VLC media player 1.0.3

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. The Windows 7 image quality issues should have been fixed in this release.

regressions in most popular drivers

* Windows version supports now natively the WMA Professional codec, as it
didn’t work in the packaged version of 1.0.2

* Update for appletrailers lua script
* Fixes on the RAR stream filter
* Fix for E-AC3 in ATSC/TS streams
* Various fixes for v4l and v4l2
* Fix a crash in mjpeg demuxer
