Hey! Everyone's favorite video playing software, VLC, jumped to 1.1.0 today and added some GPU decoding for Windows and Linux users as well, giving your CPU a break when you're trying to play those gigantic HD files you've been feverishly torrenting. One caveat: the Windows version only works with nVidia GPUs, as ATI's drivers currently don't play nice. Mac users: you'll have to wait to GPU decode another day. [CrunchGear]
