Do you think you could possibly make a Real and Quicktime alternative pack as well? They can be seperated from this pack. They're in some other custom codec pack that you can find on here. The creator stopped updating his pack, though. So I'd be nicer if someone else could step in and start making them. :(

Those are already posted somewhere else , both as switchless installers.
You can also do this yourself with winrar

Setup=realalt148.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-
TempMode
Silent=1
Overwrite=1

Setup=quicktimealt170.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-
TempMode
Silent=1
Overwrite=1

back on topic...
Is there any way to avoid the popup?

huh @ QT & RM Alternatives, the installers for those offer a user to make a silent install with only the components you want. No winrar or sfx needed to do it.
Run the setup with the command-line parameter -MakeUnattended to create an unattended setup. Follow the wizard...

On topic:
PopUp box is to do with TempMode=1
Edit the sfx comment to TempMode without the =1

Now do you have the answer for my question...lol

(myself)on another note..
I notice the ac3filter.cpl when launched only works in offline mode.
Any1 now the cmd to launch it online mode ?



Cheers

Here's a custom codec pack (no installer, just the codecs with an inf-install method!) ;)
Supported media: DivX, XviD, DVD's, Mpgs, WMV, Subtitles, Indeo, AC3, MP3, VP6, Ogg Vorbis
For installation tips see the 'README.txt' in the rar-file!

This codec pack comes without any media player (hence I recommend the latest Zoom Player 4.51!)
and contains just the codecs, I considered to be most useful/compatible:

Contents (31.05.2006)

* DivX 6.2.2 [Decoder]
* XviD 1.2.0-dev build 2006-04-20 [Encoder/Decoder]
* Windows Media 9 VCM [version 9.0.1.369] [Encoder]
* Windows Media 10 [version 10.0.0.4332]
* Cyberlink DVD Decoder [version 6.0.2.2806]
* Elecard MPEG 2 Demultiplexer [version 2.0.84.30429]
* Ligos Indeo XP [version 5.2820.15.58]
* Intel Indeo [version 4.51.16.2]
* Intel Indeo [version 3.24.15.03]
* Intel I.263 [version 2.55.1.16]
* MS MPEG-4 [version 4.1.0.3927] [Encoder]
* On2 VP7 [version 7.0.10.0] [Encoder/Decoder]
* MP3 Decoder [version 1.9.0.311]
* Fraunhofer IIS MPEG Layer-3 DirectShow decoder [version 1.9.0.311]
* Fraunhofer IIS MPEG Layer-3 Codec for MSACM [version 3.4.0]
* WMA DirectShow Decoder [version 8.0.0.4487]
* VobSub [1.0.1.3] + CPL
* AC3 Filter 1.02 test8 + CPL
* Ogg Vorbis [version 1.1.0]
* GSpot 2.52 beta 1 build 2004-09-15

updated: - Layer-3 Codec for MSACM [version 3.4.0]
changed: - silent exe-installation also possible
fixed (hopefully): - qasf.dll problem


Version 2.5

runonce-compatible version:
Download location
(6.57 MB)

nlite-compatible version (thx to Kelsenellenelvian):

How would one activate the Silent install? Would you just add the /silent parameter when running it?

I tried this, but it first came up with a "Yes/No" window with the number 1 as text above it. I just clecked yes. Could this be removed?

Also, it said some files where already on my system, what should i do? should i say it must replace them or not? I'd suggest the installer compare the file versions of files that already exist. If the file on the users computer is newer than what is in the installer it could not copy the file during instal, but if installers version is newer it copies it. Just a suggestion, this would make for a true silent install.

Good work with this pack. I was originally looking for a way to silently install the XviD codec, and found this. If you don't mind me asking, what files did u use for XviD install? I'd like to create installer with InnoSetup that just installs XviD as this is all i really need.

@Salem look up the post before yours , the answer is there about the PopUp on launch..

Here's answer in a bit more detail..lol
Open the codecs2.5.exe with winrar. (either open winrar and navigate to the codecs2.5.exe or right click codecs2.5.exe and select "open with winrar" )

once open in winrar click the "Info" button at top of screen.

In the window that pops up click the "Comments" tab.

where it says TempMode=1 , change it to TempMode (in other words remove the =1)

Click Ok button at bottom of Info window , close winrar..
Done.

Your other issues are still being worked on (I gather/hope).. Bottom line though , The pack is customisable to suit your needs with a little research.

Edit: oops forgot to answer:
Xvid Files:
xvid.ax
xvidcore.dll
xvidvfw.dll

Xvid Reg Entries:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\drivers.desc]
"xvidvfw.dll"="XviD MPEG-4 Video Codec"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"vidc.XVID"="xvidvfw.dll"

XviD Register Filter:
regsvr32.exe /s xvid.ax

Cheers

That's not what I was requesting. Those packs are bloated since they both have media players. I'm just wanting the codecs. And this is on topic, since I'm requesting ... codecs ... and this thread is about ... codecs. ;)

Thank You for adding MD5 to first post and fixing Tempmode.. All good


MP3 ??????? Argggg, Since no1 will tell me otherwise ....I give up ...
As I said twice before
your entries are WRONG!!!!.....
(no offence meant)


Thank You swgreed for the excellent work you've put into this pack , much appreciated
Thank you Yzöwl for your awsome inf work, it's given me a greater understanding of inf files to be able to see that some of those mp3 entries in current day codecs.inf are adding instead of removing and vice versa..etc

All the best in future work in this codec pack. ( as this pack rocks )
I will stop posting about this now.


cheers.

I have said that I will be looking at making changes but this, when done, will only be passed to swgreed for approval. It is his pack, the fact that I have contributed, gives me no say over changes or fixes. I will look at what I wanted to do and any changes which I consider needed, in good time. As for the changes, I will not be rushing them out. I have no intention of pushing out daily updates on request, like many other applications etc. on these forums. There are many reported things over the last few pages, it would for me be more efficient to wait until the storm has passed before making good.

I'd be glad if Yzöwl would contribute an updated inf-file. With this uninstallation feature, this installation process will be more and more complex.
However, it is not my intention to create another of those countless "codec packs" or compete with existing ones.
The inf-method is a good way to install it silently using cab-compressed files. You also have just the option to install all of it or nothing, unless you edit the inf-installer.

I should have made my self clear ... the media players make the file sizes significantly larger. It's a waste of space to have a media player built into RealAlternative and QuicktimeAlternative ... especially when that media player is not going to be used.

There was once a codecpack available that featured RA & QT, but it was very crappy... It lacked proper browser support and IMHO it also was too bloated.
You can also see it this way: by installing the "QT & RA alternatives" you already save a lot of space compared to the original versions of QT and RA.

@Dumpy Dooby you could try this codec pack which has QT & RM without MPC.
But it comes with many other codecs as well , so the size part might not suit your needs.

Yeah, that's the one I had been using. It was outdated when I was requesting seperate packs. In any event, it was just updated and I've already added it to my disc. Thanks a bunch. :)

I am not quite sure, but it seems to me that you included sometimes two codecs for one purpose. Did you check the dependancies throroughly ? A bloated codecpack can be got at every corner... :)


Be more specific... Which ones?

MS MPEG4 (encoder):
Oops, this encoder was removed ages ago (MPG4c32.dll & MPG4ds32.ax), maybe I should update the readme-file ;)

Xvid (encoder and decoder) & DiVX 6 (decoder):
Xvid would be enough, but I think it's best to decode the file with the same codec as it was encoded (xvid-> xvid), (divx->divx)
Therefore I also didn't include "fddshow"
The divx decoder also has more finetuning options than xvid. Maybe some people prefer this one...
Also note that there's no divx-encoder!
