Windows 7: Media Player 12 and MP4 Codec

Media Player 12 and MP4 Codec

I'm running Win 7 Pro with WMP 12 installed and have tried to download an MP4 codec.
The codec package from MS is only applicable up to XP SP3 and I can't force that compatibility. Any ideas?

Use Sharks Codec Pack .... He is a regular user here and his codec pack will allow you to play all media files natively in WMP... Windows 7 Codecs

Just so you are more clear, MP4 is natively supported in Windows 7. Did you try just playing the file? It has some limitations and Shark's pack fills those holes but it is good to know why you need a codec.
