This is my first post and I wanted to make it so special that I chose my favorite multimedia player software itself to be the topic. VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD, VCD, and various streaming protocols. It is completely Free, no Spyware, Ads or User Tracking

This wonderful piece of software is available for so many platforms including Linux, Mac and Windows. Unfortunately it doesn’t come pre-installed in Ubuntu 11.10. But it is very easy to install VLC in Ubuntu. Let’s take a look at how to install VLC in Ubuntu 11.10.
