How To Play MIDI music files on Windows 10 with VLC Media Player

If you missed being able to play MIDI music files on Windows by default, now you can play those tunes you remember again with VLC Media Player version 3.0+. Apparently, there was a security flaw in FluidSynth for VLC version 2.0.x, so MIDI support was dropped until version 3.0+. So download the latest version 3.0.3 (as of this post) along with the free soundfont file VLC recommends, configure Fluidsynth to point to the soundfont through VLC settings, and you’ll be listening to those old video game tunes in no time!
