VLC media player is one of the most popular media players for PC users that I tend to think should be one of the default programs on the windows platform. VLC’s popularity is due to its ability to support a wide range of video and audio formats. A video file that fails to play on other media players will most likely play on VLC, without any additional tweaks.

 

 

 

Other than support for numerous video files, VLC also has other tools to help you enrich your media experience. Case in point is the media converter. I bet most users do not even know it exists, but it does. This tool is useful in converting video files from one format to another. It can also help you obtain audio from your favourite videos. Here is how:

 

  1. Launch VLC media player on your PC.
  2. Click on the Media tab on the top left corner.
