    A codec pack is a lot less trouble than finding every single codec you need every time you attempt to open a media file, which seems to be the other alternative suggested.

    If you're having problems with a codec pack, I don't see how it's "more trouble than it's worth" to uninstall the bundle in approximately 3 clicks.

      It seems there can be occasional problems with mixing codec packs.

      I once had some packs do something so obscene to my PC that video playback in any player only showed the centre portion of any .avi or .mpg file. It wasn't fixed by uninstalling, or adding new codec packs.

      Luckily, it occurred during a pre-reinstall software binge.

          Ah, but what if you don't use the mouse? What if I use MouseKeys and spacebar and tab?

            Codec packs generally have conflicts with the codecs installed.

            ffdshow is a filter pack which plays everything I've thrown at it, and it doesn't have conflicts.

                    All you need is the Xvid Codec and Mediaplayer Classic for a nice player.

                    Then if you need it, AC3 Filter for surround sound movies, and VobSub if you need to view subtitles.

                    This should really allow you to view just about every movie out there, without installing tons of codecs.
