    I tried to install the codec pakg but I get a message that says (IN RED) that all codec related installations must be removed before installing this new package. How do I remove "all codec related installations"?
    Since the message is in red, it hints at dire consequences if I just proceed on with the installation of this new package.

    It was the Win7codecs_v366 that was shown on AfterDawn yesterday to be installed into Windows Media Player for Windows 7 and would allow it to play additional formats. It was listed as a new replacement for Windows 7.
    Thanks.

    it sounds like you already have some sort of codec pack installed.if so it should be uninstalled prior to installing the new pack.if you want to avoid all this crap with wmp,download the vlc media player.no codec pack needed.it will play pretty much anything you throw at it.

    I have not installed any codec pack since re-installing Windows 7 but I have installed Nero; could be its multimedia pack. Will try deleting it.

    Thanks.

    Since the scene switched there rules to x264 I've been having issues playing that format. k-lite codec pack with Windows media center in most cases it's like watching Kung Fu theater where audio is out of sync then I try and use VLC and the video gets all jacked. What am I to do :))

    Vista Ult x64

    Is VLC up to date? It should play x264 fine; perhaps the file is corrupt.
