Not the person making big generalizations based on such limited knowledge of the products that I can't actually back up my claims when I make them
There's a big difference between claiming something is better (or not) for one's individual needs and making categorical claims that something is definitely superior to something else.
VLC?? I guess that's because J. River may be a little to powerful for your average VLC user. VLC is very basic in comparison to J. River. J. Rivers library management by it's self is light years ahead of VLC.
These are features I find useful in JR.
Also allowing full processing in setups with advanced speaker configs such as bi-amping and tri-amping.

DSD playback using DoP bitstreaming
Support for OGG files that has more than 2 channels

DSP bitdepth Simulator = This is a parametric EQ that allows you to test what different bitdepths sound like.
Speaking of the EQ. The Parametric EQ can address channels 9 through 16 - Also a subwoofer mode and the subwoofer limiter that does FR based limiting.

Convolution - adjustment for room and size composition.
Play Doctor / Car Radio
Can build a desktop slide show folder of your choice. (pretty cool)
