This article describes a platform update for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This update improves the features and performance of the following components:
- Windows Imaging Component (WIC)
- Windows Advanced Rasterization Platform (WARP)
- Windows Animation Manager (WAM)
- XPS Document API
- H.264 Video Decoder
- JPEG XR codec
I guess the H.264 Video Decoder update could be applicable to us here in New Zealand running HTPCs with the built-in codecs. The problem is the download link goes nowhere at the moment.
