Windows 7: what is the best codec for win 7

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
 
 

I would try K Lite. Shark bashes it a lot but I really don't know why he calls it K-Crap, it has served me very well with Media Player Classic installed for a very long time.

Personally I just use TheKMPlayer
Plays everything I throw at it. I know it's a player rather than a codec but still a good option.

Simply use VLC media player, pretty much the best, it's free, and plays everything.
