VLC Media Player is one of the easiest ways to play X264, MP4 and other file formats which are not supported by Windows Media Player by default. One of the best things about VLC is that you don’t need to mess with external codec packs – everything is built-in. Apart from that it’s free and supports a number of operating systems such as Windows Vista, Linux and Mac OS X. The latest available version of VLC media player (as of December 25th) is 0.9.8a.
