4 of the Most Underrated Features in the free VLC Video Player

VideoLAN Player (known commonly as VLC or VLC Player) has been around for many years and has seen widespread use on both Linux and Windows because of its insane amount of versatility and comprehensive set of features that many other video players failed to deliver. Linux users saw it as the Holy Grail of video playback (to the point of it being included as a pre-installed application in Linux Mint and other distributions), while Windows users saw it as a great replacement for the clunky, lopsided, and resource-hungry Windows Media Player.

And just when you thought you couldn’t love VLC any more than you already do, there are a number of underrated but powerful features that will be just enough to push you over that line. Some of them have already been mentioned here, such as the ability to convert video files and rip DVDs or even play YouTube videos. There are a few more hidden gems, though, that really demonstrate just how amazing VLC is, including a feature that came out in late 2016.
