"v1.7.13, the latest, and probably the last release of our project…"
:(

MIKLO on 2017-08-26 13:58

No matter what IMO Media Player Classic has always been, and will always be the best overall Media Player. I've been using for a very long time on many different OS's and it fulfilled my needs on all of them. I like the look and all the rest, maybe I'm being partial but so what it works 4me :) Great job by the makers so thanks for the hard work.

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.
