Working fine on my Win7 64 system. Now up to v2.0.1. Available here

VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

What version of VLC player are you using? I think the latest version is 2.01 at the moment. Please update your VLC media player and see if that solves your issue.

Try the KMPlayer. I consider it better than VLC. It plays everything. The 64-bit version can be downloaded from http://www.x64bitdownload.com/downlo...-qfzcyuju.html

LOL, I was reading the first post or two, and was thinking exactly that.

I use the K-Lite Codec Pack on mine, and have for years.

I set its attributes to WMP, and there's literally nothing it won't play.

For the two or three clips it won't play, the K-Lite player usually will.

And it works nicely in 64-bit Win 7.

VLC doesn't have the prevalence of codec malfunctions and errors like K-Lite has. I would stick with the dependable software myself.

I downgraded back from v2.0 to a previous version, though, as its installation made videos play in an embedded vlc player in firefox no matter what settings were changed within firefox to prevent it. I didn't like it overtaking firefox like that.

You could always remove or disable the VLC plugin for FireFox.

Why should I have to disable or remove the plugin for it to not be obstructive in this version when it's always worked fine until this release? I've always enabled the plug-in but only had it play .flv, .divx, or .mkv files that weren't natively supported by WMP. For whatever reason when I upgraded, it played every single movie file, no matter what was changed in the Content settings of Firefox or what the default players for the movie files were. Something definitely went awry with v2.0.

Personally, I've had no issues with K-Lite in over five years of use, apart
from the fact that it won't work well with Super C file converter.

Well, K-Kite works fine, but it kills Super C.

TMPGEnc fixed that.

No other issues (touch wood).
