“Only thing worse than watching a bad movie is being in one” Elvis Presley
Let's say a friend sends you a video and you get it on the computer. Now you try to play it but it keeps saying that file is not recognized or it just doesn't seem to play. One program many turn to is VLC. It can play MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, as well as DVDs, and VCDs. Now if some of these are foreign to you, don't pay any attention to them but know this: if it is video, VLC most likely plays it. If it does not automatically work, you may have to right click on the file and choose open with and then click VLC. Now to download choose either PC or Mac. Once this is installed you will be able to watch all sorts of great media. Many times I rent a DVD from the library and pop it in and watch it using VLC. This is really one of the programs to put on a computer right away. Give it a try!
