2. Multimedia 8

One of my big gripes with Microsoft Surface, and with Windows 8 in general, is that Microsoft seems to have skimped on the video codecs. I have a rather large collection of movies in .MP4 format and haven’t been able to get any of them to natively play. Thankfully, Multimedia 8 solves this problem nicely.
