Hiya Peeps,

I only signed on to say a very big thank you to "swgreed". Thanks :D

This really is the most refreshing thing to arrive on the net since codecs began emerging. Personally I download all the most popular codec installation packages and install them. But this little baby fills in the gaps to play anything else that may crop up with media downloaded or aquired through the net and other means.

I use soo many codec packages. It would be nice to develop one installer package that just did everything. Only problem is that because its an insertion of great goodies and registry keys it often leads to programs detecting codecs as being broken or incorrectly installed/uninstalled.

Never-the-less, I am very greatful for this pack. I hope it continues to remain a non-installer package. Its great that I can just browse at what I have and know what I want to do with it. Making an installer is useful but very annoying after a while as you can get issues with the installer and perhaps not realise it until a codec is not used.

I much prefer the currect implementation and want to again thank "swgreed" for this very neat utility package that just contains everything you may ever need to run any form of media found on the internet. I have other seperate stuff that have a mini installer that does other things like play VOXWARE audio that often can be found in some WMV videos.

I also have a small utility that takes care of audio in some older DIVX encoded files that play 4.02 audio. Even DivX 5.2.1 does not play 4.02 audio which is a pain but the mini installer I have takes care of it all. I am also using the DivX 6.1 codec and its pretty awful in my opinion. Im sure 5.2.1 is faster and doesnt have issues with speeding up and slowing down. As a PC systems engineer I know what im doing, its just a little frustrating to upgrade and feel like you're downgrading :P.

Anyway thanks for hearing me out people :D.


PEACE OUT !!!

Hiya Peeps,

Im currently having problems with the "l3codecp.acm" file. Apparently this is supposed to contain the MP3 ACM decoder information. When I use the Radium codec, it works fine and plays all MP3 ACM data in the files I have. It was the cause which stopped one of my emulators to function properly. I still to this day dont know why the MP3 ACM codec suddenly stopped working.

Now I used the Radium codec and all was good, everything was working. Now my Creative Labs SouldBlaster Live! Value card has issues with playing MIDI files. Basically, it doesnt play them. Take a look at this and you will understand my problem: -

This problem is annoying and wont allow me to listen to any kind of midi now :(. Please help.


PEACE OUT !!!

Sure! I guess, this would make things easier to install and/or integrate :)
Drop me an email, if you need anything!

Here is an integratable addon for this codec pack!

Integrate it as an hotfix using nLite or use the RVMintegrator.

Thank You for your efforts on this smick codec pack ..All Good :thumbup

Something I'm noticing with this codec pack.

If I have WMP10 added to my XP UA install and I add the codec pack from runonceex then the codec pack deletes "L3codeca.acm".This would be a good thing if you added these reg change entries:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{7D8EA000-731E-11d0-AC50-00AA00BF35C4}\InProcServer32]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\l3codecp.acm"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{7D8EA000-731E-11d0-AC50-00AA00BF35C4}\InProcServer32]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\l3codecp.acm"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Netshow\Player\Codecs\MPEG Layer-3]
"URL"="http://www.microsoft.com/netshow/codecs.htm"



And add this to remove the l3codeca.acm entry from the registry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\drivers.desc]
"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\l3codeca.acm"=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"msacm.l3acm"=-

Then at least I could playback mp3s with WMP10. Currently your pack pack leaves mp3 playback broken in wmp10.
Mind you I can still rip an audio track to mp3 with WMP10 even though I can't play them in WMP10 after installing 2.0 codecs (actually been like this since I used v1.7)

Reason: mp3 playpack in wmp10 is broken because even though WMP10 comes with the same "L3codecp.acm" codec as in the 2.0 codec pack (for encoding mp3s). But WMP10 still uses "L3codeca.acm" to playback mp3s. Since your codec pack removes the "L3codeca.acm" file and it doesn't alter the CLSID for the MP3 codec in the registry for playback, the CLSID still points to "L3codeca.acm" for playback (windows default).
Hence the reg changes added above fixes this.

Also this way the "L3codecp.acm" mp3 codec can be used in all apps to encode or playback (eg:VirtualDub) not just WMP10 or MPC .

PS. WMP10 is not my player choice, MPC is my player of choice (for those that want to flame about WMP10).

PSS. Sorry if some1 has already posted this , but 41 pages was beyond my time scope to find out.

Cheers

Just a note to let you know that the new 2.1 inf version, if installed on a pre-installed system, by GUI right-click=>install method will not register the DivX Settings Manager for use with Config App. This would need to be done seperately using the commandDivXsm.exe /register
If you use the command line from the readme.txt to install this step is not necessary.

<Edit>
If people wanted something a little more universal in this respect, I suppose that an SFX which extracts, runs the inf with the command I gave in the readme, and deleted the extracted files again, may be a good idea!

I did a fresh install of Windows XP - Reduced Media Edition, added a few good players (Media Player Classic and Zoom Player, both latest versions), and then installed this Codec Pack (2.1).

Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to enable playback of WMV files in either of my media players. I was able to get WMV playback to work by installing Windows Media Lite 2.0 (from free-codecs.com). After browsing more through the forums here, I discovered WM10Lite, which may be an even better (less bloat) choice than Windows Media Lite.

Can someone tell me what is the minimum I need to install in order to enable WMV playback on the Reduced Media Edition of Windows XP?

@runner3734: Reduced Media Editions lack WMV-support completely. This codec pack does not completely install WMV-support, but just update it. I guess, at least wmp.dll is necessary in your case. However overwriting wmp.dll on normal Versions of XP just corrupts the WMP-installation, so it has to be reinstalled)

@all: By the way, Version 2.2 was just released :)

Thank You swgreed :)

It's the little things like equality in cpl's that make me enjoy it all so much more :D
Look forward to trying v2.2 out when I get home.

Maybe AAC codec of some sort would be nice. At the moment if default install of XP ,WMP10,MPC and v2.X codecs and I try to open an m4a file then I'm up for installing more to get it to play.
At the moment for me windows uses nero acc codec to play m4a after I do a fresh UA.
Be nice to know that if I didn't install nero that m4a would play a fresh install.


Cheers.


NitpickEdit: At the bottom of codecs.inf in v2.2
DESCNAME			 = "Codec Pack 2.1 (remove only)"

Thank You for the updated cab kel , think the 1st post should be edited to
added: - CPL applet for XviD configuration (asked for by smashly)
or
added: - CPL applet for XviD configuration (suggested by smashly)
Actually there should be no credit to me at all as I didn't make the xvid cpl.
I leave the cpl making upto the people like you who have it to a fine art ;)

Cheers

EDIT: after investigation with notepad the XviD cpl was made with "Control Panel Applet Generator" from Maintools Software. v2.0 is $19.90 , haven't tried it yet but I intend to:)

The .inf still has the new CoDec pack listed as 2.1, here is the correct .inf file so that your Add / Remove will show the proper version

As pointed out by Smashy above
