The abbreviation of "Video LAN Client", Wikipedia describes this program as a multimedia player, supporting many audio and video codecs and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols... a cross-platform media player, with versions for MS Windows, Mac OS X, GNU, Linux, iOS and many others. With the VLC's portable version, you can use it directly from your USB flash drive (without installing it on your system's hard drive). More and more NCCU web users are choosing VLC as an alternative to QuickTime, ReaPlayer and others to deliver streaming media. Is VLC already installed on your system? Now use it to view our video streams. Just remember (if prompted) to grant permission for your browser to use VLC plug-in.
Does you Windows PC require Administrator privileges (which you may lack) to install VLC? The Portable/Standlaone/Install-Free version works particularly well, even for less experienced users, who don't like to install new programs on their system. It's as easy as saving VLC Portable to your USB drive, and click it to run from there. If your Windows system already has VLC installed, the portable version (instructions below) is not necessary to view our streaming media immediately. Similar steps apply to other non-Windows users.
After you select a preferred language and a destination folder/directory for VLC to expand and reside (i.e., click "OK + Next + Next + Install"), you can just check the "Run VLC Media Player Portable" checkbox and click "Finish".
