What are the various features of the VLC version compatible with Windows 7?
VLC media player is a free and open source media player and multimedia framework, which is a portable multimedia player. VLC, when expanded, becomes Video LAN Client. It is also an encoder and streamer supporting many audio and video codec and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various other protocols. It is able to stream over networks, transcode multimedia files, and store them in different formats. It works for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, GNU, Linux, BeOS, BSD, and iOS. The default distribution of VLC comprises a large number of free decoding and encoding libraries on the Windows platform, thereby avoiding the need for finding or calibrating proprietary plug-ins. Many codec of VLC are offered by the libavcodec library from the FFmpeg project, but it employs mainly its own muxer and demuxers.

Network connection type
VLC media player can display the playing video as the desktop wallpaper on your PC, like Windows DreamScene, by using DirectX- available in Windows only. VLC media player can do screen casts and record the desktop as well. VLC can be installed and run directly from a flash or any other external disk. Above all, VLC can play videos in the AVCHD format, which is a highly compressed format used in recent HD camcorders.
Setup site-to-site connection
Since VLC is a packet-based media player, it can play the video content of some damaged, unfinished, or incomplete videos. The player also has the capability to use libcdio to access iso files so that the user can play files on a disk image. VLC supports all file formats supported by libavcodec and libavformat and all audio and video formats. This means that VLC can play back H.264 or MPEG-4 video as well as support FLV or MXF file formats 'out of the box' using FFmpeg's libraries. On the other hand, VLC has modules for codec that are not based on FFmpeg's libraries.
Select the right hardware
The main features are GPU decoding on Windows 7, using DxVA2 for H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2, improved support for MKV HD, including seeking fixes, and 7.1 channel codec and support for new codec like Blu-Ray subtitles, MPEG-4 lossless, and VP8. You can now customize VLC with additions. This player also supports WebM decoding and encoding and improved web plug-ins. VLC 1.1. 0 final would now give you better audio experience. VLC has faster decoding, with up-to 40% speed- ups in HD resolutions.
