Best Freewares for your PC(2): Best Free Media Players

Everyone loves music and watching movies. Everyone loves free software. Having a combination of both is like having a good auditory and visual experience in our PC.

Most of us spend time in our PC by listening to our music files while we browse the internet, or just reading an e-book or creating a document. We even watch our favorite movies and videos in our computers. Having Windows Media Player may not just be enough as it cannot play all our music and video files. So, here's 2 of free media players that I love to use:

  • VLC Media Player - this media player by VideoLAN, can play almost all files, music, videos, streaming, and even RAR files! The program is very easy to use and the interface is very appealing. In addition, you can download skins from the official site to enhance your visual experience as well. You can never get outdated with this player as it updates regularly, giving you bug fixes, enhancements and new codecs. Download here.
  • Media Player Classic - Home Cinema - an alternative to Real Player, this software can also play almost all files just like VLC. The interface is very simple and user-friendly. It is also is updated on a regular basis. I have this player alongside VLC. Get your MPC-HC here.
