Windows 7: Windows 7 Codecs

Windows 7 Codecs

I am wanting a codec pack for windows 7.

I have seen the shark one but when I go to install it wants to install a convertor. All I want is codecs to playback.

Is there anything else yet?

Converter?? I installed the shark007 ones and it only installs codecs, nothing else.

32-Bit here: Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs
64-Bit here: Shark007.net - x64 Components addon

Maybe you clicked the wrong button (there's some advertising on the side). You have to click the majorgeeks image.

Sharks codecs are the only ones I use on Windows 7 mainly because he states that he doesnt change or overwrite any of the existing codecs that come with Windows.

You clicked on the wrong icon. It is a bit confusing. Click on the Geeks icon.

I recommend K-Lite or CCCP (cccp is the best so far but K-lite is near).

CCCP for me. Works perfect. The MPC that's included is somewhat out of date though so I recommend getting MPC Home Cinema, if you prefer a minimalistic sort of video player.

Nop, stick with the MPC given by CCCP even if it's old. It's the better and the most stable version of MPC. Everything works without making a change.

Or if you preffer mode codecs (a lot) use K-Lite but it will consume more resources BUT it's up to date with the latest updates of codecs...anyway CCCP is the most recommended because they are not codecs, are only filtres configured for the best performance&less resources.
