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.

Go into your DEefault programs under asssocaite thgeprogram and chage all the x386 ato 64 bit Media Player. Make sure you ahve tghe latest Shark codecs installed including the 64 bit. and check off in the 64 bit use 64 bit media player.

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

Video player that divides video into smaller scenes for preview?
Hi there. I'm looking for a video player that can divide videos into smaller scenes (like every 15 or 30 sec) so that they serve as previews and lets you seek to the part you want. Note that it doesn't really split the video; it just does it on the spot for previewing purposes. This technique was...
