Does VLC Player work well on Windows 7 64-bit?

I tried VLC Player on Windows 7 64-bit version and the playback was fine, but when the video is maximized the image is very pixelated. I tried this on a Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card as well as a computer with an Intel graphics chipset and both have the same result.

"There were issues with Windows 7 and VLC with pixelation.
One workaround was to switch the video renderer (didn't work for me).

However if you use the latest build of VLC then you will find the issue has been fixed.
I'm using Windows 7 RTM 64bit and VLC 1.0.3 RC. I have a Radeon HD4870.

"as a staunch vlc user/supporter, i've recently switched over to the gom player. i've been extremely happy with it. you may want to give that a shot on your 7 box just as a test to see if the issue is with the video player or some other issue(drivers or source as mentioned by wil)....
