    I'm on vista and it seems that Windows Media Player won't read the AVI file.

    AVI is just a container (think zip file, almost anything can be in it)

    This being said CCCP puts together a nice pack containing all you need:

    Are there any new codecs that have been made since January and need to be in the CCCP pack?

    VLC is the best media player for any format. Free, works on any platform, and compatible with freakin anything.

    CCCP and K-Lite are kinda crap. Either just go with VLC, MPC or GOM or even WMP. All shall work fine.

    I use WMP with CCCP.

    I like WMP because of the pretty interface and the ease of use to rip and burn music cds.

    I use VLC as a last resort because it is just a plain media player. But VLC is by far the best thing ever to grace the porno downloading scene. [​IMG]

    A simple original question does not need us derailing the thread but OK
    k-lite last I checked it was one of those really bloated packs and things do not seem to have changed:
    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm
    There is FFDshow and xvid and divx all in one. Likewise there are 5 main mpeg2 decoders (6 if you count the somewhat unstable part of ffdshow)
    2 ac3/dts decoders/filters
    and so on and so on
    The "STANDARD" version is nominally better mind you by the looks of things.

    VLC, MPC or GOM or even WMP
    VLC, a fine player but not overly customisable.
    MPC, pretty good but it is usually being used with FFDShow and co that makes it.
    GOM, no comment as I have not played with it in several years.
    WMP, urgh. Wait the bass audio filter is not that bad.

    re: now new CCCP. As Mewgia points out it will work and you can do things by hand if it really becomes pressing (anyone on a vista machine should have enough to run nearly anything going).

    This.

    Are people actually serious about VLC? Nowadays, whenever I see someone mentions VLC people usually laugh at them or troll them.

    I guess.

    I only use VLC for FLVs because MPC with CCCP doesn't seem to like them...
