VLC Media Player Portable is well-known open source software which can play and convert almost any audiovisual format. This version of VLC Media Player is a very complete multimedia player although it has other features and possibilities such as to convert files or to edit videos among others. Besides, what really stands out of this program is the possibility of taking it in your USB Flash Drive and to be able to play your multimedia files anywhere.
This portable version keeps all the features that make this software the most versatile and essential multimedia player for your computer. It is very useful, for example, to play V.O. videos without subtitles. If you have the subtitles in a .srt file, with the same name as the video and in the same folder, VLC Media Player Portable will play them together. It also reproduces a great amount of different video formats (more than just DVD format) such as MPEG-1/2, MPEG-4 ASP, DivX 4/5/6, XviD, 3ivX D4 or WMV 1/2 among others.
As we mention before, you can edit videos including, for example, some free video filters such as cropping, image wall, image distortion or bluescreen. And if you want to take advantage of all its features, you have the possibility of adding audio filters such as equalizer, dynamic range compressor or visualization effects among others. Moreover, the toolbar is completely customizable; you can choose which buttons you need in the interface. Then, everything is clearer and easier.
Which other software can I use?
There are other similar free programs to this one. For example, GOM Player is a very well-known program which uses the most common video formats such as AVI, DVD, MKV or MP4 among others. It has a very easy installation process, so you won’t have any problem when you download this software. What really distinguishes GOM Player from others is the possibility of synchronizing your phone devices with it through a Wi-Fi connection.
If you’re looking for something easier, you can use Media Player Classic, which is a very intuitive program, lightweight and really customizable. You can add what you really need in your toolbar and avoid the rest. It can be used as a DVB player but, in general, it offers few possibilities.
