What I like in VLC media player
1. The best thing I like about VLC is that you can increase sound upto 400 % in VLC.This feature is not present in most of the media player. Me and my friends have made use of this feature a lot while watching movies in hostel on laptop without speakers.
2.VLC has a number of shortcuts available which saves time and makes it easy to use.For example there are keyboard shortcuts to increase sound or to forward the movies in VLC player.These shorcuts have always helped me to save my time.
3.It comes with all options like forwardfast forwardbackwardfast backward which proved helpful to me a lot.
4.I was also influenced by number of zoom options are available in VLC player.
5.You can set a video played in VLC as the wallpaper on your desktop.To use this feature go to video in VLC at top and select wallpaper.
