VideoLAN is an excellent multimedia player with its own plugins for playing different formats, so it doesn’t need any codecs to be installed. It works great for previewing partially downloaded files too. It can also be used as a server to stream on a (wired or wireless) high-bandwidth IP (Internet Protocol) version 4 or 6 network in multicast or unicast. VLC (VideoLAN Client) is cross-platform and supports Windows, Mac OS X, BeOS, Solaris, Crux Linux, Debian GNU (GNU’s Not Unix) Linux, Familiar Linux, Fedora Core Linux, Gentoo Linux, Mandrake Linux, Red Hat Linux, Slackware Linux, Novell’s SuSE (System und Software Entwicklung = System and software development) Linux, Turbo Linux, NetBSD (Berkeley Software Distribution), OpenBSD, FreeBSD, QNX, Zaurus and Windows CE (Windows Mobile) for Pocket PC.
