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

Often introduce vulnerabilities or problems, also may well cause newer
codecs to be overwritten with previous stuff, or other settings.
 
Anybody serious about video work tend to avoid them like the plague.

        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?

                        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, 
                        _______________________________
