VLC is one of the most popular media players. It is not only available on Windows but has a presence on almost all platforms. It allows users to open almost any type of media file, including photos, videos, or audio.
Another good thing about the application is that it’s totally free and there are no paid features or Pro tier. Despite being a free app, there are no advertisements in the interface, keeping the user interface and experience clean.
In this guide, we will show you a step-by-step process on installing the VLC Player on Amazon Fire TV Stick which can be used to play videos from external storage or can be integrated with other apps to play the content.
