VLC Media Player is a packet-based media player it plays almost all video content. VLC Media Player 3.0.0 Mac can play some, even if they’re damaged, incomplete, or unfinished, such as files that are still downloading via a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. VLC Media Player 3.0.0 Mac also plays m2t MPEG transport streams (.TS) files while they are still being digitized from an HDV camera via a FireWire cable, making it possible to monitor the video as it is being played. The player can also use libcdio to access .iso files so that users can play files on a disk image, even if the user’s operating system cannot work directly with .iso images.
VLC Media Player 3.0.0 Mac supports all audio and video formats supported by libavcodec and libavformat. This means that VLC Media Player 3.0.0 Mac can play back H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 2 video as well as support FLV or MXF file formats “out of the box” using FFmpeg’s libraries. Alternatively, VLC Media Player 3.0.0 Mac has modules for codecs that are not based on FFmpeg’s libraries.
VLC Media Player 3.0.0 Mac is one of the free software DVD players that ignores DVD region coding on RPC-1 firmware drives, making it a region-free player. However, VLC Media Player 3.0.0 Window does not do the same on RPC-2 firmware drives, as in these cases the region coding is enforced by the drive itself, however, it can still brute-force the CSS encryption to play a foreign-region DVD on an RPC-2 drive.

It can also output video as ASCII art.
