"Finally! Clean, easy install, Virus free and works!"
Version: Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack 5.0
Easy fast install,Not a bunch of miscellaneous junk to clutter your drive.
Unable to find any!
I tried numerous other codec packs...FFD, DivX, K Lite...they either alerted my AVG antivirus and would not install completely, or videos played without sound...or did not play at all.. I will give this one a 9.5 out of 10!
