Hi and welcome

What app are you using to play videos and what codecs? There are apps like VLC that will open virtaully any video file without any additional codecs

I use VLC ,it is the only player that play video good but other players(windows media player , bsplayer , media player classic) have poor quality. Whatever codec i installed (Win7codec , K-lite) the quality is the same . I think that the built-in codecs doesn't let installed codecs to decode.
Example: if i play a .avi file the quality is the same with a codec installed or without it but if i play a file that windows media player can't open with built-in codecs like .mkv , the installed codecs begin to decode and the quality is good.

Usually most .avi's are pretty crappy quality compared to the kind of files that usually come in .mkv format which frequently are HD quality. So it's natural that avi's would look worse because they are lower quality.

Also, just installing Windows 7 codecs in and off itself is not necessarily enough to implement the kind of changes you might want to make. You need to open Shark's settings app that comes with the Windows 7 codecs and play around with the settings to change the codecs and splitters that are used with the various file types. One of the great things about Windows 7 codecs is how easy that settings app that comes with the package makes it to control which codecs and splitters are used for various file types.
