VLC media player (commonly known as VLC) is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player which can play most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs and various streaming protocols. VLC supports various video formats like MP4, MOV, 3GP, etc. Besides, it can stream media over computer networks and transcode multimedia files. Here are some main features.

  • Easy-to-use, fast speed and powerful media player;
  • Supports various input formats (videos, audios, discs and streams);
  • Runs on most platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, etc);
  • Completely free, without ads and restrictions.

QuickTime Player is an extensible multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc. It is now available free of charge for both OS X and Windows operating systems. The main function is similar to VLC Media Player including handling various formats of digital video, picture, sound, panoramic images, and interactivity. The following are the main features.

  • Fully supports Mac OS X;
  • Encodes and transcodes video and audio from one format to another;
  • Saves existing QuickTime movies from the web directly to a hard disk drive;
  • Saves the embedded video in its original format or in a *.mov file format no matter what the original container is/was.
