Windows 7: Same programs on Xp and Win7 machines, no Flac on win7?

Same programs on Xp and Win7 machines, no Flac on win7?

I use mainly Winamp for audio and VLC for video.

I have music that I've played on my XP machine transferred onto my Win7 Machine, and it won't play on the Win7 machine. To my knowledge Winamp and VLC both should have flac playback.

Kinda curious as to what's going on.

You would have to install a codec to use it. There are several free codec packs available that would add support for flac. One is the K Lite codec pack. There is another that one of the Win 7 forum members has that is also reported as working well but I don't remember what that is.

Is there a lightweight FLAC player for Win7?
Up through Win XP Pro I was using Winamp to play my FLAC files. But even then I was using an older version of Winamp because I did not like the "kitchen sink" growth approach that Winamp was having. When I got to Win7 x64 I took a look at the Win7 compatible version and saw that it was even worse...
