Desktop Video/MP4 Player


Hi Jeff,

Wanted to ask if you have a recommendation for a FREE download for MP4 media player?

Just learned animation and want to send a file to several perspective clients (in MP4 file format).  I've been exploring a number of diffferent types; however now feel more confused than ever.

Looking for one that is professional and least amount of spam as well as easy to download (clientele isn't the most tech savvy).

Thank you for your time!

Do you want a media player or media converter (compression software?)

Media Player. VLC Player. It's free, open source, can be in a portable version (requiring no administrator rights. Plays everything.

Compression? Let me know.

Are you generating your animations with After Effects?
