    Alright, I have CCCP installed. I use the Media Player Classic that comes with it. I just recently installed SUMo and it tells me there is a newer version of MPC, so I go look it up, and on the MPC website they have x64 and x86 versions, and I have 1.1 something, the latest is 1.2.

    Which version do I download, CCCP is x86, can I install over that one? I would like x64 if possible, do I need to uninstall CCCP first? or...I am a bit confused lol

    if you want x64 player you will need x64 cccp, dont know why you want cccp with mpchc it plays everything without the need for codecs, as most are built into the player

    I didn't know CCCP had x64, and because it has more options and seems to play more things then when I used to only use MCP.

    And if I stay with x86, can I install over it? Or will it make 2 of them?

    well what i mean is if you use a 64bit player you will need 64bit codecs, as far as i know (last time i looked at cccp its only x86)

    Well I decided to remove CCCP and everything with that, and installed MCP x64 by itself. I hope I don't have any video issues.

    don't do that.

    Remove mpc x64 and reinstall cccp. The codecs built in to mpchc aren't all up to snuff.

    Why would that be?

    The MCP in CCCP is older then the stand alone MCP?

    i know people who use x64 mpchc and tell it to use external ffdshow x64 if they get issues with a built in codec

    also select evr in mpchc and you should be set

    I kinda like the idea of there being the one program, no haali, ffdshow,etc installed as well. Now so far I am not having any playback issues, but I assume I will come across some in the future.

    So I will follow your suggestion Lord when I have too.

    Thanks.

    if you want to give the impression that you have more than 0 brain cells, do as i said 5 minutes ago. That is all you need for video playback on windows unless you need to play blu-ray/hd-dvd.

    anything else will cause you problems that you'll be posting on here for in a few weeks.

    Doesn't matter about MPC.

    The point is that using the codecs in CCCP to augment what WMC already has, you can play everything simply by using WMP and WMC. You can still manipulate the codecs to manipulate audio/video as needed.

    So I ended up updated MPC that was installed from the latest CCCP.

    Because I forgot about this. Now it's a different .exe file then the original. Is the MCP I am using now (its installed in the same folder) using the codecs and things from CCCP? Or..
