    "Spyware, Spyware, Spyware"

    January 05, 2014   |   By memoryguru

    Version: Vista Codec Package 6.5.2

    Pros

    nothing that I've discovered yet... still have to go through my computer four or five more times in safe mode to get rid of the registry junk this app puts in. That's after a few runs in Windows removing all the re-routed settings.

    Cons

    I pity the poor, naive average user who has no clue how to get rid of all the malware this app installs.

    Summary

    DO NOT INSTALL - run away as fast as possible!

    "Didn't find it of much use"

    April 28, 2010   |   By rasheed12824

    Version: Vista Codec Package 5.6.8

    Pros

    - allows playback of some files on some players

    Cons

    - lot of extra stuff you won't need

    Summary

    All you really need is install the latest stable revision of ffdshow tryout, and:
    (1) configure it to work with your favourite media players
    (2) configure the libavcodec to handle most if not all video formats.

    "Worked for .mov files in Vista Media Center"

    September 27, 2009   |   By garyleebrown

    Version: Vista Codec Package 5.4.3

    Pros

    Could not get Casio camera .mov files to play in Vista Media Center using K-lite. Uninstalled K-lite and installed this plus the x64 update.
    It not only played the .mov files in VMC, but also showed the thumbnails which did not show before.

    Cons

    Have not found any after just an hour of use

    Summary

    You can download the x64 file by clicking on the publisher's name 'Shark007' to show his other products.

    Thanks Shark007 !

    "just pass this one up"

    September 15, 2009   |   By hunter3740

    Version: Vista Codec Package 5.4.2

    Pros

    seemed promising as far as codec for Windows Media Player (uninstalls fine, and didn't seem to invite malware).

    Cons

    1) Windows error report towards the end of the install, 2) had to use the Settings Application (link in Start menu, see screenshot) to set things like single core (default was dual); i.e. not for basic users, and 3) didn't play DVDs in media player.

    Summary

    For DVD playback, nothing like the software that came with your physical player, or just go with VLC Player.

    Not my recomendation, but if you don't want VLC (or don't want to *pay* for a DVD decoder from Roxio, Sonic, Cyberlink, or Corel), you would be better off getting "ffdshow" (which will have www.ffmpeg.org (MPEG-2/DVD), www.divx.com, and www.xvid.org (popular .avi)), but it includes a standalone working media player ("classic", which is NOT to be confused with Windows Media Player); but mind you, this is basically what shark007 is providing, just that they include a player that works.

    Version: Vista Codec Package 5.4

    Pros

    Cons

    Incorrect Link

    Summary

    CNET has provided a bad link. The link is to download avs video converter not the vista coded package. To download the right file go here. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5326
