Windows 7: VLC Player and Win7 x64

VLC Player and Win7 x64

Greetings,

I need an FLV player. I've downloaded the VLC Player but have noticed that the file says win32.

I think it'll run on Windows 7 x64 but am not sure and would like to be certain before attempting installation.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks. I just installed it without any problems and its running just fine. BTW, when there's an update to the player must I first uninstall the old version or install the new over the old. I don't remember.

Have no idea. I just started using it myself.
As to updates I wouldn't worry about it. If the player is playing like you want I see no reason to update it. just my opinion.

+1. I'm running v1.1.6, have it set up/customised how I like and feel no need to change. However, if you do feel the need to upgrade you can just run the new installer.

As I remember it checks for updates, then gives you the option of downloading it. But that's for later. I have the newest player, at the moment. Thanks again.

Well that is IF you ALLOW it to check for updates.
I don't with any software. Just the way I do things. Don't care for Auto Updates one bit.
Just looked and I find no reference to Auto Updates. So if it does it I will be uninstalling it.
