VLC Media Player is a software that shows its versatility thanks to the many versions compatible with leading operating systems. In this introductory guide will take as reference the edition dedicated to Windows, but remember that the key features are common to all other supported operating systems.
The installation phase is completed quickly and independently from your system. Currently there is support for Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Seven both 32 and 64 bits, but at the dedicated FTP server you can also download previous releases for Windows 95/98/ME, reflecting the attention paid by developer community to all kinds of users.
After you have read and accept the terms of the license (GNU) must choose between the type of installation recommended, minimal, complete and personalized, with the possibility of indicating the items you want to install.
Among those options include the Start Menu shortcut, the shortcut on the desktop, the Mozilla and ActiveX plugins, playing records, file associations audio / video, and contextual menus.
The full installation requires a free space on your hard drive equal to 78.7 MB. The next step requires the choice of the destination folder in the short path and you can confirm the default location.
At the end of the wizard you can run the software directly, or read the notes on the file "read me".
