Windows 7: Win7codecs

Win7codecs

Win7codecs is an audio and video codec package for Windows 7. The installer will automatically remove most other popular codec releases from your computer before installing this concise yet comprehensive package. You won't need to make any adjustments or tweaks to enjoy your media content immediately. Windows Media Player and Media Center will instantly recognize all your files as playable.

It does not contain a media player and it does not associate file-types. With this package installed you will be able to use any media player, limited only by the players' capabilities, to play all movies and video clips. Streaming video is supported in several formats in all popular web browsers. Users of the Win7codecs have the ability to choose what is installed and where to install it using the public redistributable. After installation you can select to remove specific portions without removing the entire package. You can also re-add the removed items at any time.

Use a good player and you don't need additional codecs. If you search a little you will find that adding these things causes more problems than they solve.

While that may be true, this is very handy for those who use Media Center (like me) to view ALL video files. I've been using the Shark007 codecs for a while now & so far they're the best out there IMO

You're right, if you use WMP, then you will need these things...

Depends what you count as a good player. One persons good player might not be the next persons good player.

With the latest x64 release, v202, I also support playback of standalone FLAC audio files in x64 Media Center and WMP. To enables this playback you must select the x64 WMP as the default player.


I rarely make troubleshooting posts outside of my own forums but was asked to make a post here because I have DTS mentioned in the current changelogs and a sevenforums member emailed me about this type of audio in an AVI container. DTS audio is an extremely difficult audio format on Windows 7 simply because Microsoft locks in thier codecs and doesnt give the user any obvious way around this. I have always been against hacking the system or changing windows installed filenames to achieve my goals.

If you have DTS audio in an AVI container, follow this proceedure for playback in WMP or MC;

Open the appropriate settings application . . .
use the 32bit application for a 32bit player, or the x64 application for MC on x64 systems
Change the AVI splitter under the AVI TAB to Gabests splitter
then rename the AVI to MP4
now your file will play.

If you have other playback issues that you'd like me to address, PLEASE take it to my forums.
I do not have the time to monitor 20 different forums scattered all over the net.
