    PC Codecs

    Hey,

    Following on from my recovering data from HD thread, I have hooked up on old HD to my new computer.

    I have some movies on the HD that I would like to access - but that no longer work on the new computer. I presume this is due to codecs that I had on the old machine? Or is it Vista maybe?

    Is there a site where I can download everything I might need onto the new computer?

    ]http//ww…om/theres a site im sure i have the k-lite codecs and this site has them all

    If you mean that your media player can't open the files, just use VLC media player. It has pretty much every codec you will ever need to use already built-in. I use it to play movies and TV shows (HD sometimes) I download and it has never failed me.

    it is quite common that a divx codec needs to be installed - you can get one at [url]www.divx.com[/url]

    EDIT- this was the problem on a friends vista comp and after installing this for them it worked

    vlc no need to install codecs

    thumbs up

    I don't understand your comments Hayton about VLC. Do you approve of it, or not? VLC is excellent, all the codecs and works very well with Sopcast.

    I'd recommend it, quick, simple and easy download (XP at least)

    ?? HAve you recovered the operating system and using that on the HD - or is it just another HD inside the machine? If the later, its because the rigistry wont have the codecs installed. Just re-install them (for which ever it is!)

    Thats a bit ambiguous! Are you talking about codecs here?

    If it is, give this one a go free-codecs.com/dow…htm or just use that site for more specific stuff.

    How can VLC be boring?? Maybe you should stop downloading the news and watching it:giggle:

    I second/third/whatever the recommendations for VLC, it's a superb program which instantly solves most codec problems. It seems almost wrong using it as it's so simple, I'm used to having to hunt down specific codecs, trying to resolve resulting codec conflicts etc.

    what the hells good about a CONE which you listen to mp3s on with a gay little line going across
    id hate to see how bad a dvd is on it

    Talk about not judging a book by its cover, you don't like a program because of its icon?

    DVD playback is great, you're just talking nonsense.

    John

    I agree with hayton, don't touch VLC Player it has a cone!!!!!!

    Your language is unacceptable especially if you expect people to take you seriously. If you read your own replies you've criticised the icon several times which is what my post was referring to.

    The thread creater was looking for recommendations on suitable methods of playing back video files and based on your 'contributions' to this thread so far you should perhaps take your own advice about keeping your nose out.

    Doesn't sound like a Vista problem.

    Try this codec pack:
