VLC 1.1.5 adds live WebM streaming support, Game Music Emu, Channels.com shows

Popular do-it-all media player VLC has updated to version 1.1.5, and there are a handful of noteworthy changes nestled amongst the bugfixes and security patches. For starters, VLC can now play live streaming video wrapped in Google's WebM video container.

The second big addition can be found on VLC's playlist window. Click the arrow next to Internet in the Media Browser box, and you'll notice Channels.com has been added to the mix. While you won't be able to access the entire vast expanse of shows Channels.com offers, VLC does include more than 1,000 popular offerings.

VLC 1.1.5 also brings one seriously awesome new feature for classic gaming fans: it can now play back a variety of video game audio using the Game Music Emu engine. Yes, you can now play your favorite in-game music from Atari, Famicom, and Sega right alongside your MP3 collection.
