VLC media player (formerly known as the VideoLAN Client and commonly called VLC) is a free, open-source, cross-platform media player and streaming media server software developed by the VideoLAN project. VLC is available for desktop operating systems and mobile devices such as Android, iOS, and iPadOS.
VLC is also accessible on digital distribution platforms like Apple’s App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft Store. VLC supports a wide range of compression techniques and file types, including DVD-Video, Video CD, and streaming protocols. It can stream media over computer networks and convert multimedia files. The default distribution of VLC includes free decoder and encoder libraries, eliminating the need to seek out/calibrate proprietary plugins.
VLC uses libavcodec from the FFmpeg project for many of its codecs, but its own muxers and demuxers are the ones that predominantly handle its files. Its protocol implementations are also part of the program. The player gained recognition as the first one to play encrypted DVDs on Linux and Mac OS X by using the libdvdcss DVD decryption library; however, this library is not included in many Linux distribution repositories due to its legal issues. It is accessible on iOS as MPLv2.
Wavel is an AI-generated app that allows you to add text to VLC Media videos. It automatically generates captions and subtitles for the VLC Media videos you import. These features ensure it is easier than other speech-to-text software, which makes it a great option for adding text to VLC media clips.
