    Open more Videos than VLC?

    Hey Guys,

    Anybody know a better program that will open all video type files and possibly more efficient than VLC?

    I have a ton of recovered video files - some that are 4-25 gigs!

    I try opening them with VLC and most do not play So I want another 2nd opinion program to test them..

    But as far as I know, VLC can open almost anything, even ISOs.

    VLC is always going to be the best. The problem that people run into, is trying to do it on a system that does not have a powerful GPU, enough RAM, fast CPU. If those video files are not playing, most likely they are corrupted.

    sPlayer may be worth a try. Be sure to download the portable version because it does not have a bug that the installed version has.
