VLC is beyond doubts the most popular open source, cross-platform media player and multi-media framework written by VideoLAN projects. VLC player is small in size,vlc-logo
just about 17 Mb and immensely powerful! In this post we will explore the player and list 20+ things you can do with VLC player.

1- Run/Install VLC from flash drives
VLC can be installed or run directly from a flash or other external drive. It is light weight and small in size.

2- Portability: Play any DVD on the go, ignoring region coding
For the new bees, I will throw some light on DVD regions. According to Wikipedia there are six different official regions and two informal variations. Any DVD discs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). Any commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not plays discs encoded for a different region. Put it simply;

DVDs manufactured for one region will not play in players made for a different region. Usually to play dvds from other region you often require illegal DVD region spoofing programs. However VLC player is so powerful that it can play DVD's encoded for any region .i.e. it ignores region coding. This feature is so helpful if you are an international traveler and require playing DVD outside the country.

3- Play anything, audio or video!
VLC player can play any common audio formats (OGG, MP3, WAV ,WMA....) and almost all kinds of video file formats, including rare file formats, without installing external codecs. VLC player is an ideal replacement for even ITunes . That is to say you would never get the annoying notifications saying it "your player needs a codec for MP4, FLAC or Raw DV..."! play anything you want!

4- AirTune Streaming
AirTunes is functionality for Apple's Airport Express. This functionalities allows one to play media files on your home stereo speakers. This feature was initially developed to work with iTunes, but now VLC has officially added the support for AirTunes streaming as well.
