View Full Version : Freeware codecs, avi and divx especially for WMP11?

Can anybody tell me where I can get these codecs for my WMP11? Preferably without having to download a player as well.

Probably be better if you downloaded something like this (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/). That'll probably play most of what you've got. WMP should play AVI, it doesnt play DVD or MP4 natively however

Unless, you're using Windows Vista (for DVD), or windows 7 (for DVD and MP4), if you've got MP4 files

I'd also recommend on what Speedy said. VLC is extremely good

Another vote for VLC but besides that, ffdshow-tryouts (http://ffdshow-tryout.sourceforge.net/) should sort your system out.
I wouldn't go near codec packs personally.

K-Lite is mostly FFMpeg these days anyways. It's good.

For Win7 there's the Shark007 Codec pack which is great.

Otherwise, VLC.

Always more than one way to skin a cat ;)

A big thankyou to Goodiesguy! The K-lite codec pack did the trick! Bloody complicated little bit of software (over 200 codecs and options) but hey, it got me my video back on my WMP, so thanks. I owe you one dude!

How will you pay him one dude?
Assuming he wants one of course. :p
