VLC 1.1.0 preview adds GPU acceleration

Filed under
Software

The VideoLAN Project developers have announced the availability of a preview release for version 1.1, the first test release of the 1.1.x branch, of their popular VLC Media Player. VLC is a free open source cross-platform multimedia player for various audio and video formats.

The preview release of VLC 1.1.0 features support for GPU decoding on Vista, Windows 7 and Linux systems, as well as overall CPU decoding improvements on Windows. The changes should reduce CPU load when playing back HD videos, such as those encoded using the H.264 codec. However, the Mac OS X version, still currently only uses CPU decoding.
