What we like about VLC, is that it will play anything, in any video or audio format you can throw at it.

To install VLC, just go to Menu–> Software Manager and search for VLC. Then select VLC and click Install

After installation, it’s a good idea to launch it from your Sound & Video menu and set your preferences. There are lots of them, so just click through the preferences menu to select how you want the software to behave.

Tomorrow, we’ll look at how to really take advantage of VLC with some Python tools.
