VLC Media Player is packed with features. For some of us, it is just a video player. But pop the hood and it reveals other tricks. It can be a YouTube downloader or a file converter. It can take a screenshot and it can also be your video wallpaper.


With so many hidden features, you might have missed the few Easter Eggs it comes with. Let’s play around with two of them.

1. Create the Mind-Bending Inception Trick
