Codecs

Awhile ago I installed a bunch of codecs not knowing if I really needed them. Just want to know if I need them at all, installed or can I just uninstall them. Here they are:
Combined community codec pack 2009-09-09
K-lite codec pack 5.2.0 (full)
PixiePack codec pack

Thanks, B-72

Best policy with codecs. Only install them if you absolutely need to. We need to know what players you use, what type of video files you view, etc

Players I use are Windows Video Player, trailers on the web, Nero. Watch all kinds of video files. Thanks.

installing multiple codec packs can cause conflicts with your system... I would uninstall all of them for the time being and see, if in fact, you need them at all... Let us know if you need further help...
