VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD, VCD, and various streaming protocols. VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player that supports various audio and video formats (MPEG-4, MPEG-2, MPEG-1, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

The default interface is still a stripped down player that belies VLC's functionality and features. Skinning can fix that quickly, but behavior can still be a bit unpredictable depending on the quality of the skin. VLC's open-source foundation and community ensures that it evolves quickly and often, with new features and fixes released frequently. 
Version 2.1.0 RC1

This is a major version, totally more than 7000 commits, improving a lot
most parts of VLC and fixing the important issues of the 2.0.x branch

Highlights:

 - Port of the VLC engine to Mobile OS, including Android, iOS (again), WinRT.
   This denotes new audio and video outputs, OpenGL ES improvements,
   including shaders; but also work on the hardware decoding for mobile.

 - A new audio core, including rewrite of most audio output modules.
   This improves the stability, reactivity (no more volume change lag),
   volume control (logarithmic), performance, precision (up to 384kHz).

 - An important work on correct playback of new formats and old non-standard
   files, fixing most of the small regressions on rare formats that
   we've seen in the 2.0.x branch.
   New codecs have been added, including G2M4, MSS1/2, SCTE-27, Real
   Lossless or Ulead DV Audio

 - New protocols and input support have been added like Smooth Streaming,
   improved MPEG-DASH, improved Blu-Ray; but also a new VNC support
   and an AVCapture module for OSX.

 - Hardware decoders (Mac OS X, Android) and encoders (Intel QuickSync
   Video) were also added in this release, to focus on performance.

 - The OS X interface has seen a lot of polishing and fixes, which
   finishes the work started in 2.0.0 to renew the interface.

 - For developers, libVLC and most libVLC modules are now licensed under
   the LGPL, a copyleft license that should allow more flexibility for
   application developers.

 - For web developers, the webplugin has been partially rewritten and
   now support windowless, allowing CSS transform like 3D and overlaying
   objects above the video, like Flash does.

 - Many other issues fixed that I forget about.
