Appearances aside, VLC’s purpose — and value — is abundantly and immediately clear: It plays video. Any video. It plays all the videos that QuickTime and Windows Media Player can play as well as ones they can’t. It plays videos from virtually any camera. It plays videos from any website. It plays videos from any file-sharing service. It’ll even attempt to play partially downloaded videos, and occasionally succeed. It plays all these videos immediately and without fuss. That traffic cone is magic.
