    It's multi-platform, free and open source.

    It's very simple to use with no fancy or bloated interfaces yet it has a lot of options for all my needs when using it on the PC and it works perfectly out of the box on other systems too even for playing videos over the network.

    Rewarded that this software can read all types of files or almost. While that has always given me problems, unlike Potplayer. VLC cannot read all types of video files. Either they don't work or they freeze every few seconds. So it is unwatchable.
