VLC is a media player by the VideoLAN team designed to emphasize portability and compatibility. Historically, it was groundbreaking for Linux media software by being the first player to ship with libdvdcss, letting it play encrypted DVDs. This is now a feature that almost all players include, and is no longer an advantage.

Installation

To install, simply run Template:Cli

Language

It seems VLC does not offer an option to change language in its Preferences menu. But you can use the LANGUAGE= prefix. For instance:

 LANGUAGE=fr vlc %U

will switch VLC interface to french.
