Post by: Software Santa on January 02, 2007, 08:38:52 PM
VideoLAN - VLC media player is a universal media player!  Truly a "Universal" Player: ANCIENT Codec's from DECADES Long Past (Like "Indio Video" Codec ... which I think my Grandpa was still using ... on his hand cranked laptop) are still supported here!!!! This is an Excellent CD and DVD Player! There is an Internet Radio, and Fantastic Visualizations, built in, TOO!

👍🏽 A Software Santa Pick! 👍🏽

Now for Mobile Devices: VLC is a universal media player for iOS 9 devices or Android 2.3 devices, and up (https://softwaresanta.com/sssmf/index.php/topic,5553.0.html)
