Media Player Classic Home Cinema is a free audio and video player for Windows x64.
MPC Homecinema is now available in 64 bits version for Windows Vista and the new Windows 7 (it should also work perfectly on Windows XP 64bit). Some functions have been removed, because they are not available in 64 bits yet: internal MPEG decoder and QuickTime are not supported, some "tricks" may not work because Microsoft Detour library is not available free for the 64 bits platform.
32 and 64 bits are completely separate world : MPC-HC 64 will use only 64 bits codecs installed on your machine. It's not possible to mix in one process 32 bits Dll with 64 bits, so you will still MPC-32 to play RealMedia or Quicktime for example.
List of supported codecs by Media Player Classic:
- Mpeg2 : using Vista Mpeg2 decoder (need Home editions)
- WM9/VC-1 : with Microsoft decoder
- H.264 : working with ffdshow X64 Experimental
- Xvid : working with ffdshow X64 Experimental
- MKV : use internal Matroska filter (until Haali x64 is available)
