Windows Media Player in Windows 7 Dolby Dynamic Range Compression

So based on my Google Analytics numbers, I've gotten a fair number of people visiting this blog looking for Dynamic Range Compression information in VLC. Recently I was watching some OTA HDTV in Windows Media Player in Windows 7, and heard the unmistakable sudden volume shifts of Dynamic Range Compression. After clicking around in the menus, I discovered the location for the DRC Dolby setting in Windows 7. Right click on the playing video, select Enhancements, then Dolby Digital settings. Select Theater, and enjoy the much increased dynamic range.
