E’ stata da poco rilasciata la versione 1.1.0 di VLC Media Player, un software che in questi anni ha scalato le classifiche di download nella propria categoria. Si tratta di un programma gratuito che permette la riproduzione di file video e audio di molti formati. Il software è disponibile per molti sistemi operativi fra cui:
Windows 2000 / XP (32/64 bit) / Vista (32/64 bit) / Windows 7 (32/64 bit) – Mac OS X 10.5 / 10.6 – Debian / Ubuntu / Mandriva / Fedora
Il programma freeware è disponibile in multilingua, fra cui anche l’Italiano, e permette la riproduzione di numerosi formati video e audio, ma non la riproduzione di canali Shoutcast: AOL ha vietato alla società di produzione di VLC, di inserire questo formato in questa release. Potete effettuare il download di VLC dal seguente link. Ecco le note di rilascio di questa nuova versione:

Ready for HD
GPU decoding on Windows Vista and 7, using DxVA2 for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2
GPU decoding on GNU/Linux, using VAAPI for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2
DSP decoding using OpenMax IL, for compatible embedded devices
Improved support for MKV HD, including seeking fixes, and 7.1 channels codecs
Support for new codecs, like Blu-Ray subtitles, MPEG-4 lossless and VP8
NB: so far, on Windows for GPU decoding, VideoLAN is recommending nVidia® GPU, until ATI® drivers are working with VLC architecture, and until the VLC developers get access to some Intel® hardware supporting GPU decoding.
