Players like VLC can be used on PC to watch movies. I’ll show you the steps to install VLC on PC using emulators like BlueStacks and Nox. But First, let’s talk about the VLC player.

VLC is easy to use and has an amazing interface so that users can watch videos easily. The player is capable of streaming videos and can play many different video formats (MP4, AVI).

Unfortunately, Users cannot use the application on PC but now they can. They can use this application by using emulators. Emulators like BlueStacks and Nox are android emulators and can be installed on Windows and Mac OS. But what are Emulators?
