Windows Media Player versus VLC

April 14th, 2010

Based on my personal preferences, I use Microsoft Windows as little as possible.

Due to the fact that Netflix is cheaper than cable where I live, I use Netflix. I personally find it inconvenient that it only supports Microsoft Internet Explorer, but that is besides the point. Fact is that I use Windows to watch television.

Previously I've used Windows Media Player, but today there is a time lapse between the video and the audio. In my opinion, that is unacceptable.

I'm looking at alternatives:

  • VLC
  • MPlayer


Audio is not working for me for some reason.


Everything I try causes it to crash.
