VLC's been around for ages & it's simply put, the best. Afaik it's never once given me any problems. No lag, broken subtitles, long skip time's, loading media, crashes, you name it. It doesn't get any better than this.

U can you use it to make .gif's too.

This is the best for watching movies of all kinds. I've had no problems with it. I use it on my laptop and desktop instead of the DVD viewing software that came pre-installed. The picture even looks better. Also keeps up to date on all the codecs needed for .avi so it's not picky about what it plays like a lot of players can be.

Quicktime, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player - Nein!

I will only use VLC to play DVDs / video on my laptop. First of all, VLC is free. Second of all, it's not slow like Quicktime. Thirdly, it's not selective in what it wants to play the way Windows Media Player is - WMP says oh no, I want to play this psychedelic movement instead of the movie you're watching. Oh okay. I'd love to listen to scenes from Alfred Hitchcock films accompanied by psychedelic movement. That's quite fitting. Lastly, it's not buggy and doesn't totally ruin things the way that Real Player does.
