Multimedia, AV After an 8 year long development process, the team behind the VLC Media Player has released version 1.0.0 of their popular and capable media player. Even though previous versions weren't necessarily unstable, reaching version 1.0 is still somewhat of a milestone.

I use it as my sole A/V player for OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and Windows. I do not use Linux at all, that is why I don't mention VLC for Linux. It is a beaut, and I really like it's network functionality. I also use it as a test that any media file that can not play properly in VLC, I get rid of. Since it is capable of playing .wmv, .wma, .qt, if a file can only work with Wedia Media Player, then I erase it, because I know you can get viruses from files you download, and if it only plays in WMP, and VLC can not read the file, then I am suspicious it a trojan or virus. But yeah it is a great program, it is always one of the first programs I get from ports every time.
