoughts.
