I need to reinstall WMP 12 video codecs (quick link)

When uninstalling (completely uninstalling mind you) Winamp, I took all the video codecs with it too (.avi .mpg and others). I'm currently using WMP 12. Could someone please provide me with a trusted and Microsoft approved link for me to reinstall these codecs? Greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The Win7codecs will fix those damaged registry entries.

Which video codecs do I need to install?
I have just re-installed Windows XP, but now cannot watch any videos because of missing codecs. Anyone knows what are the ones necessary? Any recommended codec pack, or is it better to download and install each one separately? TIA
