Windows 7: x64 video player?

x64 video player?

If I'm not wrong the WMP12 on my Windows7 is 32 bit player. Is that true, because the process in the task manager shows *32 after the wmplayer process but i have a folder in my Program files (not the x86) with lots of files in it.
If the 64bit players are better can you suggest me one, to see if I can find a difference? I've installed 64bit k-lite codec pack. I hear that Media Center player and Media Player Classic are 64bit but i don't like them.

On my WMP, I opened it up in restorator, and it says the arcitecture is *, which means that it adapts to whichever archietecture you have. (pretty sure)

If you install shark's codec pack and 64-bit components, it gives you the simple option of setting the 64-bit WMP as default.

I've uninstalled the K-lite and installed the Shark codec pack. Now everything seems to work alright. Thanks to all of you
