"Almost does it all."

February 28, 2010  |  By VegasSmitty

 |  Version: Windows 7 Codec Pack 2.3

Pros

Gets a B+ grade.

Cons

Still needs a bit of work, still had to add additional codecs for sound on some videos.

Summary

With a little more work it would be perfect.

"Loaded with Adware"

February 13, 2010  |  By SamSym

 |  Version: Windows 7 Codec Pack 2.3

Pros

I felt the codecs should have been a clean download of codecs I needed.

Cons

I had to be very cautious what I ticked off or a malware was on my way.

Summary

There are better ways to get reliable codecs for you computer, DiVX, XVID and they work with almost any video program.

"Ignore previous reviewer"

January 05, 2010  |  By windows7codecs-com

 |  Version: Windows 7 Codec Pack 2.3

Pros

The pack supports a lot more formats than the immediately obvious, filling the gaps left by Windows 7's very basic file support.

Cons

Nothing, it's free and it works.

Summary

There are a lot of components in the package, simply select the expert install and you'll be shown a list, with detailed descriptions to the right as you mouse over the list.
Windows 7 does not support FLAC, MPC, OGM, OGG etc. without this codec pack.
Windows 7 will not load subtitles without this codec pack.
Windows 7's AC3 and DTS decoding is very primative and often will not output over SPDIF to a home theatre amplifier/receiver, ffdshow and AC3Filter in this codec pack will.
Windows 7's own mkv splitter is unreliable, the one in this pack is better.
