    you're welcome.

    It is always nice to hear from someone capable of appreciating quality software
    that does exactly what it was designed to do.
    I'd urge anyone who is looking for an all in one solution to missing codec issues to also install Shark007's W7 codec pack.
    I'd also like to add that you should never just read one person's opinion when it comes to software, always do your homework first.

    I find only a few responses from Microsoft on this issue on Windows 7 forums on Technet, not exactly an endorsement of codec packs, etc. (third party fixes):

    Windows 7 Media player 12

    Hope this helps!

    ...have you installed any third party codec package or player? If so, the default autoplay settings can be changed. I suggest you temporarily remove those third party player and go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\AutoPlay and choose "Reset all defaults", press "Save". Then, you can restart the computer and see the result.

    Before you even consider a third party fix for WMP or WMC in Windows 7 ensure that your hardware is capable, configured properly and that all of your installed drivers are the latest. New drivers are being released each day for W7 so check often.

    Also note that these third party fixes are not required for playback of the most common media types and furthermore third party fixes can cause additional issues in playback that can become difficult to troubleshoot. Windows 7 has added support for additional media formats not previously available in the default setup. Please consult your hardware providers and Microsoft support directly for any playback issues in W7 before attempting so called third party fixes.

    On Quote 1:
    This was part of a post written by a Microsoft MVP (Sean Zhu), who was actually recommending Shark007's codec pack. He included the disclaimer to release MS from liability.
    This was the users response to Sean's recommendation:
    Response:
    "Sean Zu thank you so much for answering my question, just wish to confirm the link you sent shark007. works like a dream, thank you."

    On Quote 2:
    The OP on that thread had an issue with DVD's autoplaying in WMP and not WMC. Sean asked if the OP had installed any additional codec packs, the OP replied a month later stating that he hadn't.
    Response:
    Hi Sean, I apologize for the late response. Thank you for responding for the issue, I have not installed any third party codec, as windows 7 does have many codecs. I have tried the autoplay option, however media center is not an option there.

    Nothing in either of those posts points to anything remotely negative about Shark007's codec pack.

    Best is to get no Codec pack (and I know shark will disagree). I have had too much trouble with them in the past. Windows7 is already very good with codecs and VLC is even better. When I step on one that both cannot handle, I use Format Factory ( Format Factory - Free media file format converter ) to convert them to something more common.

    @Orpheus, with the lack of attention to my complete post, I find your reply at best pure argument for arguments sake. Please respond to my whole post.

    I believe that I paid your post much more attention than it deserved. Your response appeared to be nothing more than an attempt to relate some totally unrelated posts on another forum to a post here requesting suggestions for a codec pack. The only "issue" regarding codec packs was one that you had inferred, and was not raised by other members on this thread.
    Shark007 has produced an excellent package, which is used by thousands of people who don't have any problems with it, and he also provides support on his website for those who may have slight issues. I strongly dislike seeing people being defamed for absolutely no reason whatsoever, and that is what you have attempted to do here in this thread by misquoting information that is unrelated to the product that we were discussing.
    If you want to solely use Microsoft software, that's your prerogative, but please understand that not everyone subscribes to your train of thought. Although W7 is an excellent product, it has it's limitations as no OS can do everything for everybody.
    I find one of the main joys of using Windows 7 is experiencing and discovering new features, functions, and compatible software that empowers me to perform tasks. I appreciate the help and advice that I receive here, and try to give back to the sevenforums community by helping others, which is what I believe the majority of others are here for. I also believe that Shark007 is a prime example of someone who likes to help others in overcoming the limitations of bundled MS software.

    Thousands, huh? How many people do you think have already installed W7? Thousands? How about many millions. I am not trying to defame anyone or anything but am simply suggesting people try alternative measures before what I consider extreme measures, unsupported third party software.

    I might also add that some people might consider that I have been defamed here. I appreciate free speech and appreciate your comments, though I strongly disagree that a codec pack solves all issues. I have noticed very few dissenting opinions to mine.

    One question


    I have a question to Mr. Shark007:

    I have a few movie files in *.MKV format under Win 7 ult. 64-bit.
    My favorite player is PowerDVD

    Is that possible somehow to play these files with PowerDVD ???

    Please give me the most simple solutions to play these files, but with the possibility to have chance to set the speakers.
    I mean, if I use Windows media player 64-bit or other software, I can't set the speakers output mode to: Dolby Pro Logic IIx, or True Theater Surround, like in PowerDVD.
    P.S. I don't like KMPlayer or BSPlayer I prefer PowerDVD

    I would try your pack of codes , but you package them in a way that I cannot see the contents.

    I want to know what files are installing and what version they are i use Universal Extractor to unpack .the files so I know whats inside them..

    Could you give us a listing?
