4 out of 5
PROS: Helps you watch videos of all types without having to install different codecs each time. the relatively small and efficient download.
CONS: If not installed correctly, you can add lots of stuff that you will never use. In another program is lightweight, I don’t like installing programs are never use on my PC.
VERDICT: If you try to play video with Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center and you either yet no sound, no video, or nothing at all, this codec pack will likely fix that problem. Thus, I recommend this program to all Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center users.
VERSION REVIEWED: 2.2.0
DOWNLOAD: Windows 7 Codecs Pack
