What is VLC Plus?

VLC classic is a modified distribution of the free open source VLC Player.

A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 42 files and is usually about 81.98 KB (83,951 bytes).
