I've used Shark007's codecs for a while, and I also got a false positive recently.

Shark007's stuff can be trusted, without question.

Just make sure you get it from Major Geeks.
i downloaded and installed sharks from majorgeeks after completely uninstalling k-lite. i wanted to finally compare the two. in sharks i kept getting video freezes where i did not get freezing in k-lite. the only thing i could see with shark over k-lite is out of the gate the sound was set perfect. with k-lite i had to go in and check one box. i'll deal with having to check one box if it means i do not have to deal with video freezing. so i am staying with k-lite.

A default installation of the Shark007 codecs does not change anything upon install. Everything is still being decoded by the Microsoft decoders. After installation, I suggest you open the settings application and use the suggested settings checkbox if you are unsure what settings you may need.

once a codec pack is installed it is the one doing the decoding. pre k-lite using wmp no freezing. k-lite installed using mpc no freezing. snarks codec pack installed using mpc freezing.

I'm interested in installing Sharks codec pack. However, I have a concern. Why would I have to install a 32 bit application first, before I install the 64 bit? I don't see how that makes any sense.

The x64 Components are an 'addon' to the 32bit installation.
addon = not a standalone product.

K-lite got separate releases. you can get and install only 32 or 64 or both. they don't interfere.

Okay, so tell me Shark. Right now I haven't encountered any problems with WMP 12, but I'm sure I will eventually, it's the default player in 7 Ultimate x64. If I install your codec pack, I shouldn't expect any future trouble playing any file type? You seem pretty knowledgable in this area, so I'm just asking if it's a good idea to install your codec pack as a preventative measure for future problems? I'm not a power media user or anything, just your normal video files I'll be trying to play.

The reason I'm leary of codec packs is that I've had a few bad experiences with them. A few times I had to reinstall the OS it was so bad.

One last question. Will it play flash video's, and VOB DVD media?
