VLC is a skinnable, feature-rich media player that supports a wide variety of multimedia file and streaming formats. It can play files while they download, from inside RAR files, online radio stations, convert video formats and much more. The software can also behave as a streaming server for delivering video in unicast or multicast mode.

VLC Media Player Portable is a portable wrapper for VLC. Alternatively, X-VideoLAN is also available.

I wonder why they never made a 64 bit version and if it doesn't matter why do they call this a 32 bit version? I mean after all its been around a very long time. I'm jus sayin :)

@MIKLO
They have made 64 bit versions - they're just hard to find!
Pick your flavor from the drop-down menu: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
Or get it direct: https://get.videolan.org/vlc/2.2.8/win32/vlc-2.2.8-win32.7z.
I have a program that relies on VLC's 64 bit codecs, so I had to search for it.

BTW, these (zip and 7zip) have been described elsewhere as 'portable', they do not require installation (unpack and run), they apparently still some files (including an INI) in user AppData folder. I have not verified that.

kanu: thanks for your post but I just tested both with UniExtractor and 7zip and both worked fine.

kanu on 2017-05-23 05:20

webfork: Thanks for answering. It looks like the file I got from MajorGeeks is corrupted because I redownloaded and still didn't extract correctly. I searched for another host and now all the files extract as usual.
(Looks like I can't post vtotal urls here)

The Brazilian Portuguese is not the real language, because Files in Brazilian are not "ficheiros". They are called "Arquivos". =( I have to change to English, because Portuguese of Portugal is not my preference.
