Default What's so great about VLC?

I hear a lot of buzz about VLC, but I was wondering what does it have that other media players don't?

Its better than WMP, and that in itself is all I need.
And I just use it for videos.

Its main use is that it is free and can play dvd's without having to buy some DVD codec for $20 if your computer didnt come with the right software.

However, I like KMPlayer better, it has more features.
