On today's show, David and I talk about VLC or VideoLan.

VLC is a free-open source cross platform multimedia player that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.

As an Open Source player it is available to users with no financial obligation... although, the producers would like you to donate to them so that they can continue to develop VLC and work on new projects.

VLC (VideoLan) has many features. Check out this list below. (By the way, Teaching Learning Leading K12 does not have a financial obligation to or an affiliation with VideoLan.) It is an amazing opensource tool that will liberate you from other players that have built in issues.

This is the first appearance of our new segment called Quick Tech Tips.

David is the Technology Director for the Heart of Georgia RESA.

He specializes in Linux and open source systems.

Once a month we will have a Quick Tech Tip segment.

It will last approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
