    Hello Friend,

    Unless you provide me any specific details it is very difficult for me to give you any solution. It seems to me there is some technical issue with VLC Player and i prevents VLC to install to Windows 8 based PC. If you are keen to install VLC Player to your PC then you should try one last time and visit VLC Player website and download the latest version of the VLC Player. Now, check whether the installation of VLC Player can be done or not. If you face similar problem then you should install other popular media players such as,

    1. KM Player.
    2. GOM Player.

    Hopefully, this information will help you.

    Hello friend,

    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............................

    1.As windows 8 is the latest version of the OS you need to install all other software's also latest.

    2.If you try to install old version then it will not install.

    3.So you go to the website 'http://www.videolan.org/index.html'.

    4.And there you click on the option 'Download' and the VLC Player file will be downloaded.

    5.After downloading double click on it and start installing after installing you can use it.

    Have a nice day......................................
