Don't know would it be useful but anyway. I use these files in order to play (place them in system32 during unattended):
1. Quick Time v6:
QuickTime.ax (register as other codecs through .reg or .bat-.cmd files)
qtmlClient.dll
QuickTime.qts
QuickTimeAuthoring.qtx
QuickTimeEssentials.qtx
QuickTimeStreaming.qtx

2. Real Plyaer 8-9:
RealMediaSplitter.ax (register as other codecs through .reg or .bat-.cmd files)
atrc3260.dll
cook3260.dll
drv13260.dll
drv23260.dll
drv33260.dll
drv43260.dll
pncrt.dll
sipr3260.dll
tokr3260.dll

These work on all files I tried. But there is no support for Internet I guess. There are about two more files to add for this (I don't need it as I download media files first).

By the way try this very interesting application from Linux World: Mplayer v1.0pre5 at
www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/win32-beta/ (there is a Windows version). It replaces most codecs and plays stream from Web. It is for command line (there are some GUIs available) but it is really universal and easy when you get used for two or three commands (I automated it by including them through .reg file during unattended :)

@SiMoNsAyS: yes

@Oleg_II: thanks i'll try that...


I got this error:
Error:  Invalid command-line parameters
& I also couldn't integrate the REG file...


@ALL: reg-file was not in ANSI-Format (was UTF)

oops, here was a little typo:
..."%appdata%\QuickTime\"...

should be
..."%appdata%\QuickTime"...

-> without the backslash after QuickTime (big difference!)

=> get the attached file

Is it OK to not load QTTASK on startup?
will it be loaded when needed?

as i understood it, QTTASK's only job is to display the quicktime icon in the taskbar... (-> useless)

then you should remove it from start up with your Reg file, or the batch (10x)

that's why I asked..

my guess, your pack show this in RUN before reboot:
QuickTime Task="C:\WINDOWS\system32\qttask.exe" -atboottime
QTTASk appears after reboot...

I don't really know what -atboottime does...

this entry is the fault of
regsvr32 /s %systemroot%\system32\QTPlugin.ocx

but without registering this ocx-file there's no QT support in any browser...

just add
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"QuickTime Task"=-
to the codecreg.reg

(I hope QTTASK doesn't come back, after deleting it and a reboot afterwards!)

I'm after reboot now & I have no QTTask running, but I still have this entrie, which I don't really know what it does...

maybe i had QTTask running becuase I nstalled the CODEC with the bad REG file...

could you add
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"QuickTime Task"=-
so that no1 has this entrie...?

yes, i'll add it.

qttask.exe gets created as soon as you register the mentioned ocx...



@ALL: would you prefer a large codec-pack, containing everything (Quicktime, Realplayer and the rest like divx, ac3,etc) or a modular codec-pack, splittet in 3 parts:
- codec-pack (with divx, ac3, etc)
- quicktime
- realplayer

Seeing as I'd be using all the codecs, I would like the full larger codec pack.

I do like the module idea.

I'd prefer both of them, a large big file, and splitted in three parts, too :>

The one thing I love about this that I HATE about almost all other codec packs is that this DOESN'T include a media player. I LOVE THAT!

I use WMP10 and VLC and I don't need any other media player.

@swgreed...I broke real alt and quick alt's installer and made a inno setup script for both...if ya want, I can send you what Ive done so far, maybe itll help you in adding them to your pack...I would also like to cast my vote for a large file...but even a 3-pack wouldnt be bad...and yes, I created the inno setup because you said you werent gonna include quicktime and real at any time ;) I also made one for your pack too...havent downloaded it in a while, but I didnt like the cmd thing happening, so I converted it to a inno setup. pm me, or reply if youd like what ive made so far.
When I spotted this little cutie with some sex appeal. I winked at her, she gave me a look like I'm a booger. I thought b***h, I'd rather spend my money on a hooker. Then a bright idea ran across my mind, if I could swipe a manikin I'd have a freak all the time.

did my inno setup thing, and got the file down to 12.7mb (same uncompressed about...prolly less, cuz I dont have the reg files or the cmd in there, but pretty much the same uncompressed size) one note...its still better than installing their crap software...And, using the alt and codecs seperately total size is 20mb

Thanks to evilvoice, I could optimize the installation process.
I consider it stable now, so you can find the update (version 2.0 :)) on the 1st page.

changes:
- mainly fixing bugs
- file association icons should work now!

todo:
- add 3rd party browser plugins for QuickTime
- remove unneeded stuff from the pack, if possible

:hello:

Now that you have added QT & RM codecs to your pack, I've tried again to play my MP4 files, but with no success...

I reinstalled the Mpegable decoder I've found recsently, & finally found the needed files...

I figured out that registering those file without installation works perfect...

the only problem is that you must register all codecs (AUDIO & VIDEO) othewise the file won't play...

If you want I'll EMail you the files, they are too big for posting...

Dammit, the packs are coming out to quickly :P Just burned my unattended cd the other day :)

But no problem, id rather have alot of updates then none!

Also, split the installer up, i dont want qt o realplayer, other than quick/real alternative ofc, then one big one is ok.

Edit: 7z-file :/ guess im not updating my cd today.. Do you need mirrors?
