The last update was in August 2019, no longer as "regular" as years ago. One my 32-bit laptop, it somehow made itself the default program to open my text files, & it couldn't be changed. Reinstalling it didn't help, so I uninstalled it for good. Yesterday it stopped working when I attempted to open an rmvb movie file, so I tried an mp4, & it still wouldn't open. So I'm using the South Korean KMPlayer. Just wish I could change the theme, it's so dark. Otherwise it plays fine.
