Windows 7: New with Win7, need help with codecs

New with Win7, need help with codecs

Hello there
So i'm new with Windows 7, and even more with a 64-bit OS so i keep coming here to clear some doubts cause i just got this laptop and dont want to mess things up.

So, I use to have K-lite Mega Codec Pack installed in my other laptop (Win Vista x86), and watched everything on Media Player Classic, but some files weren't syncronized with subtitles so i opened with BSPlayer to sync them manually.

Now in this laptop i went to search for K-lite for 64-bit OS, and i got these: but when install finished it had no MPC and it seemed to me to have less codecs.

I'm in a Multimedia Degree and i use Adobe Premiere CS3/4 (still dont know what to install but probably the new one). Also i've read here some problems Launching the game Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion, could be due to the lack of codecs.

So i think you get all i need
Codecs for Win7 x64 with MPC and able to work along with BSPlayer and Adobe Premiere CS3/4 and Quicktime Pro btw, and also that might help with games.


Btw, i can't tell what Build is my version of Win7, i just can say it's Windows 7 Home Premium (can you tell me how to know the build?)

Windows 7 (6.1, Build 7600)

Thank you

Press start (the bottom left button) and write dxdiag and press enter.
It will scan for some time and you will get windows like the picture.
You can see Operating system is highlighted, and your build.

Hope it helped

I am not sure about K-lite codec pack.

But maybe you may give a try to: Shark007 codec pack?

Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs
64 bit components: Shark007.net - Windows 7 x64 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs

But I am not sure, I don't use codecs myself.
For video playing I use TheKmPlayer, and it has internal codecs which supports almost all formats.
If you want give a try to it: The KMPlayer's Forums - Powered by Pandora TV
