VLC is an extremely popular video player that is designed to play nice with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Part of the appeal that the application offers to users is the fact that it is pretty self-sufficient as far as video codecs go. In this regard, the promise from VideoLAN is that users will only need VLC and they will be able to play the vast majority of videos on the web, simply because the app comes with the necessary codecs integrated by default.
The Release Candidate build of VLC 1.1.0 is now available for download for users of Windows operating systems, including Windows 7. When offering the new RC Build of VLC Media Player 1.1.0, VideoLAN boasted a range of enhancements from performance to additional codec support, but also bug fixes, stability and reliability improvements, etc. The RC development milestone, while signaling the video player’s proximity to finalization, is still a pre-release Build designed for testing, and not for deployment into production environments.
