[THIN] Re: Codecs for Media Player 10 on Windows 2003

Times have changed Neil J But I do agree and take your point. KLite was
evil until I spent some time to understand what it was doing to the
registry, and why. You've just got to learn to tame the beast. Some of
my larger customers will only use Media Player, so I don't often get a
choice.

 

Cheers,

Jeremy.

Codec packs are evil, avoid them at all costs. My advice - use a
"codec-less" player (like VLC or mplayerc).

        Use the KLite Codec Pack standard. Works a treat.

        Just be cautious when installing it, as the K-Lite Codec Pack
assumes files and registry keys are in specific locations as it attempts
to validate them. In cases when they are not, such as the Citrix Audio
Driver, Citrix Audio DirectX Media Object (DMO) Filter and Citrix Video
DirectX Media Object (DMO) Filter, these registry keys and values are
removed.

        If you are manually installing it, you can say NO to removing
the registry keys. But if you are silently installing it, you don't get
an option. So after a silent install I re-import some registry keys
critical to the Citrix Audio driver.

        Cheers,

        Jeremy.

        VLC, or media player classic?

2003

                Hi all: 
                I've got a request to install codecs (codec pack) for
Media Player 10 on Windows 2003 terminal server that is not connected to
the Internet.

                I've searched for them, but I can't find anything on the
Microsoft site.  Does MS not make them available as a download?

                Is there anything else that I can install that works
well? 

                Thanks, 
                _______________________________
