Video player (software)
A video player is a kind of media player for playing back digital video data from media such as optical discs (for example, DVD, VCD), as well as from files of appropriate formats like AVI, RealVideo and QuickTime.
Besides VCR-like functions such as playing, pausing, stopping, rewinding and forwarding, some common functions include zooming/full screen, audio channel selection, subtitle selection, and frame capturing.
Many of the video players also support simple playback of digital audio.
