I have Media Player Classic 6.4.9.1 (updated Nov. 15 2008) http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Media_Player_C... and it most assuredly is NOT an End-of-Life program.

The more I think about this, why shouldn't Secunia simply update their definitions file for Media Player Classic? Yes, an Ignore rule "works" but it does not address the false positive issue. I have reported this once a few days ago but never received a reply from Secunia.

I agree Secunia should update there program. I will uninstall until it until then. Thought this app might be usefull so I installed, but its really not worth my time at this point. Its not to difficult to make sure all my applications are up to date manually. This product was designed to make it a little easier to check if everything is up to date.....Now if there are problems like this its really easier to uninstall Secunia and just check for yourself if you programs are up to date. In other words if your gonna have to go through the extra trouble to set up "rules" to this Secunia to ignore specific programs, well thats just a little more of a pain in butt than it is to actually go to the website of the product your setting a rule for and checking for yourself!.

Hi

I suggest that you download Media Player classic Home cinema: MPC HC

Its based on the old MPC and its still supported (thus not end of life)

I think PSI is correct in showing Media Player Classic as End Of Life.

The facts I have found are:
1. Snippet taken from Sourceforge

Date: 2008-01-19 13:30
Summary: What is the differences between Guliverkli2 and MPC-HC ?
Gabest, the original author of Media Player Classic, stop working on it by the end of 2006. Since then, two forks have been created.
Main differences between both is that Guliverkli2 (Media Player Classic) contains a few patches made by various people, and MPC-HC contains new features. Most patches present in Guliverkli2 are also present in MPC-HC.

2. No work has been carried out on Guliverkli2 (Media Player Classic) since January 2008: Details here:
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=77...

3. Declaration that an extended version of Media Classic.
Date: 2008-05-28 16:17
Summary: Media Player Classic - Home Cinema mod
There is a new extended version of Media Player Classic called the Home Cinema edition.

MPC-HC has some new functionality and improvements with regard to existing functionality.

You can find its projects page here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mpc-hc/

4.The last update of Media Classic (version 6.4.9.1) was released on 25 September 2007 not 15th November 2008 as suggested by Dan. The evidence is here:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_media_player_cla...
Codecs have been released since that date which do not alter the programme designation.

From what I have seen I would not be ignoring Media Classic or waiting for PSI to update its search parameters but upgrade to Media Player Classic Home Cinema which @Alan & @Underlien have done.

I am not a user & have merely carried out a mini investigations on the facts - I await the incoming Exocet missiles!!

I went to Download.com and downloaded media Player Classic 6.4.9 which was certified as spy ware free but when i tried to install the Adaware anniversary edition blocked it saying that there was a trojan . I tried to attach file but permission disallowed.
Is this correct?

Should I uninstall my MPC-64 bit and install MPC-HC? I'm running Vista 64 bit and am uncertain if MPC-HC is 64 bit compatible.

Thnx,
Dan

This link may help :-

http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

PSI tends to recognise Home Cinema better and I find K-Lite keeps me more up to date than thee sourceforge website .

It will also load Real Alternative for you ; if you scroll down it seems also to suggest sticking to 32 bit .

Thanks for the link - I'll be sure to install the 64 bit codec pack.
