"All the things you need a single package.... And It's FREE!!!"

October 13, 2007  |  By jag19

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 1.1

Pros

DVD's are played as good as they were meant to be played... And the best of all it's FREE!!!

Cons

It's a heavy package (more than 17 MB for codecs?), but considering all it can play, its a real bargain

"Works but heaps on the Adware Bunk"

February 25, 2014  |  By cryptkicker

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 1.1

Pros

This codec pack does play all the formats it claims (5 star!)

Cons

Heaps on pop-ups and adware, altering my Google homepage into a cluttered ad-space and popping up an annoying ad with every click (0 stars there)

Summary

Difficulty of removing all the adware is not worth the convenience of the codec. Better to just convert the files using After Effects or some other conversion process.

"Deffinately Quite Pleased"

January 07, 2008  |  By itsagiven2006

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 1.1

Pros

Man...Ive been looking for hours for a player that would play multiple files without having to clcik on one at a time to no avail. then got the bright idea to get a codec pack that would play my Flv files ... Finally !!! Success ! whew ! Now I can use my media player classic for all my codec files thanks for this codec pack...Btw if anyone is looking for an all in one player there are two i use all the time one is mpclassic it only has two files for that utilitly program ... it does it all ! then there is zoom player that does it all as well ... check em out ... you wont be disappointed. Also zoom player dont worry about the demo the only inconvenience when it expires is having to wait 7 seconds to press tab 1 2 or 3 ... mpclassic is not a demo nor a trial its a permanent .... hope this helps you all to save yourselves a lot of trouble ... one more thing save flash is another goodie that retrieves flash vids xtube youtube etc to your history cache then is retrievable from there to save to your hhd or any other drive you prefer...save flash is only 19.99 and it works well . the trial is 15 days fully functionable ... i plan to uninstall then reinstall LOL ...Well there you have it .

Cons

What else can one ask for ? It's FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE LOL

"Could not play AVI although it said it could"

December 30, 2007  |  By Shevot

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 1.1

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Total waste of a download and hard drive space. I downloaded it because it said it could support AVI however after installing it the AVI codec said "disabled" and had no option or instructions on how to enable it. I still could not play the AVI movie. Perhaps there is a way to enable it or get around this, but I tried several things and could not find a solution, so it there is one it is not obvious. The interface is not user friendly. I will try something else.

"excellent as it iterfaces perfectly with Windows Media Center"

December 30, 2007  |  By chipahoy57

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 1.1

Pros

Getting the Media Player Codec Pack 1.1 sure beats paying Nero another $100 since they abandoned support of the 6.3 version that was included with my LG DVD burner. What a rip off Nero is. When you try to use the player, it gives you a pop up advising you that the version you are trying to use no longer supports MPEG4 and disables the player. Shame on you Nero! I tell everyone I know not to buy their products as there is no support after the sale.

Cons

there is no chapter skip control, only variable fast forward speeds. but, a small price to pay for a excellent free media player.

"Great fix!"

December 17, 2007  |  By poppyseed0054

 |  Version: Media Player Codec Pack 1.1

Pros

I like using Windows Media Player, but it just doesn't play everything. Instead of using my free FLV player (poor quality) I can now use WMP (way better quality). I installed this program 2 weeks ago, with no known conflicts. I'm using XP Pro.
