    1 README for the VLC media player
    2 ===============================
    3 
    4 VLC is a popular libre and open source media player and multimedia engine,
    5 used by a large number of individuals, professionals, companies and
    6 institutions. Using open source technologies and libraries, VLC has been
    7 ported to most computing platforms, including GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac OS X,
    8 BSD, iOS and Android.
    9 VLC can play most multimedia files, discs, streams, allows playback from
   10 devices, and is able to convert to or stream in various formats.
   11 The VideoLAN project was started at the university École Centrale Paris who
   12 relicensed VLC under the GPLv2 license in February 2001. Since then, VLC has
   13 been downloaded close to one billion times.
