VLC 64-bit

Hi,

Videolan released the win64 version of VLC
(http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/2.0.1/win64/).

Can I replace the contents of \PortableApps\VLCPortable\App with the content of the 7-Zip archive?
Or when will an PA version of VLC 64-bit available?

Greetings
Thomas

Most Likely

You can most likely.

We don't do any 64-bit only apps since then it would just not work when you bring it to certain PCs. We do dual mode 32 & 64-bit apps in very specific circumstances (read more here: 64-bit Software: Where It Fits Into Portable Apps). VLC would likely not be a good fit for this as the app would double in size for no real benefit.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
