As a supernova in the history of Windows operation system, Windows 7 furnishes a cluster of compelling and spicy features. One of the big margins between Windows 7 and its predecessor, currently dominant Windows XP OS is manifested on the system’s multimedia capabilities. Users of Windows XP must have long been cumbered by the system devoid of playback support for many popular video formats except the software giant’s own patent formats ASF and WMV. Now with the advent of Windows 7, gone was the requirement to install a third-party media player, added with the powerful ability of video playback. And you are to be convinced by the charts below.
