"Fixed my AVI files not playing video"

October 09, 2014  |  By dkump

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

Simple and fast.

Cons

None so far.

Summary



Updated on Oct 10, 2014

Update: Immediately after installing this application, I attempted to play an AVI file using one of my (already open) media players and AVG said it detected an unknown Trojan in the media player. I tested with another antivirus and it didn't say anything about the file. Coincidence? Perhaps, but considering I use that media player all the time and it happened within two minutes of installing this codec, I'm concerned.

"Cured Windows"

July 06, 2013  |  By rchpjf

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

Windows 7 Media Center after some update stopped playing a lot of my avi files. I spent a lot of time researching a cause and/or fix because I did not want to download any more codecs because I had done it before and it made all my videos play with less volume. I finally gave up and tried this one. It not only now plays all my files again but without any loss of volume. Thanks!

Cons

None that I have found to this date.

"Didn't accomplish what I wanted - nothing has."

September 04, 2012  |  By GATOR-HATER

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

I installed because a upgraded to a 64-bit system and found that
Machete Lite thinks all AVI files are corrupt. But it didn't promise
it would and it didn't harm my system It IS NOT malware as some have implied.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

If it helped I didn't notice as I could play and edit my avi files
with several players and editors. But it certainly didn't harm anything. So I rated it 4 stars because that was the average rating.

"Allows Adobe to read and play older avi files correctly"

April 15, 2011  |  By gary12x

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

Works for me.

Cons

Haven't found any yet.

Summary

I am able to revive my old avi files which would not play or open properly in my Adobe production applications (After Effects and Premiere). This is a great service to offer this free download. Thanks CNET!

"Works Great for what I wanted!"

February 12, 2011  |  By Hardwaretech

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

Fast download, easy to install, allows me to play avi files with windows media player.

Cons

None found so far

Summary

All I wanted was to be able to play avi and hd video with windows media player and this "fixes" the problem that shouldn't even exist. Microsoft should package this or something like it with media player. In short, it works and doesn't mess up my system.

"Works fine"

April 05, 2010  |  By the_annoying_one

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

It's FREE, easy to install and includes all codecs for main stream media

Cons

Nothing bad at all

Summary

Another user stated they had problems, but anyone with any experience of codecs knows not to install 2 codec packs at the same time. It's kind of like putting water, screen wash and petrol in the fuel tank of a car.

I also took the recommendation from another reviewer to test the .exe on virus total (virustotal.com) and it showed as clean.

"Same Aw Window Codec Pro - Will Not Uninstall"

March 17, 2010  |  By dirtknocker22

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

Once installed my movie maker and nero now lock up. Mouse opens everything with one click. Cannot uninstall the program. Says its uninstalled but all files still run.

Cons

Way too big an installation for just codec files. Messed up my system and will not uninstall. Says it uninstalled succesfully but all the files are there and run if clicked on.
Malware as far as im concerned. Same as Windows Codec Pro Pack

Summary

If you install it you will have it forever as it will not uninstall although it indicates it did.
My mouse, Nero and Movie Maker are now messed up. No telling what else is going on yet. Wish I had never tried it.

Updated on Mar 17, 2010

"Just a normal codec pack"

January 22, 2010  |  By lovelyl1976

 |  Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

Pros

It seems alright, Just a normal codec pack. If there is a virus just don't download the toolbar, those are full of virus's and spyware.

Cons

Doesn't have as many codecs as other free ones have. Better off with Cole2K media pack and switch on AVI.
