Get the Shark007 codec pack + Media Player Classic Home Cinema x64. Perfect combo IMO.

Shark007 is a very good codec pack I prefer it over klite pack.

You will get it from here: Shark007's FREE Codec solutions.

Be careful though not to break the Microsoft DVD/DTV codec, if you plan to use Mediacenter.

If you do plan on using Mediacenter read this first.

Replacing the Default DTV/DVD Decoder without Breaking Live TV Playback

What is that about, will installing the Shark007 mess something up. I just want to make sure everything will play. I have a bunch of MKV files that I have to open to VLC to play and such.. I just need a codec. I don't want to mess with any Microsoft DVD/DTV Codecs or anything.

I posted the link to the article. So if you want to be educated on it, I suggest you read it.

Providing you chose the right version.

Shark has made one especially for not messing up Live tv.

Other versions will.

well I don't see multiple versions on his site, there is just one for vista, and Win 7.. and then there is an add-on for x64 users. but that adds some DirectVOBSub thing so people can have subtitles in Media player, and I don't really need those. but should I still install the x64 add-on anyways.

I don't see more than one version of shark that says anything about one messing up default codecs?
