If you're having trouble playing certain video files on your computer, you might just be interested in checking out XP Codec Pack which, despite its name, actually works on newer versions of Windows such as Windows 7 and Windows 7 64-bit.
If you've installed a codec pack on your system before and have run into trouble viewing certain types of movies, you might be wary of installing another one. XP Codec Pack is different, since it isn't bloated and includes the absolute best codecs available at the moment for Windows. Latest versions of this codec pack are also pretty good because the team behind XP Codec Pack includes the latest stable versions of the codecs it installs.
The great thing about this pack is that it includes support for the most popular formats of video and audio files. Other formats which are not that common generally won't be included in this solution, since they sometimes and often at the worst of times collide with each other.
XP Codec Pack is extremely stable and is an excellent choice if you're interested in installing only one codec pack which does not eventually lead to errors. We therefore recommend this codec pack to anybody who does any type of video viewing.XP Codec Pack features and highlights:
