VLC media player 1.0.2

VideoLAN is an excellent multimedia player with it’s own plugins for playing different formats, so it doesn’t need any codecs to be installed. It works great for previewing partially downloaded files too as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. I hope they’ve fixed the pixelation problems I have under Windows 7.
