Play almost all media file types on your mobile device with the VLC media player.

Jumping from app to app simply to watch your favorite videos can be time-consuming as well as frustrating, and that is one of the reasons why the VLC media player has exploded in popularity in recent years. This open-source piece of software plays almost every video file type that is currently on the market, and it is free to download and use.

In addition to playing all of your favorite videos, this app also has some excellent audio tools. You will easily be able to create your own tracks, toy with the equalizer, or even add audio tracks to video clips. VLC has been developed by a team of passionate developers, and new features and updates are constantly being released. You also have the option of diving into the open-source code yourself if you ever want to make any alterations or suggest upgrades.

While VLC isn't as polished as some of the other media players on the market, it is still one of the best pieces of freeware around, and it is only getting better as time goes on.
