"Been using this a while"

May 03, 2012  |  By Radiodruid

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 4.2

Pros

The last version worked great for me and this version is just as good if not better.

Cons

Options for enabling bluray have changed a little, so pay attention to the last part of the installer.

"Not for .FLV files"

May 12, 2012  |  By kingmick13

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 4.2

Pros

none yet but still hoping for one.

Cons

Comes with Babylon Virus Bar. Will not decode .FLV's.

Summary

Beware. Make sure to look for reviews for the specific file type you are trying to play before downloading because getting rid of the Babylon Virus Bar is a big waste of time if you didn't get what you wanted in the first place.
