User interface looks and feels old but the player itself is great, plays most videos out of the box, has many useful features and so on
VLC player still the best player for me.
Vlc can't even fullfill basic smart things like autoloading subtitles like bsplayer. Default audio&video renderer is always poor. Potplayer is better than this but it can't successfully autoload subtitles either.
VLC media is a standard-setter for cross-platform, open-source, reliable, dependable, configurable media players. No doubt.
Except one tiny thing: Recently... VLC has gotten slow. Slow on Mac, slow on Linux, and... a little (not much) on Windows. (At least Windows 10.)
VLC deserves respect of a kind very few apps do. It's free, open source AND... at the time of writing (5th March 2017) it's beating Dropbox (nasty sh*t that that is - and it is, trust me!) as the most popular app for Windows on this site. That takes some doing. It really does.
But... here's the thing...: If ultimate customizability isn't so important to you, try MPV. Like VLC, MPV is open source, free and all the rest. But it's likely to load faster and play your thing with fewer glitches and hitches. Until you need the subtitles to be 5 pixels from the left edge of the screen and 8 ms offset from the audio. Then it's back to VLC.
The Modern (or Metro) version for Windows is great! I especially like the possibility to stream music from OneDrive. What I really miss is an option to pause video by clicking on it.
Can't live without VideoLAN
Vlc is great, using it on my movie pc.. Have windows 7 .
Using windows 10 on my mobile and there vlc sucks dick, it won't even play one stinking pls file, but on pc it can
vlc plays videos and movies of many formats and also offers subtitle options and has good volume effects.
i downloaded VLC for a try. But now i only use vlc as it plays almost all types of video files and also has got some awesome features.
I had some issues (am i the only one?):
On windows MPC-HC is the best alternative to it if you have similar issues.
Try MPV. It's open souce, free and works faster than VLC. Perhaps it will solve your problems?

It's being popular because of it's simplicity yet you don't need to install anything other than the media player itself, supports almost all subtitle types and codecs. It supports Android and Windows 10 too!
A good interface and audio quality may be not the best one out there, but I'm just using it for watching movies, videos, and my track project samples.
great video player app, i've been using it for a few years now and never had any problems with it.
